The Gallivanting Cook loves to ask people along his food journey if they’ve eaten yet. Although a person’s belly may be full, Chef Vincent Lim says that doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve eaten.
Lim’s appetite for uncovering the soul of food has taken him all over the world. People tell him the life and love behind culinary treasures which he communicates through his creations on the plate.
Preparation of food is a labour of loveVincent Lim
People can be shown how to mix pride, love and passion into food. And what a blessing to sit in front of a dining table, with lots of foods to eat, wine to drink and stories to tell, Lim says.
A menu is an artistic expression that people come to experienceVincent Lim
With a lifetime of worldwide culinary experience and restaurant acumen, Lim works with food businesses on finding their heart.
I tell my clients I help them find their identity first because without it they’re just a place that sells mealsVincent Lim
Building a ‘Food Heart’
Lim has worked with some of the world’s most famous restaurants applying his wisdom through guidance – including menu creation, marketing, collaboration cooking, restaurant systems and product development.
His skills have split into the media via writing food columns and celebrity cooking demonstrations.
