Great interview of Singapore chef Malcom Lee by USA TODAY's Ronny Stoddart, with photos by yours truly. His take on Peranakan cuisine - a mashup of Chinese ingredients with Malaysian spices and cooking techniques - is tantalizing.
Singapore's chef Malcolm Lee is helping preserve the island's traditional cuisine.
