Ludlow Food Festival

The Original Festival for Food and Drink Lovers

Zaleha Olpin

Where: Castle Outer Bailey

Fans of MasterChef will recognise Zaleha who was a contestant on the programme in 2018.

Growing up in Malaysia, she was taught to cook traditional Malaysian dishes from an early age by her mother. Zaleha now lives in Bristol with her husband and her youngest daughter. Trained as an Accountant, Zaleha left her job in a Multi-National Oil & Gas Company to travel with her husband around the world.

Having lived in Korea, the Middle East and Australia, she considers herself to be a well versed in international cookery but still goes back to her traditional cooking when comes to having family or guests for supper.

Zaleha and 2 of her friends own the successful ‘Malaysian kitchenUK Supper Club’ based in Bristol.

One of her greatest ambitions in life is to be able to teach Malaysian Cookery – to know how special the food is due to the multicultural populations in the country.
