Master Chef Roy Wong & Ms Aemy Wong

When I received the call to be there for dinner with Chef Roy Wong at Kim Ma, I was left truly excited. It was a dinner that we had planned and was not excuted due to each other’s busy schedule. Well my confession, I usually don’t get much to dine with fabulous Master Chef themselves except attending formal invited dinners and most of time there are not private. That Saturday evening it was a table only for the four of us, with my eating buddy Cleo Chia, Aemy Wong (sister of our famous local actress Aenie Wong), myself and Chef Roy who was in and out of the kitchen cooking for the restaurant customers and us.

Fresh Flown-in Boston Lobster

It was a fabulous evening and I was invited for a scrumptious dinner with such a panoroma view of Kuala Lumpur. When I was told that I was going to indulge fresh flown lobster with champagne, I was totally amazed. Dining at Cristallo can be very exciting, I was told it is new too. I like the modern chick deco, very inspiring white. On that night the place was filled with bottles of Bollinger Champagne from left to right and from back to front. Just fabulous. Having a poured glass of champange can be so exciting and yet full of pleasure.

La Dolce Vita with Castello Banfi at Tai Zi Heen Prince Hotel

Castello Banfi is a family owned vineyard estate and winery in the Brunello region of Tuscany. Together with its sister estates in Piedmont, Vigne Regali and Principessa Gavi, it has become recognized the world over for its dedication to excellence and sparking a renaissance in the art of Italian winemaking. The Mariani family proprietors credit education, dedication and discipline for the success that has accorded honors including:

11 Consecutive Years ~ Italy’s Premier Vineyard Estate at the VinItaly wine fair.

The first winery to be internationally recognized for exceptional environmental, ethical and social
responsibility (ISO 14001 and SA 8000) as well as an international leader in customer satisfaction (ISO 9001:2000).

Winery of the Year by both Wine Enthusiast and Wine & Spirits Magazine and Top Ten Wines (Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio all’Oro) by Wine Spectator.

Perhaps most gratifying of all is the praise of neighboring vintners who acknowledge Banfi’s role in pioneering a new era in Brunello and bringing the wine world’s attention to Montalcino. Banfi has pioneered clonal research on the Sangiovese vine to produce a more consistently excellent Brunello di Montalcino, and reduced sulfites and histamines through more organic winemaking. Technological advances, including customized cooperage for more balanced wines, nitrogen bottling to eliminate the addition of sulfites, electrodialysis to allow flavors to emerge, and development of fermenters that combine both stainless steel and wood, are balanced with a profound respect for tradition and deep expression of the local terroir
and microclimate. In the end, at Castello Banfi, winemaker and nature partner to allow the wine’s natural pedigree to emerge in artful expression.

Though savoring these achievements as they would a glass of their finest vintage, family proprietors Cristina Mariani May and James Mariani are hardly resting on their laurels. In the continual pursuit of superior quality ingrained in them by their fathers, Castello Banfi cofoundersand brothers John and Harry Mariani, they work constantly to improve upon every detail, from winemaking and packaging to the estate’s renowned hospitality.

The Marianis established Castello Banfi in 1978, assembling a contiguous estate of 7,100 acres (2,830 hectares). A constellation of single vineyards spreads out to cover only 1/3 of the property, starting with the undeniable concept that quality is determined first and foremost in the vineyard.

Salt & Peppered White Baits

“Chee Yim” or “Salt & Peppered” is a very delicious dish by itself. You can have it in prawn, squid, chicken, mantis prawn and even fish. Today I am introducing this dish with white baits. White baits are small fishes whereby all the bones are taken out before being cooked. As my good friend Sunny Yaw always say, easy and simple….lol!


400gm white baits (other white fish meat can be used too)
1 egg
a pinch salt
a pinch white pepper
1 teaspoon sesame oil

tapioca powder
oil for deep frying

3 tablespoon white wine
3 sliced green chilli padi
a pinch salt

Marinated fish baits with salt, white pepper, seame oil and set it aside.
Heat up deep frying oil
Coat fish baits with tapioca flour.
Deep fried them till light golden brown.
Heat up a clean wok.
Put all those deep fried fish baits on to the work.
Dashed in white wine.
Throw in green chilles and a salt.

I would recommend you to order this when you are dining at my restaurant as it had be come a favourite dish with my dinners.

Have a try yourself in your own kitchen too.

Yours Steven Cheng
