    Sherson’s culinary interest stemmed from an early age. As the oldest among his siblings, Sherson started helping out at his mother’s café in Kuala Lumpur when he was just 11-years-old, where he learned how to peel garlic and onions. By 12, Sherson began serving customers and learning how to cook.

    Sherson eventually embarked on his own culinary career, enrolling in Taylor’s College for a six-month hotel industry apprenticeship course, and spending 3 months training at JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur. He then returned to help out at his family business, Paradise Corner, which he eventually took over management and ownership. After three years of successful patronage and growth, Sherson sold the restaurant and moved to Malacca with his family to manage their resort, El Sanctuary. Along with his mother, Sherson continued to cook and serve food to guests staying in their resort.

    It was during the service of a meal at El Sanctuary that a consultant for a show scouted Sherson and asked if he would like to host 5 Rencah 5 Rasa. Sherson has since become a popular culinary figure in Malaysia’s food scene, and has served as a guest judge in reality program Dapur Selebrity. The talented chef is also the host of Asian Food Channel’s original programs, The Amazing Food Challenge: Fun in the Philippines and Family Kitchen with Sherson, where he cooks in the comfort of his own kitchen alongside his mother, with special appearances from his family!

    In his spare time, Sherson enjoys playing music, traveling around the world and diving.

    Sherson is currently based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
