About the Chef
Head Chef/Owner, U, Ma & Me
Rebecca Ng was born and raised in the beautiful island of Tasmania. Surrounded by the natural beauty, fresh air and pure water, she developed an appreciation for exceptional produce. As a young child, she and her sister would pretend they were starring in their own TV cooking show. This dream brought Rebecca where she is today. As an apprentice, Rebecca won a scholarship to work alongside her idol, internationally renown chef, Tetsuya Wakuda. From this invaluable experience, she learnt the importance of precision and technique. After qualifying as a chef, she started at Longrain, Melbourne. It was there that her love for Thai food flourished. After a few years of hard work, she was rewarded with a promotion to sous chef. Prior to starting up U, Ma & Me, Rebecca was head chef at Magic Mountain Saloon. Rebecca thinks there is nothing better than home-made. More
