Koh Kay Kim from Malaysia
Anton Amoncio's Cheesy Lamb Rack bested the entries of the other 3 finalists, and he was crowned as the champion of the Food Hero 2016. A big congrats to Chef Anton!
Chef Anton's love for travelling has allowed him to experience different cultures and heritage of the countries he has visited, which inspired him to always create unique recipes based on the destination. As a winner, he will join Scripps Network Interactive to host several programs shown on the Asian Food Channel (AFC) and The Food Network Channel.
Thanks for the invite, and I look forward to the next season of the Food Hero.
