Reality Bites : Exclusive Preview (An Original AFC Production)

Eve blessed me with invites to the exclusive preview of Reality Bites, a reality show accounting the ups and downs of Malaysian celebrity chefs Johnny Fua and Sherson Lian as they manage the fine dining kitchen of Elegantology Gallery & Restaurant. It's a tough environment to work in. Elegantology is owned by esteemed fashion designer Beatrice Looi, setting the standards high.

Great Dinners Of The World Event 2012
Remember AFC's Great Dinners of the World? That's where I first knew of these chefs. I later met them at an event organised for fans.

Anyway, check out photos of my 20th November evening at the event (below).

A variety of delicious finger food was served. I was humoured the moment the waitress attempted to share the name of the dish with us. It was such a mouthful. I wondered at that moment if I should have brought a tape recorder along. I couldn't possibly remember any of it!

I miss the days when food were just simply labeled "sweet and sour sausage" instead of "sausage a l'orange seasoned with a pinch of fleur de sel and black peppe--eur " <-- I am totally making this up to illustrate a point. 

We were then introduced to citrusy Martell cocktails which tasted really good. The name was as challenging. I shall not mention it. Martell is a patron of Elegantology, lending more sophistication to what I already call a very high class restaurant.

I left the event learning a thing or two about presentation. The show? Watch it and judge for yourselves.

Reality Bites airs this 10th December on the Asian Food Channel (AFC). Who's as excited as I am? Oh, who am I kidding. My enthusiasm for cooking shows (any) is forevermore ~ looking forward to the drama!

  1. I am so with you. Now they may as well label everything with each ingredient. No surprises anymore! Have fun watching, Sharon!

    1. Thank you, Abbe. Some of the recipes are really hard to pronounce ^.^
