Who is Chef Wan?

   Most of people around the world do know about Chef Wan as he is the food ambassador of Malaysia. Everyone knows him as Chef Wan and his real name is Redzuawan Bin Ismail. Chef Wan was been conferred as a Datuk by Acting Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah, in celebration of the Federal Territory Day in 1st February 2009. In 1958, he was born in Singapore.

He is the eldest son in the family from seven children.  He had become an inspired to other chef out there as he got many awards in his life. Besides that, cooking and his life cannot be separate off. It had become a part of his life since he was in young age. Accountant, professional chef, food ambassador of Malaysia, resident chef to the Asian Food Channel, food critic and Malaysian Magazine Writer, cookbook author, actor and entrepreneur had become a career of Chef Wan. Nevertheless, he had made a decision to focus more on cooking career as his interest is more on cooking.

Since he was small, cooking is one of his major interests. And naturally coming from a big family like that, they are always surrounded with food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, and he as the eldest, he said:

“I’m supposed to try to help mum prepare breakfast for my younger brothers and all. And naturally I try to be a bit more creative; a bit more fun. And in later years I started gardening because I love gardening and was surrounded by vegetables and all that and all that and I say ah what I do with all this stuff in my garden? Cooking!”
     In a young age, he does help his mother a lot in cooking and gardening. Involved in activity like that does encourage him to be more creative and good thinking on the food designing. Thus, when he helps his mother in the kitchen, he tried to demonstrate the food into a new design and taste with the ingredient that already have in the kitchen. Instead of that, he learned cooking from his mother and during that time, his father was in the air force.
     Hence, when his father comes back, it does surprise his father because his eldest son interest in cooking. But day by day, his parents do support with his interest and now he had become the Food Ambassador of Malaysia. Indeed, his parents feel proud with him.
