One of the most well-known culinary figures in Malaysia, Chef Wan, has recently announced that he will be releasing his own YouTube channel this December.

The likeable chef plans to have programmes that will bring the spotlight to the best of Malaysian street food, mixing it up with stories of reputable restaurants, cooking tips and introducing viewers to tourist destinations.

The original report by The New Straits Times cites Chef Wan receiving the idea to begin his own YouTube channel after being prompted by another celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver. 

The two met more than a decade ago at a food festival in Sydney, Australia, and Oliver had intially planned to sign Chef Wan up to his own online channel. 

The Malaysian chef respectfully declined as he wanted to have full creative control over his channel's contents.
