MEET THE TEAM

Dan Cheung

 

Dan LOVES cooking and mostly eating delicious food. Experiences include: growing up in a family that owned a Chinese restaurant, living and working (mostly eating) in Japan, cooking stints in Pan-Asian kitchens in Melbourne and Vancouver, and backpacking his way through the street food vendors of South-East Asia for 9 months. Though Dan has honed a palate for the art of Asian cooking, more recently, is influenced by globally-inspired chefs like Yotam Ottenlenghi, Jamie Oliver and Dan Barber along with plant-based home bloggers like Angela Liddon and Dana Schultz. They have opened up Dan’s cooking repertoire to include a fusion of his beloved Asian flavours with middle-eastern, Italian, vegan and vegetarian-focused cuisine. Dan is the founder of Nourish and runs and owns it with his wife Abbey and the help of a superstar team.

Alicia Yip

 

Alicia’s passion for cooking and food began at a young age – her mother would even turn on the cooking channel when she was a toddler to calm her down!
