CHEF BENG is crazy about tasty dishes and sharing them with friends and family, both in the kitchen and on the dining table.

Beng started his journey in creative culinary by becoming on of the finalists of MasterChef Indonesia Season 2 in 2012. As a trained and experienced accountant, he made a cannonball jump participating in the competition.

Beng has now built a career in the culinary world by being food stylist and giving cooking workshops, always exploring and creating recipes along the way.

As a kid, Beng was intrigued into the kitchen by tasty meals. “Like every mother, my mom cooks for the family. But as a little kid, I was curious about various dishes – food that my mom did not cook for the family,” he reminisced.

So little Beng began looking up recipes and tried to re-create food on his own. Although he was then swayed into a career outside the kitchen, he is happy that now he is able to pursue his passion.

Burger was one of his first cooking experiment. On this occasion, Beng showed us how to make an extra large burger enough for the whole family.

“Burger is easy and fun to make. Everyone can lend their hands in making a burger. Children will definitely have fun getting their hands dirty making the bun and patty. Big burger means bigger fun to cook and to eat,” he said with a smile.

What makes this extra large burger different is Beng used food grade charcoal powder in the bun.

Activated charcoal is known for several benefit, including to help promote a healthy digestive tract by removing toxins that cause allergic reactions, oxidative damage and poor immune system function, and to help the body flush out the toxins and chemicals that cause damage to organs.

“Moreover, a black bun looks really cool,” Beng said. Let’s get all hands on deck for this one!
