Last Monday, I had the privilege not only to meet up with Chef Emmanuel Stroobant, but also tasted his cooking. Widely known as the “Chef in Black”, Chef Emmanuel Stroobant returns to Asian Food Channel and shows you how he lives, eats and enjoys his life to the fullest! Named as “36 Ways to Live!“, this new and exciting AFC Original Production will have Chef Emmanuel invite his closest VIP friends and media personalities to a fully equipped SignatureKitchen showroom in Kota Damansara, Selangor and whips up 36 of the most important life recipes that have marked his life journey. Besides preparing delicious dishes, you also get an intimate peek into Chef Stroobant’s life as he takes you behind the scenes, into the kitchens of his successful restaurants, on a picnic trip and even, a yoga session with his staff!

In the media launch, I get to witness myself how Chef Emmanuel prepared Pan Fried Foie Gras with Caramelized Apples. I was totally amazed by his skills, techniques and  personality! After tasting the tantalizing dish, members of the media also had the opportunity to watch the first episode of 36 Ways to Live.
