Culi­nary siz­zlers

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food - with Belinda Cipri­ano

STRAIGHT out of the kitchen and on to the stage, for­mer My Kitchen Rules con­tes­tants Eva Lean and De­bra Ch’ng are set to siz­zle as part of this year’s Good Food and Wine Show.

The dy­namic duo that placed third dur­ing the sixth sea­son of the show has rekin­dled a de­sire to fol­low their dreams and share their cul­ture and love of food with oth­ers. Food­ies en­joyed a taste of what can be ex­pected at this year’s show, fol­low­ing a demon­stra­tion at Su­bi­aco’s The Vil­lage Bar on Thurs­day.

They will be ap­pear­ing with a host of other culi­nary hotshots in­clud­ing Miguel Maestre, Ge­orge Calom­baris and Alastair McLeod.

Lean said she and Ch’ng were happy to be tak­ing part in this year’s Good Food and Wine Show.

In­flu­enced by their back­grounds, the pair said they were for­tu­nate enough to have great cooks in their fam­i­lies, in­clud­ing their par­ents and grand­par­ents, who had inspired them.

“Food is like a sec­ond lan­guage in my fam­ily,” Ch’ng said. “It is the be­gin­ning, mid­dle and end to all con­ver­sa­tions.”

“From a young age, I have been ex­posed to both Western and Asian cook­ing styles, es­pe­cially Sin­ga­porean and Malaysian food.

“My dad is a phe­nom­e­nal cook, as well as my grandma, but they are also my in­spi­ra­tion and they have all taught me to find the joy and love in cook­ing.”

The three-day ex­hi­bi­tion will show­case food prod­ucts and in­clude demon­stra­tions from celebrity chefs, plus fea­ture wine and beer ap­pre­ci­a­tion cour­ses.

The 2015 Perth Good Food and Wine Show is at the Perth En­ter­tain­ment and Con­ven­tion Cen­tre from this Fri­day, July 10 to 12. Visit www.good­food­
