Checkers Café, Dorsett Regency Kuala Lumpur: A Taste of Victory With Winning Gourmets By Master & Mizzy Chefs

Here’s to Local Talent in the Culinary Industry!

In conjunction with the Merdeka Day and Malaysia Day, Dorsett Regency Kuala Lumpur is proud to showcase a taste of award winning dishes by their Master & Mizzy Chefs at Checkers Café. From August 31st right through the month of September, guests will be able to savor these award winning chefs’ dishes at Checkers Café for lunch and dinner. In honor of promoting peace, harmony and unity with the public holidays, Dorsett Regency Kuala Lumpur is set on showcasing our very own nation’s local talents in the international culinary area.

Helmed by Yau Kok Kheong, Executive Chef, whom has earned himself international recognition and been invited as a judge to many culinary competitions worldwide, the gourmet local team consist of Chef Poon Zhi Zheng , Chef Faizal Wahid, Chef Gerad Jerome, Chef Umang Matius, Chef Norhakim Halkin, Chef Badrol Hisham and Chef Hilson Seow.

According to Yau, “To be good at what you are doing, you have to have passion and a striving spirit. And to be a great chef, you have to constantly push yourself to deliver quality food, to be creative, to be able to accept criticism and always sharpen your culinary skills.

It is also important that we are a team player because no one can work alone and like a musical orchestra, our role in the kitchen complements each other.

Nevertheless, my culinary team is made of different and very unique individuals. Regardless of their background, race and culture, when they come into the kitchen, they are recognised as chefs or cooks and they are expected to deliver nothing but quality food to our guests. Hence, I am proud to say that as a Malaysian, we are able to cook with one pot and serve from the same kitchen,” Yau concluded.
