Missymu, an affectionate name for daughter, tells the story of chef, Shirley Summakwan, and her connection to family, culture and heritage. This is Shirley’s flavour of Asia.
“My passion for food began with the generations before me – my mother and grandmother. Growing up in Jakarta, Indonesia, with an Indonesian/ Chinese background, the family kitchen became the place I best connected with my loved ones.
Family is the reason that I love to cook, I love food and I love to make people happy. It fills me such pride when I see people enjoying the food I serve and create. Missymu by Shirley provides the opportunity to share the dishes and express the memories that I cherish with those that dine with us. Still today we create bonds with people over food and this is something I find extremely fulfilling”.
– Shirley Summakwan, Head Chef
