Sam Low was a shy 8-year-old when he arrived from Fiji to Auckland. After winning Masterchef 2022 and challenging cliched notions of Asian-inspired cooking, he's now a household name in Aotearoa.

In this episode of Here Now,  the food creative and author of Modern Chinese takes a walk through a farmer's market with Kadambari Raghukumar.

He chats about what it means to let go of the idea of pursuing genius and mastery and instead lean into one's virtuosity.
