As you know, Sunway collaborated with FOX Life Asia as the official premiere destination for the upcoming culinary series, Celebrity Chef: East vs West that features two celebrity chef heartthrobs, Nicholas Tse and David Rocco. The production of the series took place all around Asia and even, Malaysia!
If you’ve read the news or have seen videos on social media, you’ll know that the duo made a pit stop at The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat, Ipoh, Sunway City and Sunway Velocity. Sunway hosted the celebrity chefs as they took on each other in a fiery cooking competition.
From Ipoh, the chefs were brought to Kuala Lumpur for a special appearance at Sunway Velocity Mall! How many of you managed to catch a glimpse of them? Hundreds of people thronged their way through the mall to get a glance of the duo as they were being interviewed on stage before bantering the crowd and sampling local Peranakan food at the public event.
The next day, the chefs arrived in style at Sunway City. Their first shooting destination started off at Sunway University whereby shootings were done along the corridors of the university. Bobby Chin, an international celebrity chef made a special appearance too that made the crowd go wild. Students glanced through corridors, shouting out to their favorite chefs while snapping multiple shots of them till the shoot ended.
It was almost time for the second cooking challenge. Day 5 started off with the chefs running through the doors of Cold Storage Sunway Pyramid. The chefs raced the aisles of Cold Storage, Sunway Pyramid to purchase ingredients for the second cooking challenge. Their next cooking challenge was held in the kitchens of the Sunway University School of Culinary Arts. Minutes and hours passed, and the chefs were finally ready to present and serve their dishes at the Sunway Hotel Resort and Spa to dinner attendees.
The event ended on a high note. The opportunity to work together with world renowned experts and creative cooks was truly inspirational.
