MasterChef UK Contestant, Chef Zaleha Olpin Shares Her Recipes!
Ever heard of “Rendangate”? How about “crispy rendang”? Well, a Malaysian Chef who participated in MasterChef UK Season 14 was eliminated from the TV Show after judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode criticised her chicken rendang for not being crispy! The event caused such an uproar that even our opposing party leaders (at the time) Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad united in their defense for her. The kerfuffle was soon dubbed the “Rendangate” incident. Fortunately, Chef Zaleha has put “Rendangate” firmly behind her and continues to cook in Britain and Malaysia. She has also just released a cookbook called ‘My Rendang Isn’t Crispy’. Meet her this Sunday, 4th August 2019, 3pm-5pm at Borders, The Curve as she shares her favourite family recipes. She will also be doing a book signing! See you guys there!
