Redzuawan Ismail, better known as the famous celebrity, Datuk Chef Wan, was hosted to a dinner to promote Fiji in his television series.

Assistant Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism Lorna Eden, who was present to officiate at the dinner, thanked Chef Wan for availing his time to promote Fiji to the world.

“We are very thankful that you chose to put Fiji in your series as you know we have been trying to market Fiji in Asia and I know this programme will help tremendously with the good coverage we will receive so we thank you,” Mrs Eden said.

Mrs Eden said they were happy to host the event, which was made possible by the Fijian High Commission in Malaysia, in partnership with the Ministry of Tourism.

This is Chef Wan’s first visit to Fiji and so far he said he was enjoying himself. “Being in Fiji has actually opened up my eyes and taught me so much,” he said.

“Fiji has a lot of happy people and bright friendly smiles. I’m happy to share the friendship the lifestyle the Fijian people have shared with me.

“In the 27 years I’ve been with television I’ve visited many countries and met many people; in fact this is our fourth year travelling all over the world and a lot of my friends travelling to all these big countries say they are all the same then I thought why don’t people come to this side of the world?

“So then the idea came to me to visit Fiji for the first time and now that I’ve seen and witnessed for myself; this is the place to be,” he said.

Chef Wan was joined by New Zealand chef Robert Oliver.
