Cheong Liew is one of South Australia’s real food heroes.
He initially studied to be an engineer but instead became a chef, restaurateur, teacher and culinary icon.
Cheong moved from Malaysia to Australia in 1969. He received his first critical acclaim for his Adelaide based restaurant Neddy’s. However, he is probably best known for his prestigious restaurant The Grange, which opened in the Adelaide Hilton Hotel in 1995 and closed in 2009.
Cheong has a reputation for creative cuisine and his food philosophy is that “All food tastes better shared”.
