Landslide Victory for the Malaysian Palm Oil Food Truck Tour de France

This past weekend, Paris-based chef, David Martin’s Food Truck Tour de France, made stops in Lyon and Bordeaux, two French cities known for their gastronomy and wine, to present his new French-inspired recipes, cooked with Malaysian Palm Oil. Photos of the chef’s Food Truck journey are online here.

Chef Martin’s Food Truck was a huge success as hundreds of French consumers gathered around his Food Truck to taste dishes made with Malaysian Palm Oil and to learn more about the positive benefits of Malaysian Palm Oil.

Locals got a chance to try various dishes including the Mango Chicken; Fish fillet with coconut milk and a red Palm Oil sauce; Sweet potato fritters with spicy sauce; and the banana wrap with red fruits sauce.

Many families came with their children to meet the Chef and try his tasty dishes. Children particularly enjoyed the Mango Chicken and the very colourful and delicious banana wrap.

The crowd found the food to be of excellent quality, and were pleasantly surprised to learn that it was cooked with Malaysian Palm Oil – and yet it tasted just as good as traditional French oils.

French consumers had many questions about Palm Oil, regarding the false rumors spread by NGOs and other about Palm Oil and deforestation, or saturated fats and health.

The Chef informed them about the health benefits of Palm Oil, including its nutritional properties (including vitamins A and E) and why Palm Oil is an excellent cooking oil due to its high heat resistance.

If you were not in Lyon or Bordeaux this past weekend, you can find photos and videos about the events, by visiting The Oil Palm Twitter accounts and Chef David Martin’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Chatting About France and Palm Oil with Ministers, MPs, and Chefs

Lunch with Malaysian Minister Datuk Seri Mah Siew Keong led to a lot of interesting conclusions… How do French consumers feel about palm oil? Do Malaysians follow the French media debate? And where is my Food Truck going next?

When you work in the food sector, every day holds its fair share of surprises. One has to understand that being a chef it isn’t only about the cooking. It’s about putting together various ingredients in order to achieve a coherent recipe. In September, I received a delegation of Malaysian leaders, led by Minister Datuk Seri Mah Siew Keong, to discuss the benefits of palm oil for France. The Minister was in Paris for meetings with the French Government and Parliamentarians to discuss relations between Malaysia and France.

I cook with Palm Oil, and they know more than anyone what Palm Oil is all about. To be able to share experiences with personalities from different backgrounds created quite a fantastic debate. We had lunch with political leaders, plantation experts, scientists and myself: the full spectrum of ingredients.

French cooking was perhaps something new for many of the Malaysian visitors – but of course the familiar palm oil that I use is something they know very well. The cooking was like the lunch guests: the perfect mix of France and Malaysia.

The Malaysian Minister had many questions about how Palm Oil is viewed in France. Thanks to my Food Truck experience in La Defense and Foire de Paris, I have a pretty good understanding of the French consumer’s views on palm oil. I cook with it and I was able to create traditional European dishes fused with Malaysian Palm Oil during those events.

The best news of all is that my Food Truck will be coming back soon. Many of you have been watching my recipe videos, asking me to come take my Food Truck on the road. So guess what? Your calls didn’t fall on deaf ears.

I’ll soon be making stops in my Food Truck in both Bordeaux and Lyon, major cities known for their wines and gastronomy. The big dates will be in November: watch this space!

I invite you to follow my Facebook and Twitter accounts, as I will be sharing more details about my upcoming Tour in the coming days. Earlier this year, Parisians were keen to taste my palm oil recipes: if you’re in Bordeaux and Lyon you will soon get that chance too.

Looking forward seeing you all very soon on the road.
