Inspired by Japanese Kaiseki-ryori cuisine, author and chef, Anderson Ho believes in a simple approach, using the freshest produce to create complex tastes, textures and colours. Based in Singapore, Anderson - best known for his New Asian approach to food which marries Eastern and Western cooking techniques and interplays diverse ingredients - had travelled extensively for competitions and events overseas and had taken the opportunity to exchange ideas with foreign chefs and to experience the wide range of cuisines of the places that he visited.
Always eager to offer an alternative slant to existing dishes, he has a penchant for reinterpreting recipes in order to present unlikely yet compatible inter-marriages of Eastern and Western ingredients.
