What I have been doing over the years
This is a short list of some of my work as a chef. I have authored a few books, appeared on television cook shows, cooked up a storm at hotels as a celebrity chef for Cristang cuisine promotions, and have done several cooking exhibitions and demonstrations. If you need a complete resume please contact me. Nowadays my culinary skills have expanded beyond Cristang cuisine into creative cooking by creating new Cristang recipes.

This is from the Pasar Malam Besar's website, "The Pasar Malam Besar in The Hague is the biggest Eurasian fair in the world. The event is a sensually stimulating blend of cultural festival, exhibition and food fest rolled into one, held in an archipelago of tents and stands. There are 5 theatres on the Pasar site. The large Bintang Theatre (seats approx. 600) is where the big names in music and dance perform. The Tong Tong Podium is used mainly for acoustic sets and dance. In the Culinary Theatre ('Kooktheater') master chefs demonstrate how to prepare both difficult and easy dishes from various Asian cuisines. We have had the pleasure of welcoming guest chefs and cooks here from Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and Singapore in recent years. The intimate Bibit Theatre presents lectures, interviews and theatrical performances: mostly in Dutch, but increasingly in English too. In the Bengkel (studio) you are welcome to participate in all kinds of workshops: in music, dance, art, cooking and lots more".

I have been invited to the Culinary Theatre since 2000, for almost every year.
