Exclusive new series: What chefs cook at home, featuring Malcolm GohPhotos By Art Chen Malcolm Goh has just come off a surgical procedure, but when I meet him, he is all smiles and says, No lah, Im fine! to my anxious queries about the state of his health. It is this affable quality that has endeared Goh to Malaysians, who first saw him on television on Asian Food Channel (AFC) shows like Great Dinners of the World and Back to the Streets. It is interesting that Gohs foray into the F&B industry didnt happen organically. After he flunked his O-Levels, his mother took him to a local college and enrolled him in a culinary arts course. He promptly failed his first two semesters, before deciding to just buck up and get on with it. My whole journey has been me forcing myself to learn and get skills because Im not a natural prodigy I didnt know anything about cooking until I went to college when I was 16. Now I feel that cooking has helped me learn that its very fulfilling when people enjoy your food, he says. These days, youll find Goh helming the kitchen of Define: Food, a popular restaurant in Mid Valley City that serves up all sorts of delicious Western-influenced comfort food.
