Chef Brian is an Irish Chef who travels in different Asian countries particularly Thailand and Philippines.
The seminar started with talk and open forum where each participant was given the chance of asking one burning questions of their mind. Several questions like “What is your focus?” (Foods, cooking or experience), “What else you do there?”, and “What actually you want?” were some of questions tackled in the seminar. Aside from learning in schools about foods, cooking, techniques in cooking and different cultures, experience is one good teacher. “You can’t teach somebody to handle pressure”, Chef added.
