Ken Hom's Asian Flavours

Ken Hom's Asian Flavours
Ken Hom OBE is the man who showed the British how to cook Asian food. A leading authority on Chinese cuisine, he is one of the most respected and celebrated TV chefs of all time. His phenomenal success is easily measured. He is the author of almost 40 books, which have inspired millions of home cooks around the world. In Britain alone, the Ken Hom wok is found in one in seven kitchens. Ken Hom, who resides in France and in Thailand but travels tirelessly all over the world, continues to appear regularly as a celebrity chef, write new books and keep involvement with restaurants worldwide. He has presented seven UK television series launching his career over 35 years ago with Ken Hom’s Chinese Cookery. His most recent book is his autobiography ‘My Stir Fried Life’ – published in English and Chinese and available from Amazon, a high-spirited, life-enriching feast where the chopsticks never stock clattering, the platters are always abundant, and dreams – no matter how ridiculously unbelievable – can and do come true.

He is a founding patron of the Oxford Cultural Collective, an independent cultural Institute that promotes better understanding of food and drink. The Collective has links to Oxford Brookes University through its foundation, formed to provide students with an outstanding learning experience.

A great charity supporter, his two main charities are Action Against Hunger and Prostate Cancer UK.

Ken Hom is culinary royalty and brings our Festival to a phenomenal end. He will be cooking fantastic dishes in our master kitchen followed by an insightful Q and A session and book signing.
