Malaysia Kitchen BBQ Madness!

To kick off Crave Sydney International Food Festival 2011, Malaysia Kitchen participated in the BBQ Madness event by putting on a shindig at Parramatta Mall a few weekends ago.  It was full of fantastic food prepared by several Western Sydney Malaysian restaurants, including Parramatta favorites Temasek and Ma’leisia Cafe.  There were also demos by Masterchef Australia’s Alvin Quah and Adam Liaw, as well as chefs Wanitha Tanasingam and Florence Tan (Malaysia’s Maggie Beer).

It was a great chance to enjoy the great food and culture of Malaysia, plus hang out with a few food friends over lunch and dessert.
