Chef Fazley began his culinary career at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and later gained fame as a chef when he won MasterChef Celebrity Malaysia in 2012. But fame isn’t new to the dapper and stylish maestro – he was a singer and actor during his younger years. With awards like the Most Distinguished Le Cordon Bleu Alumni (Paris) and the Golden Chef Award at the Malaysia International Gastronomy Awards 2018 as a feather on his cap, Chef Fazley’s kitchen creations are as noteworthy as the love songs he used to croon.

“I’m very honoured and proud to be given the chance to collaborate with Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur and to create & curate Sajian Nusantara (Taste of Nusantara),” Chef Fazley says. “It is a real golden opportunity for me to present my personal childhood favourites to the guest at Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur.”

Among the mouth-watering dishes on offer include Chef Fazley’s favourite dish the Dulang Nusantara — a communal meal shared between three to four people. Created to eat with bare hands, the meal is made of rice in the middle, surrounded by condiments and gravies coming from Negeri Sembilan such as the rendang, chicken pop, smoked duck, potato cutlets, fresh herbs and dried fish, it’s something that will surely whet one’s appetite.
