A celebration of Asian chefs and their dishes to ring in the Year of the Tiger 🐅 for @thecaterermag . Thanks for the commission @ewinton88 😊Loved working on this cover design because I grew up in my parent’s Chinese takeaway and learnt to use a fiery wok, a lot of my family are chefs who own/ed their own restaurants and takeaways. This one is for you Dad - if you were still Earthside I’d be screen sharing the article and we’d have a good chat about it 🤗🥡🥟5 days ago via Instagram
