Debbie Teoh is the person you turn to when you’re looking for true blue Peranakan (aka Nyonya) food. Having grown up with a Malaccan Baba father and Penang Nyonya mother, Debbie is well-versed with the food and traditions of the Peranakans. Under the tutelage of her Penang Nyonya aunts, Debbie was able to hone her cooking skills for traditional Peranakan fare and today, she is widely recognised as the world’s leading authority on Nyonya cuisine.


Debbie champions her Peranakan heritage via various talks and cooking demonstrations, and her skills have received high praise from no less than Israeli-British Chef Yotam Ottolenghi.


This Chinese New Year season, we are proud to announce that this amazing Chef herself will be gracing our kitchen at temu house with her specially curated Chinese New Year Nyonya menu titled; Nyonya Kaseh!


With the first night already fully sold out, we have requested that Chef Debbie run another night especially for temu house guests. So, make sure you book your seats today!
