Wanitha Tanasingam was born to cook! Her father was the Head Chef for the Kedah Royal Family in Malaysia. Some of her earliest memories are of being propped up on a stool, learning the difference between sour, bitter, salty and sweet!
Growing up in Penang, Wanitha then moved to Australia in 1982, started a restaurant and founded a cooking school.
Her passion and enthusiasm for food and cooking soon saw her appearing at public events, leading to invitations to appear on morning television and cable TV as a regular Asian chef.
Food is togetherness, creating deep connections between people, place and soil, linking the globe across time and culture. Cooking is history. Every dish tells a story.
