In Conversation With Julie Lin, Chef and Owner of GaGa Restaurant

We're delighted to share S3, E8 of 'TFP In Conversation With', where tfp Director Charles speaks to chef and restauranteur Julie Lin, a quarterfinalist on MasterChef.

The In Conversation With... series 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 month's episode, Charles speaks to chef, restaurateur, author and TV presenter Julie Lin about how her love for planning dinner and her Mum's Malaysian heritage began her journey to becoming a chef, how MasterChef helped develop her profile at a deeper level and the exciting fusion of Malaysian cuisine and Scottish ingredients at her restaurant, GaGa.

In addition to this, Julie joins Charles to talk about...

- The narrative around authenticity whilst respectfully cooking with authentic ingredients and techniques
- Adapting and evolving dishes to fit the local Scottish 'larder', whilst being true to Malaysian techniques
- The mentors and influencers that have shaped her career
- What 'fusion' means to her and how it often gets a bad rep (possibly rightly so!)

... and more!
