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 kick ass chef, sneakerhead and cookbook collector Dan Hong, who has worked at some of Sydney’s best restaurants. His limitless enthusiasm and love of fast food and fine dining will not disappoint in this unique collection of his favourite recipes.
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.
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.
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.
MR HONG will be released 1 October, 2014 and is available for pre-order today from Bookworld
