This isn’t your everyday salad. The team from healthy eating counter-serve Fete Up has shared with us the recipe for their delicious and unique Sichuan Cauliflower Salad – veg with a kick of mala!
We have their Chef William from Singapore to thank for this.

He also previously worked under Régis Marcon in France, as well as Guy Savoy in Singapore.
According to him, “this edition is an upgraded version of one of the most popular vegetable options that we currently serve in our outlets.”
