John Rocha

John Rocha is a Chinese-Portuguese Eurasian with years of experience in marketing & brand management, and managed his own consultancy prior to stepping into the culinary world.  Raised in a family with both Chinese and Western roots, John showed a keen interest in cooking, and over the years inherited dozens of Macanese heritage cooking recipes and techniques from his beloved grandma and mom. He started his social media platform in December 2016 to share recipes and photos, and began hosting cooking classes in 2017. He is currently a guest instructor at Towngas Cooking Centre, and as a brand ambassador for a number of leading cooking-related brands. He’s also helping clients to conduct cooking demos, and recipes’ planning and development.

John spent a lot of time in the research and study of food history and culture in recent years, and introduced creative cooking with an array of home-cooked dishes from around the world. He also organized premium food and cultural tours to Portugal, Spain, Malaysia, and Thailand for his cooking students and fans.  He creates, plans and supervises his own videos on cooking, themed dishes, and the popular series “John’s Mobile Kitchen”.
