About Chinese Chef Morris Lee
Chef Morris Lee started his professional culinary career 12 years ago in Malaysia working for the Equatorial Malacca then moving to Marriott before joining Hotel Jen Malè, Maldives. His journey has taken him from ranks in the Chinese cuisine over the years. His culinary interest was stirred at the young age of 15 helping his mother at home and over the years he picked up skill and enjoyed cooking Chinese home cooked meals for his family. Once he was in the hotels, he learned new skills and improvised his home cooking methods. Despite the years, his passion is still burning for Chinese Cuisine and his favorite food is still Chinese.
