Amongst the many questions on food that people ask me, I find it most difficult to answer this particular one and that is, what does food mean to you? It may seem like a harmless question but as I start to answer, there’s always a moment of pause, when the mind’s racing through countless emotions, thoughts, and experiences. Somehow I am always at a loss of words to express how dearly I feel for food, which is also so personal.
When we met up with Andre Chiang, Chef & Owner of Restaurant ANDRE, Singapore, also ranked number 37 in World’s 50 Best Restaurants, and asked him the same question, he answered immediately, “food is my life, it’s what I do.” Simple and straight forward. Well, that is him, who makes simplicity look so good.
