Culinary Culture Clash,
A 6-hands Dinner

Date: Friday, 23 September 2022
Venue: The Gulai House, The Datai Langkawi

Chef Prateek Sadhu - Mumbai, India
Chef Darren Teoh - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Chef Chai Chun Boon - Langkawi, Malaysia

Three Asian chefs; three diverse cultural upbringings; six hands in the kitchen; six finger-licking dishes; all served family style at The Gulai House on one starry night. 

Welcome to the great Culinary Culture Clash, where chefs Prateek Sadhu, Darren Teoh and Chai Chun Boon join forces in the kitchen, each cooking two dishes inspired by their culinary heritage and taste memory.

Kashmir-born chef Prateek is known for his innovative yet elegant twists on traditional Indian cuisine. From childhood, chef Prateek’s connection to his cultural heritage centred around the kitchen, first on his aunt’s farm where ingredients were cooked as soon as they were harvested, and later in Delhi where his mother’s Kashmiri home cooking inspired his life’s vocation.

Born and raised in Sarawak, The Dining Room’s reigning senior chef de cuisine Chai Chun Boon firmly believes that good food is an emotional experience. He draws inspiration from his maternal grandmother’s cooking and his Sarawakian Heritage, bringing comfort flavours onto modern plates.

Chef Darren Teoh, head chef of lauded Kuala Lumpur fine dining restaurant Dewakan, completes the trifecta of this Culinary Culture Clash. Bridging together two cultures: Keralan Malayali origins on one side of the family and Hokkien Chinese on the other, chef Darren brings careful thought to his reinterpretations of modern Peninsular Malaysian cuisine. He is also a strong proponent of truly local ingredients endemic to Malaysia.
