Airbnb recently unveiled a new curated collection of Online Cooking Experiences hosted by Michelin-starred and world-renowned chefs. This new collection of Cooking Experiences provides a peek behind the counter at the unique recipes and techniques of top-rated chefs — and guidance to whip-up a gastronomic storm in your very own kitchen.
The collection celebrates the hidden diversity in Southeast Asia with Secrets of a Michelin-starred Chef, an Online Experience hosted by Chef Malcolm Lee of Candlenut, the world’s first Michelin-starred Peranakan restaurant. For Malaysians looking to embrace their Peranakan heritage or simply learn how to make a new dish, Chef Malcolm’s Online Experience will introduce a family recipe handed down through the generations.
“Connecting with people through food is my passion as a chef, so I am delighted to have the opportunity to share my passion with a global audience through Airbnb Online Experiences,” said Chef Malcolm Lee. “I am looking forward to giving guests from all over the world the chance to discover and learn more about Peranakan cuisine in the comfort of their own homes.”
Chef Malcolm Lee joins other award-winning chefs around the world offering a new curated collection of Online Cooking Experiences, including David Chang (of Momofuku Restaurant Group), Marc Favier (Marcore in Paris, France), Christina Bowerman (of Glass Hostaria in Rome, Italy) and more, who are set to provide guests with a sneak peek behind the counter with their unique recipes and techniques. The global Online Cooking Experiences collection also features a diverse array of culinary experiences hosted by Take A Chef.
“Airbnb Online Experiences have quickly evolved to be one of our guests’ favourite ways to ‘travel the world’ virtually,” said Parin Mehta, Director (Asia-Pacific), Airbnb Experiences. “With the launch of Online Cooking Experiences, we are looking forward not only to connect top chefs with our global community of guests but also to showcase the best culinary culture to the world as well as to support the tourism recovery in the post-COVID-19 world.”
Guests can now gain unique access to Michelin-starred and top-rated chefs from their very own kitchen. Other Online Cooking Experiences include:
