Andrew Wong, winner of Chinese Masterchef in the UK, appeared on Paul Hollywood’s Pies And Puds last Thursday to help Paul make a chicken chow mein pie, as well as demonstrating the ancient art of noodle-pulling. If that sounds delicious or bizarre to you, and you want to find out more, you can watch the program here. Andrew’s segment starts at 15:20.
After stints in kitchens across London, Andrew decided to travel around China, moving from kitchen to kitchen - from a noodle stand in Chengdu to the Millennium Hotel in Qingdoa. Upon returning to London, he opened restaurant A.WONG to rave reviews from the Evening Standard, Guardian, Independent and Times. Just nine months after opening, the restaurant's modern exploration of regional Chinese cuisine has already resulted in it being rated as one of the best Chinese restaurants in the UK by The Good Food Guide, as well as recently winning a coveted Bib Gourmand in the 2014 Michelin guide.
Andrew is currently working on his first book.
