BIOGRAPHY

Chef Malcolm Lee is the Chef-Owner of Candlenut. As the first Singaporean recipient of the Miele Guide Scholarship, he was granted a place at the At-Sunrice Globalchef Academy, where he was able to explore his Asian culinary roots. A Peranakan, Chef Lee seeks to serve his heritage through a menu of refined tastes and techniques, hence creating Candlenut’s authentic yet innovative Peranakan flavours.

INSPIRATION

The world’s first Michelin-starred Peranakan restaurant, Candlenut takes a contemporary yet authentic approach to traditional Straits-Chinese cuisine. The restaurant serves up refined Peranakan cuisine that preserves the essence and complexities of traditional food, with astute twists that lift the often rich dishes to a different level. Helmed by chef Malcolm Lee, Candlenut is committed to continually create inspired and elevated Peranakan dishes using the freshest seasonal produce available.

Candlenut: Singapore’s Refined Peranakan Cuisine

Nowadays, as Singapore progresses, sometimes we take Peranakan cuisine for granted as most Singaporean families know how to cook a few Peranakan dishes by inheriting a few popular classics, or eat versions of Peranakan food from economic rice stalls every other day. So much so that we sometimes forget the heart and soul of Peranakan dining and taste – a sense of family togetherness.
