Local Cuisine, healthy cooking and nutrition
Personal Chef Shen Tan ditched her corporate suit (former Events Director from Forbes) for a hawker’s apron at Maxwell Food Centre with Madam Tan’s Nasi Lemak. She earned her cooking stripes with her award winning (Makansutra, Business Times CEO Hawker Guide) nasi lemak – a traditional Malay rice dish that is synonymous with the culinary heritage of Singapore and Malaysia.
Chef Shen then expanded her repertoire at The Wok & Barrel to create exciting Mod-Sin dishes like Lamb Char Siew, Ba Chor Mee Pasta, Shendol, Fish Curry Pasta and her signature Beef Rendang Pizza. With her return to the culinary world with Ujong at Raffles Hotel, Chef Shen created Mod Sin (Modern Singaporean) dishes like Hae Bee Hiam Mentaiko Capellini and Claypot Rice with Five Spice Pork.
Chef Shen loves South East Asian spices and herbs as well as coconut milk and coconut cream and continues her culinary adventures while exploring Singaporean flavours and healthy cooking and nutrition. She continues to delight with her mod sin innovations like Nasi Lemak Sushi, Ba Zhang Pie and Dark Chocolate Gula Melaka Caramel Tart.
