Wael Lazkani

Wael Lazkani has been cooking all over the world for 18 years.
After studying and working for years as a chef in London, Geneva, France and Montreal, he almost quit the field. But then he discovered Asian cuisine and accidentally landed a gig as a chef on a yacht. For the next eight years he was forced to get “painfully creative”, coming up with 27 different dishes daily for his clients. During his six-month long winter breaks Lazkani spent his time in Southeast Asia. “I fell in love with Asian food in London. It’s the food that took me to Southeast Asia – it’s food that takes me everywhere. All food, all the time!” he says.
