In the first episode of the Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry, Lee Tran Lam catches up with David Ralph, a chef who has worked at diner-impressing restaurants in Sydney (Quay, Flying Fish and Sails at Lavendar Bay) and London (Michelin-starred La Noisette and Kensington Place).
David's an expert at placating anyone with a sweet tooth as he
currently runs Kakawa, the best chocolatier in Sydney with his
partner Jin. He chats about his kitchen war stories (he once had to
break up a fight between two chefs), what the staff meals at flash
restaurants are like (the better the restaurant, the worse they
are!), dealing with the day-to-day temptation of working with
chocolate and shares his favourite places to dine in Sydney.
As always, thanks to FBi for letting us record in its wonderful studios. And thanks to Alex Watts for his excellent production work.
