That is fantastic, Chef! Your food styling is absolutely breathtaking and you make everything look like a culinary work of art. You have really taken your food to the next level and your video was fantastic in that it showed off your talent perfectly. Ever think of getting on one of the Food Network shows as a contestant? I see the Food Network Star is going to start casting again in October.. DO IT!!! Thanks for sharing!

Your video is a feast for the eyes. Beautifully presented! I could only guess at the luscious flavors represented on film!

Thanks for the compliments really appreciated .... and BellesAZ i do firmly believe my job is more of Art than just production of something to eat . I always strive to go the extra mile , and have this wow effect in presentation and flavors. Something that a lot of my colleagues have actually forgotten. LOL on the Food Network ... that would be funny but at the moment I am still in Myanmar ... but maybe something to think about ... Once again .... THANKS for the compliments , really highly appreciated . Best Chris

I finally decided at 40 what I wanted to do when I grow up. I thought when my kids got out of school I'd go back to culinary school after having been self-employed for over 25 years. That doesn't look like it's going to happen as it now seems that both of my kids will be in college and law school simultaneously. So I will continue to take cooking classes that interest me and cook wonderful meals for my family and friends. Your video was amazing. The food presentations were spectacular. As I sit at my desk at work (obviously NOT working) I'm starving now. Thanks for sharing your work with those of us who love to cook at home.

@ LCook, well to be honest it is never to late to start something , my mother decided after a great career as businesswoman to go back to Uni at the age of 39 and study medicine and specialize on reconstructive surgery ... so nothing should stop you , I remember one of the students at Le Cordon Bleu started at age 45 is now one of the most renowned Pastry Chefs ... If you feel like doing it DO IT ! Otherwise you will regret one day ...and that would be a shame ... Thanks for the compliment. :)

Thanks for the feedback. I would love to do it; however, having both of my kids in college at the same time may be financially prohibitive. I may just have to wait a few years. That's amazing that your mother went back to medical school. Good for her!

About Me
I am a professional Executive Chef and since over 2 decades in the food industry. I run a successful Hospitality Consulting Business and decided a few years ago that I enjoy living in Asia and moved here for good. At the moment I am in beautiful Mandalay and I am happy I did not listen to all the negative propaganda that is spread about this country. I am a strong advocate to get people here to come and visit this Beautiful country , and I am sure you will be as enchanted by its beauty and the beauty of its people.
My favorite things to cook
I love Asian Fusion , but being trained at Cordon Bleu I have still a strong connection to the French cuisine . i enjoy fresh and seasonal ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well my Grandmother used to be a pastry chef, so I love to do all the good french pastries.
My cooking triumphs
2 Michelin Stars , but to be honest I never would like to get them again. It wears you out to always chase the stars.
My cooking tragedies
LOL I am sure there are 10000000 over my career , so good advise , never give up , and you are only judged by the last meal ... so if you mess up one , the next one can make up for the one that was off
