Chef Jimmy Chaw
Fascinated by his mum’s specialties, cooking rubbed off on chef Chaw at a very early age. He seeks inspiration from the enthusiasm of roadside hawkers – skilled in their trade over many generations. With more than 16 years culinary experience, he says his best piece of advice is ‘love it, create it, cook it…otherwise it’s just a job’.
