What a Great Time! I had a Taste of Martin Yan’s Cooking!
Chef Martin Yan was in Malaysia recently upon his appointment as the brand ambassador for GE Monogram. I had a great food adventure watching the international celebrity chef in a live cooking demonstration which was held in collaboration with General Electric and Kollektion Distribution Sdn Bhd at Starhill Kuala Lumpur.
The event was presented exclusively for YTL Platinum Plus members and the media.
Martin Yan, the familiar face on TV that all of us grew up with
Chef Martin Yan pioneered among others the classic daily Chinese cooking show ‘Yan Can Cook’ and has hosted over 3,000 shows broadcast worldwide. He has written thirty cookbooks, including the award-winning Martin Yan’s Feast, Martin Yan’s Asian Favorites, Chinese Cooking for Dummies, Martin Yan’s Chinatown Cooking (intro by Julia Child), Martin Yan’s Quick & Easy, and his latest, Martin Yan’s China (a cookbook that documents his travels and culinary discoveries throughout the far reaches of China.
Chef Martin Yan started off the demonstration with his friendly and hilarious introduction. The chef in person is exactly the same from the television personality that we grew up knowing. It was fun watching him whipping up several dishes, starting with the preparation of ingredients and at the same time demonstrating his cutting skills.

The audience had the opportunity to taste the dishes that the chef whipped out.
In between the demo, the celebrity chef introduces the GE Monogram kitchen appliances such as cooker hood, hobs, and ovens. All these new appliances were designed to provide solid performance at an affordable price.
Mr Vincent Chew, the Group Executive Director of Kollektion Distribution Sdn Bhd (member of the Pensonic Holdings Berhad) was on hand to pick the lucky winners for Chef Martin Yan’s China cookbook.
The chef presented the books to the winners, followed by an autography and photography session.
I enjoyed the cooking demonstration and seeing Chef Martin Yan in person!
