Lennard Yeong on kitchen disasters, MasterChef Asia, and the cookbooks on his top shelf
The first dish I ever made... was vegetable soup — with ketchup.
The cookbooks on my top shelf are... Heston Blumenthal's Heston at Home and Alex Talbot & Aki Kamozawa's Ideas in Food.
Cooking is... a way of expressing love for the people you care about.
I joined MasterChef Asia because... I was curious about what it was like to be on a cooking competition.
My strategy for surviving MasterChef Asia is... run from the minute the cooking starts.
The MasterChef contestant I have the most respect for is... All of them, everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses.
Instagram has been... the main reason why my cooking has improved over the last two years.
Chefs I follow on Instagram include... Eric Ripert @ericripert
In the kitchen, my Achilles heels is... pastry.
The worst kitchen disaster I've encountered is... setting fire to my toaster.
The worst advice I've received about cooking is... that I should try making croissants at home.
My kitchen essentials are... a thermometer and heat-resistant spatula.
I have a real instinct for... spotting things that don't look right on the plate.
My guilty pleasure is... seaweed snacks. I love them.
Catch Lennard Yeong as he cooks up a storm on MasterChef Asia when it kicks off at 9pm tonight. MasterChef Asia will air on Lifetime (StarHub TV Channel 514) at 9pm every Thursday.
