Chef David Wang is the newbie in town. He’s just started his stint at Szechwan Court at The Oberoi. In conversation with Explocity he says, cooking with love and passion breeds creativity.
I grew up in and around the bustling town of Beijing.
There were quite a few of my cousins who were in the food business and chefs too. Thus, I was attracted to their vibrant careers and wanted to become a part of this industry when I grew up.
More than two decades
To me cooking with love and passion is creating. So, when I cook, I create.
Nothing more valuable. Tradition, originality, authenticity can become a dying art if not preserved and nurtured through generations. Thus, I take pride that my food stays very true to their roots.
My comfort and go-to food is stir-fried vegetables tossed with fresh garlic and soy, with steamed rice and for a little pampering add generous portions of palm heart and asparagus.

It’s a lovely city and the people are friendly. The hotel team for me is family here and they have made me feel at home.
