Mr Hong - A Glimpse into the Mind of the Brilliant Chef Behind Mr Wong, El Loco and Ms G's
Eat like you never have before, with Dan Hong at the reins it will be an enjoyable ride. Dan's appetite for rare sneakers, hip-hop and collecting cookbooks is only surpassed by his passion for food: everything from fast food to fine dining. Growing up in the suburbs of Sydney with a food-obsessed family and a mother who fell into owning a Vietnamese restaurant by chance, Dan has gone on to become a critically acclaimed chef, working at some of the most prestigious restaurants in Australia, including Sydney's Mr Wong, Ms G's and El Loco. Dan's potent mix of proud heritage, technical skill and boundless enthusiasm for experimenting with big, bold, fresh flavours makes his approach to food truly unique. Mr Hong is as much an exploration of Dan's colourful path through life as it is a beautifully illustrated book of one hundred scintillating recipes - Vietnamese, Chinese, Mexican, as well as fusions of the three - re-imagined and re-invigorated for a new generation of food obsessives. Feast your eyes and dig in.
Dan Hong has worked in some of the most prestigious restaurants in Australia, including Tetsuya's, Marque and Bentley, and his mentors include Mark Best, Brent Savage and Thomas Johns. He has opened some of Sydney's most exciting dining destinations, including Ms G's, El Loco and Mr Wong (honoured with a hat in its first year of business at the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide awards) and most recently Papi Chulo, a smokehouse and grill at Manly Wharf, Sydney.
