Today, we’re about to share about this young chef who makes us proud with her ‘Pearl Of The Orient’ creation.
20-Year-Old Chef Makes Penang Proud
A 20-year-old young chef — Khor Kai Wern makes Penang proud with her “Pearl of the Orient” creation during the Battle of Global Chinese Chefs 2019 at M Mall, Penang. It was indeed a great achievement as Khor’s patisserie display that made out of sugar paste won her the gold medal in the sugar showpiece category. Congratulations, Khor!
The three-day competition was jointly organised by the Penang Chefs Association and the Penang Koo Soo Kwong Choon Tong Restaurant and Tea-house. During the competition, Khor astounded the judges with her “Pearl of the Orient” sugar showpiece featuring some of the famous street food and iconic landmarks in Penang.
Check Out The “Pearl of the Orient”
That’s right, you know it’s not a normal patisserie just by reading the name. The bottom tier depicted popular street food such as laksa, char koay teow, cendol and nyonya kuih. Followed by the mid-tier, which resembles the Goddess of Mercy Temple, one of Penang’s major landmarks. Last but not least, the iconic Penang Bridge was on the upper tier.
That’s not all, Khor said that it took her over a month to complete the patisserie as she needed to make pieces with different colours and wait for them to dry before proceeding to the next step. And yes, all her hard work paid off in the end!
The “Pearl of the Orient” patisserie looks amazing, isn’t it? If you love the “Pearl of the Orient” creation as well, do leave a comment below and tell us about it. Till next time, bye!
