Interview with Bobby Chinn

“My life is what I made it. It is somewhat chaotic which works perfectly well if you have ADD, but I do not recommend it to the faint of heart. I have two restaurants in two different cities, where I am filming on and off my new series about opening my flagship restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City.
In between those filming dates and restaurant operations I also continue to film sporadically the World Café Series. If that was not enough, I also do events and appearances where I promote a cause or simply cook for an event. I am also working on a new book and continue to play a little music with my friends.”
As Mae West said ‘ You only live once, and once is enough if you do it right!
From the time I first interviewed Bobby Chinn in Bali (2008) we have kept in touch. Bobby has been a great supporter of Live Encounters and in the first few issues he contributed articles on life in Vietnam and his magical culinary conceptions. He is a maverick star who has hosted the World Cafe Asia show for the Travel and Living Channel, BBC’s Saturday Kitchen, UKTV Food’s Great Food Live and Bobby Chinn Cooks Asia for the Discovery Channel. – Editor
