With more than 15 years of experience in the food industry, Debbie is a true-bred Nyonya who hails from Malacca, whose father is a Baba from Malacca, whilst her mother is a Nyonya from Penang.

Debbie is also the indefatigable author of numerous acclaimed cookbooks such as ‘UNDERWRAPS’ and ‘Asian Titbits’, a comprehensive ‘Penang Food’ guide and cookbook and ‘Nyonya Flavours’, with her latest book entitled ‘Authentic Nyonya Tastes’.  She is currently working with ‘Her World’ on their annual cookbook which is set to be published in June. On a monthly basis, she also contributes regularly to magazines such as ‘Flavours’ by Star Publications and ‘Oriental Cuisine’ by Nanyang Press.

From 13 May to 3 July, Debbie Teoh features her authentic Nyonya cuisine in a la carte and buffets.
