Advice To Young Chefs
This week at Fine Dining Lovers we kicked things off by asking world-class chefs what advice they would give to young cooks.
We reached out to Gaston Acurio, Paul Qui, Andreas Caminada and Umberto Bombana, all of which had a wealth of information to share. Patience, history, focus and style were just some of the things they thought should be important to a young chef.
Breakfast in Penang
Penang, an island off the western coast of Malaysia, is one of the most fascinating places on earth. Eating there can be quite a treat so we rounded up our favorite breakfast foods that'll make your visit there all that more delicious.
Unlike the West, where we enjoy sweet breakfast treats, dining in Penang is all about indulging in savory foods. You can't miss eating roti canai, a crepe-like bread served with a spicy chicken curry, or nasi lemak, rice mixed with coconut cream and topped with savory condiments.
Here's a look at the rest of the breakfast snacks we love.
