Kwoklyn grew up in the heart of the restaurant and catering industry. His family that quite literally put Chinese food on the map in his home town of Leicester. They were the first to open Chinese restaurants in the town.
It was a natural progression for Kwoklyn to follow in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. As a third generation Chinese chef & restaurateur, Kwoklyn has taken the knowledge of his ancestors and built on it by making his own name. He is now best known as a passionate media chef and bestselling cookbook author.
Founded and led by Kwoklyn, Eastern Heroes was inspired, as much by his own family history, as by the stories of the first Chinese to bring their culture and flavours to the UK since migration from China began in the late 17th Century. Being more than just a premium catering business, Eastern Heroes invites you to bring the full ambience of the Orient to your event through the delicious flavours, traditional customs and etiquettes of pan-Asian dining. Whether you’re planning an elegant table top meal, a delicate canapé reception or looking for the excitement of a street food party, Eastern Heroes will ensure your event is a date to remember!
Kwoklyn has cooked for Phil & Holly on ‘This Morning’, presented a BBC documentary on the food industry and hosts regular cookery classes and an online cookery school – KWok On Kitchen. All this in combination with the worldwide distribution of his book ‘Chinese Takeaway Cookbook’ means Kwoklyn is fast becoming the international authority on oriental cuisine.
