Chefs Makes Music + Culinary Delight

MALACCA: Rennaissance Melaka Hotel chefs showed their guests and patrons at the hotel's 22nd anniversary celebrations recently that they could “stomp” out music as well as whip up culinary delights.

Armed with knifes, woks, chopsticks, pans and cutting boards, the chefs gave a series of performances that appeard to have been inspired by stomp, a new genre of music where performers use kitchen utensils as percussion instruments.
