About Wanitha

Wanitha Tanasingam was born to cook! Her father was the Head Chef for the Kedah Royal Family in Malaysia. Some of her earliest memories are of being propped up on a stool, learning the difference between sour, bitter, salty and sweet!

Growing up in Penang, Wanitha then moved to Australia in 1982, started a restaurant and founded a cooking school.

Her passion and enthusiasm for food and cooking soon saw her appearing at public events, leading to invitations to appear on morning television and cable TV as a regular Asian chef.

Food is togetherness, creating deep connections between people, place and soil, linking the globe across time and culture. Cooking is history. Every dish tells a story.
