MasterChef Dato’ Fazley Yaakob showed fans and friends how to create a few innovative culinary delicacies using IDEAL® Full Cream Evaporated Milk in a pleasant afternoon of tastes, sights and sounds at TESCO Extra Mutiara Damansara recently.
Famed for being the Celebrity MasterChef Malaysia Season 1, Singer, Entrepreneur, Motivational Speaker and Father of 3, Chef Dato’ Fazley confesses that he picked up cooking from two special ladies in his life – which are both his grandmother and mother. They have always inspired him in many ways and one of them is their ability to create recipes with lots of love.

“As a Negeri Sembilan boy with exposure in patisserie by the Le Cordon Blue institute in Paris, I am constantly looking at ways to incorporate creative elements in my dishes. My aim is to deliver wholesome quality flavours that are authentic and yet, truly Malaysian, with a twist”, Dato’ Fazley says.
He demonstrated to the rapt audience how to create his Butterscotch Pancake with Strawberry, saying that he took inspiration from the Western pancake and localizing it into our favourite local lempeng. The additional twist is replacing the commonly used Caramel with Gula Melaka infused with IDEAL®. To further perfect the dish and delight the palate with full cream goodness is of course the IDEAL® Full Cream Evaporated Milk too

With the Raya just around the corner, Dato’ Fazley highlighted, “I love preparing unique dishes to delight my friends and family when they come visiting. The Puteri Mandi dessert for example will be a dish that I will be making specially with IDEAL®. It substitutes the traditional coconut milk to boost the rich creamy taste and aroma of the dish. I love these moments where we are able to come together to enjoy sweet creations and share treasured love through food. It means even more when we are able to gather during Raya to celebrate abundances amidst my busy schedule playing multiple roles.”
Ms. Eileen Chan, Category Head of Condensed Milk, F&N Dairies concluded at the event, “With IDEAL®, we are constantly aiming for perfection served in flavourful and creative ways so that family and friends can savour the pleasures of the good life together. This is almost synonymous with Dato’ Fazley coming across to us as an innovative Chef. We truly admire his passion in cooking and his commitment in wanting to set new standards in gourmet indulgences.”
