Whilst in Penang recently, I had the privilege and pleasure of meeting Michael Saxon on behalf of A Luxury Travel Blog. Mike is the General Manager of the Eastern & Oriental Hotel. His career spans over 30 years in the industry in several countries – first as a trainee chef in Yorkshire to his current position as the top man of one of Asia’s most prestigious hotels. He has a blog called Michael Saxon’s Musings (which I’ve added to my blogroll).
Mike has recently offered a completely free question-and-answer service on his blog, so if you’re a budding cook or chef and you have a question about cooking, Mike’s your man. Mike says:
I would like to share my knowledge to anyone who would like to learn basic cooking skills so that they can learn how to cook gourmet meals themselves at home. Nothing would give me more pleasure than to inspire but one person to cook themselves or their loved ones a home cooked meal.
So, what are you waiting for? If you’ve been bamboozled by batter, stymied by steak, or perplexed by pastry, worry no more! Mike is ready and waiting to help you.
