Humans of SOVS: Brian Cheng

It was from watching shows like Masterchef, Iron chef and My Kitchen Rules that set me on the track to becoming a foodie. I don’t cook but I do appreciate the skills you need to have to be a good chef. The place doesn’t have to be fancy either. You can find amazing food from takeaway restaurants or street food. Not spending as much can also be a good thing for managing your expectations. Bad food becomes a greater disappointment when you paid too much for it!
