Are you looking for something to spice up your kitchen? We’ve got you covered. While we can’t stop raving about their delectable cuisine, there is no arguing that these swoon-worthy hot chefs are heating things up way beyond the kitchen. I know life in the kitchen can heat up quick, but as if it weren’t enough, they make it even hotter. There is something inherently cool in a man who can cook, and these apples to my eye are living proof! A feast to the eye and stomach! Bon Appetit!
The first entry to our inaugural list of hot chefs is none other than Chef Adu! You have probably seen him as the judge and mentor in MasterChef Malaysia, or in his true to the heart cook book. However, the celebrity chef is on the list for a variety of reasons other than that. Of course, we can’t discredit his flair for creative Malay-Asian cuisine, unique palate for unlikely combinations, and an excellent eye for detail.
His artistic soul that continually gets the better of him is something that captures our attention. The way he proudly expresses his unique insight and feels about himself in his art and cuisine just melts our hearts.
Nik Michael Imran
Well, what about him? Chef Nik has a knack for cooking, that’s for sure. He has a way about him that endears him into the hearts and stomachs of Malaysians. His smile paints a ray of sunshine while his vibrant creations satisfy the palette.
He is determined to push the boundaries of Malaysian cuisine, spread happiness and create unity through the power of Malaysian food. His food? It speaks a different language, definitely beyond his engaging personality and amiable looks. One thing is for sure, not many hot chefs can be as talented in the kitchen and carry a great sense of humour at the same time!
Which is better? A man who can cook or a man who cooks with his mother? Why choose when Sherson Lian can do both. While some people would avoid the scrutiny of cooking with their mom, the Malaysian celebrity chef proudly does it on TV.
He has what it takes to be a chef: a positive outlook on life, a persevering soul, the willingness to learn, the determination to pursue his dreams and most of all, a love for food. With the unconditional support from his family, the man of faith has courage to dream big and is as inspiring as each success he has achieved.
From Malaysia to France, Datuk Fazley has made a mark in the culinary industry. Although he wears many hats including that of husband, singer, actor, motivator, and author, the chefs hat is his cherry on top. Born and raised with clear sights set on the entertainment industry, he is living proof that anyone can be a chef if they have the passion for the food they cook. Not to mention, he is one of the very few hot chefs with an enviably long list of achievements to boot.
A new chapter of his career opened up when he won first place in the MasterChef Celebrity Malaysia and the rest is history. After completing his final semester in Paris, he is now an ambassador of Le Cordon Bleu and an owner of his culinary establishments. With him, it is safe to say we can expect greater things to come!
The American–Japanese chef is creating a culinary playground for our dining table at Babe, Malaysia’s first ever restaurant by a Michelin starred chef. He beguiles gourmands with his novel creations that engage and evoke emotions through his flavours, textures and… plating. And, of course, his impossibly good looks that is worthy of every hot chef list out there.
His charm lies in the way he reaches people’s heart through his modernist approach to food. Although the practice may come across as intimidating, he elicits an emotional connection by somehow invoking a warm, fuzzy feeling of a childhood nostalgia when you see and eat his food. It’s finesse of art and science at its best.
The man behind modern Chinese cuisine is busier than ever. He has been living the dream life; receiving numerous awards, cooking for Singapore’s founding father Lee Kuan Yew, becoming an author of his own cookbooks, traveling the world, making appearances on television shows, owning restaurants and being an instructor at his cooking schools. Phew! That is certainly a long list.
His heart being as big and broad as his achievements, he humbly aspires to teach, guide and share his experiences with the younger generation on the not-so-glamorous life of a chef. That, to me, is why he’s the best seller cake on the counter.
Cooking knows no age. He may be young, but he has carved his name in the culinary industry. How? It was the passion of the 22-year-old man that led him to be crowned as the winner of the first MasterChef Malaysia All-Stars competition. However, things have not always been easy for him.
Despite his parent’s initial wishes for him to be in the engineering field, his persistence to follow his dream in the culinary industry came up roses when he proved his ability to excel in the industry. Today, he is a front-runner in the industry and someone we should watch out. The sky is the limit for this young chef.
