Is there anything Kwanghi Chan can’t do?! The Dublin-based chef and cookbook author owns two restaurants, a food truck, a retail sauce company, and regularly appears on TV. Born in Hong Kong, Kwanghi moved to Donegal when he was eight and grew up cooking in his uncle’s Chinese takeaway. As an adult, he chose a culinary education over art school and went on to work in a number of Michelin-starred restaurants before going out on his own. Kwanghi’s first book, Wok, came out last year and is the first Irish-Chinese cookbook to be published in Ireland.
We’re so excited to have Kwanghi Chan help us to kick off the second season of Dyed Green. On this episode, we speak with Kwanghi about his career trajectory, what Chinese food in Ireland is like, white people cooking Asian food, and the future of the food industry in the face of all of today’s challenges.
Dyed Green is a project of Bog & Thunder, whose mission is to highlight the best of Irish food and culture, through food tours, events, and media. Find out more at www.bogandthunder.com.
