In Conversation With Jas Ayling - Founder Rendang & Rice

We're delighted to share with you, the 8th episode in the 'TFP in conversation with' series, which features people, businesses, brands and entrepreneurs from across the food & drink world - finding out more about why they do what they do, their purpose, how they see the future and how, in their way, they are championing change and shifting the future of food & drink

In this episode, Charles speaks to Jas Ayling, former 2019 Masterchef Quarter Finalist, Head of Innovation at Wagamama and now Founder of Rendang & Rice. Jas talks about how she's taken inspiration from her Dutch-Indonesian heritage, how authenticity is based on personal experience, her earliest food childhood memories and the icon fragrance of Indonesian Bumbu. In addition, Jas explains her connection with the Buck Street Market in Camden, how she's trying everyday to learn more about sustainable food practices, the overwhelming response to recipe boxes and how Rendang & Rice is not a street food concept but an 'Indonesian Toko'.
