Chef Susur Lee
The multi-award winning, world-renowned Chef Susur Lee known affectionately as ‘the ponytailed chef’, is arguable one of the world’s most creative chefs. Best known for his original style of Asian-inspired cuisine – perfectly combining the best Asian flavours using Western techniques.
Praised as one of the "Ten Chefs of the Millennium" in 2000 by Food & Wine magazine, Susur Lee is still at the top of his game. In addition to helming five restaurants in Toronto—Lee, Bent, Luckee, Lee Kitchen and Fring’s—and overseeing his prestigious TungLok Heen in Singapore’s Hotel Michael, Lee makes numerous television appearances and travels the world as guest chef and consultant. Following appearances on Iron Chef America, he became a media sensation on Top Chef Masters, where he vanquished 20 competing chefs and crossed filleting knives with Chef Marcus Samuelsson in a kitchen showdown. Lee is also a judge on Food Network Canada's Chopped Canada, and joined the stellar three-judge panel on Lifetime’s Masterchef Asia.
