Anis Nabilah is a Malaysian celebrity chef and media personality best known as the host of television cooking shows such as Icip-Icip, Sesedap Rasa, Enak Tradisi and Rasa-Rasa.
Hailing proudly from Subang Jaya, Selangor, Anis’ passion for food developed at an early age. Whilst her siblings were out playing as children do, Anis would spend her days observing intently as her mother prepared the meals for their large family of 10. The countless hours spent in the kitchen with her mother were the foundation of what is now a sound understanding of the various flavours associated with Malay cuisine.
Her childhood fascination with the culinary arts became a career pursuit as she enrolled at the Food Institute of Malaysia graduating with a Diploma in Culinary Arts in 2007. During her time at the FIM, Anis was able to showcase herself in several international cooking competitions held across Malaysia and won numerous awards and accolades; one of the most memorable being the medal in the Culinaire 2007 competition.
Ever the hardworking and prolific chef, Anis has hosted five television cook-shows (Icip-Icip, Sesedap Rasa, Enak Tradisi, Rasa-Rasa and Food Short) in just over a year. Anis’ presentation skills and emphasis on “quick to make” recipes are a huge hit with her viewers. Such is the impact that Anis has made resulting in viewership that has skyrocketed to over 1 million viewers per episode. This is indeed a huge achievement for this young media personality who is still widely regarded as a rookie in the cooking-show circuit.
As a young adult who appreciates the importance and impact of social media in the digital age, Anis distinctively makes an effort to keep in touch with her fans and viewers, communicating with them daily through the various social media networks such as Twitter and Facebook. This has led to a consistent growth in her fanbase with an outreach spanning across all age groups.
Undoubtedly Anis is truly passionate about sharing her knowledge about food with fellow enthusiasts. Anis has a vision of one day being able to set up her own culinary institute in Malaysia.
Anis’ bubbly personality and extensive knowledge in the culinary arts is certainly a winning formula and is set to take this young and ambitious celebrity chef to greater heights.
