From culinary school dropout to Young Chef of the Year, a look at the food and life of a fascinating and unique chef
Mr Hong is as much an exploration of Dan Hong's colorful path through life as it is a beautifully illustrated book of more than 80 Asian recipes, reimagined and reinvigorated by Dan for a new generation of food lovers. Widely recognized as one of Australia's most exciting new talents, Dan grew up in the kitchen of his parents' own Vietnamese restaurant, worked at some of the most prestigious restaurants in Sydney, and became an awarded and highly regarded chef and restaurateur in his own right. His potent mix of proud heritage, technical skill, and boundless enthusiasm coupled with a vast appetite for the new and the colorful make Dan's approach to cooking unique. His recipes and stories mirror his personality: energetic, intelligent, and instantly memorable. Includes dual measures.
