National Arboretum Canberra | The Master and Apprentices
Good Food Month chef Adam Liaw is such a fan of chef Liew’s cooking that he asked him to be a guest on his television show. That’s the sort of impact chef Cheong Liew OAM has had on Australia’s best chefs.
You’re invited to join this legendary chef and culinary educator or one night only at National Arboretum Canberra by Ginger Catering. Chef Liew had a huge impact on Chinese cuisine in Australia, having played a seminal role in challenging Australian tastes by unapologetically using authentic ingredients in his restaurants and schools.
Chef Liew has been honoured as one of the ten hottest chefs alive by the prestigious American Food & Wine Magazine, and inducted into the Hall of Fame in the World Food Media Awards. He was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in the 1999 Queen’s Birthday Honours “for service to the food and restaurant industry through involvement in developing and influencing the style of contemporary Australian cuisine.”
Janet Jeffs, Executive Chef and Director of Ginger Catering was Cheong’s apprentice from 1978 to 1981 at Neddy’s Restaurant, Adelaide, where the legend began. Join us for this one-off spectacular night to celebrate the mastery of Cheong’s incredible cooking through an evening of canapes and a four-course dinner with matched wines.
