Join the session as Khir Johari explores the essence of Malay cuisine in Singapore, where it transcends mere sustenance to become a cultural practice intricately tied to identity. Meanwhile, Ros Rotanak, famously known as Chef Nak, embarks on a mission to preserve and revive the ancient Khmer culinary traditions, with a history spanning thousands of years. Get ready to meet our culinary champions, individuals passionately dedicated to preserving cultural knowledge and heritage in today’s ever-evolving world. They’ll engage in a lively conversation moderated by Sonia Nair.

Bergabunglah dengan sesi ini sembari Khir Johari mengkaji soal esensi hidangan Malay di Singapura, dimana bentuk hidangan ini telah melampaui kebutuhan mendasar untuk bertahan hidup untuk menjadi sebuah praktik budaya yang secara rumit terkait dengan identitas. Sementara itu, Ros Rotanak, yang dikenal sebagai Chef Nak, menapaki sebuah misi melestarikan dan membangkitkan kembali tradisi hidangan Khmer, dengan sejarah melintasi ribuan tahun. Bersiaplah bertemu dengan para juara kuliner kami, individu yang secara sungguh-sungguh membaktikan diri untuk melestarikan pengetahuan dan warisan budaya dalam dunia saat ini yang senatiasa berubah. Mereka akan terlibat sebuah obrolan yang hidup, dipandu oleh Sonia Nair.
