Dan Hong is one of Australia’s most acclaimed chefs. Known for his appetite for rare sneakers, hip hop and cookbook collection, he is the inspiration behind several of the country’s most dynamic restaurants, including Sydney’s Mr Wong, Ms G’s and El Loco.
Growing up in the suburbs of Sydney with a family of foodies, Hong’s mother went on to own a Vietnamese restaurant by chance. Now, with a potent combination of proud heritage, technical skills and enthusiasm for experimenting with unique flavours, comes Mr Hong
Complete with 100 punchy recipes, including Vietnamese, Chinese and Mexican, the unique recipes are just as colourful and flavoursome as the book itself – which is full of colourful photographs, illustrations, and a shoelace bookmark that pays homage to Hong’s sneaker obsession.
So if you consider yourself a bit of a flavour renegade, then Mr Hong
is for you. Feast your eyes on a banquet of recipes, including poached chicken, jellyfish and pig’s ear salad, drunken chicken, and Sichuan steak tartare. There is even something for you sweet tooths, with Hong’s Stoner’s Delight recipe, which consists of mars bar slice, potato chip praline, candied bacon, mars bar slice, peanut butter dulce de leche, raspberry sauce and banana fritters (we can hear your stomach grumbling already).
