Alvin Quah's Biography

Animated, witty and approachable Alvin Quah doesn’t just want you to experience Malaysian cuisine, he wants you to immerse yourself in it. A fun loving entertaining chef, Alvin Quah is great at expo’s, cooking demonstrations and team activities.

Alvin Quah is still one of Australia’s most loved personalities to come out of any ‘MasterChef’ series. Known for his animated, witty and approachable demeanour, he is on a mission to increase awareness for Malaysian Cuisine.  Born in Kuala Lumpur with Chinese Malaysian Heritage, Alvin speaks fluent Cantonese and Hokkien. Since a young age he has been passionate about his culture’s food.  A fascination that today, still fuels his ultimate food dream to make Malaysian cuisine as renowned as is Chinese or Thai.

In 1994 Alvin moved from Malaysia to Melbourne to complete his PhD in Science. Here, exposed to a rush of Western culture and cuisine Alvin, true to his science background and with his naturally inquisitive nature, was inspired to see how both cuisines could be infused in a way that both traditions were respected.

After finishing as a finalist and favourite of Series 2 ‘MasterChef Australia’ in 2010, Alvin  became the ambassador for Asian food giant Ayam, working with them to develop recipes and spread the word about Asian cuisine.  He has also worked on campaigns such as ‘Malaysian Kitchen’, Chinese New Year festivities and at prestigious food events like Good Food Show both in Australia and Internationally. Alvin is a proud ambassador for Australian Red Cross.
