KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 9 — Mohd Nadzri Redzuawan, popularly known as Chef Riz and a judge on MasterChef Malaysia, is in hot soup. In his MasterChef profile on the Astro Ria website, he claimed to have worked at two famous restaurants in the US, but checks with both of them have revealed otherwise.

The son of local celebrity chef Redzuawan Ismail, better known as Chef Wan, claimed he worked as “chef de cuisine” — also called a head chef — at the world famous Mario Batali’s flagship Italian restaurant Babbo in New York when he was only 22.

Batali is an American chef who is as famous for his signature shorts and orange Crocs as his string of restaurants in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Singapore and has starred in the “Iron Chef America” TV series.

“These claims are untrue. Mr Nadzri has never worked at Babbo,” Mario Batali’s communications director, Pamela Lewy, said in an email reply yesterday.When contacted, Chef Riz insisted he did work at Babbo. “I was there for a year, from January 2005 to December 2005,” he said.

Now 29, he also told The Malaysian Insider he worked as “sous-chef” at Le Bernardin under chef Eric Ripert — of the Asian Food Channel’s “Avec Eric” fame — before returning home to star in several TV programmes.

A sous-chef is the second in command of the kitchen and directly assists the head chef. “I took a break, a short holiday before joining Le Bernardin for two years. I was there from March 2006 to July 2008,” he said to The Malaysian Insider in a phone interview yesterday.

A publicist for Le Bernardin, Helen Medvedovsky, told The Malaysian Insider this morning after checking with the Michelin three star-rated restaurant that: “We looked into this and found out this man never worked at Le Bernardin.”

When it was pointed out that Batali’s spokesman had refuted the claim, Chef Riz said: “Aiyoh! That’s weird. I’ll be checking with them.”



An email from Batali’s spokesman disputes Chef Riz’s claim of employment.

A check by The Malaysian Insider later this morning found his profile page to now say he was a trainee at both restaurants. No explanation for the amendments was appended to the page.

MasterChef Malaysia is a cooking show under the MasterChef franchise that is also present in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Greece, India, Sweden, Indonesia and the UK.

The show’s first season on Astro Ria began its run on October 22. Shooting for the series is scheduled to continue until the end of the year.

Memalukan saya - Chef Wan

KUALA LUMPUR - Chef selebriti terkenal, Datuk Redzuawan Ismail menganggap isu memperincikan butiran profil kelayakan secara berlebihan anaknya, Chef Mohd. Nadzri atau Chef Riz sebagai satu perkara yang memalukan bukan sahaja kepada anaknya tetapi diri beliau dan seluruh ahli keluarga.

Beliau yang lebih dikenali sebagai Chef Wan melahirkan rasa kecewa dan sedih dengan tindakan anak lelakinya itu melalui kenyataan terbuka di laman sosial Facebook miliknya semalam.

Beliau turut meminta Chef Riz, 29, memohon maaf kepada orang ramai dan menerima apa sahaja kesan terhadap apa yang dilakukannya itu.

Katanya, Chef Riz mungkin tidak faham bahawa apabila menjadi terkenal dan berbakat, maka akan ada pihak yang tidak senang dan timbul perasaan hasad serta dengki.

"Populariti dan berbakat akan membuatkan ramai orang tidak senang duduk dan cuba mencari kesalahan kita.

"Padanlah muka dia," kata Chef Wan yang memberitahu isu itu secara tidak langsung menjejaskan reputasi Chef Riz.

Chef Riz sebelum ini didakwa memberikan profil mengenai dirinya secara kurang tepat di laman MasterChef Malaysia dengan menyatakan pernah bekerja di dua buah restoran terkenal di Amerika Syarikat iaitu sebagai 'Chef de Cruisine' di Babbo dan 'Sous Chef' di Le Bernardin.

Beliau merupakan salah seorang daripada lima juri dalam program MasterChef Malaysia yang bersiaran setiap Sabtu hingga Rabu di Astro Ria.

Antara juri lain yang terlibat ialah Chef Zubir (Zubir Mohd. Zain), 45; Chef Priya (Priya Menon), 53; Chef Jo (Mohd. Johari Edrus), 55; dan Chef Yahya (Yahya Hassan), 49.
