Chef Roong - Lek Lek Ban
#Mornington Peninsula

Growing up in her family kitchen in Eastern Thailand, cooking with the family’s matriarchs , it is no wonder Chef Roong  of Finesse Catering Group developed the pallet and skills at a young age that will take her far in her career. After many years in the culinary world under her belt, Roong has developed a range of scrumptious condiments that will get the Kapow into your cooking in seconds. We are hooked.

Follow her on a kaleidoscope of bright flavours that pay homage to all corners of the country. With a twist of her wrist and decades of experience, Roonie weaves together her superb knowledge and incomparable insight into the essence of Thai food and culture with her ready to use sauces and catering options.

Her unassuming jar of crunchy mess coconut & chilli will quickly become a cult following now that it has been unleashed to the world! Think spicy, tingly, umami, pungent, fiery, sharp, sexy, lip-puckering, drop-dead gorgeous, luscious, refined, unforgiving and badass.

The Ginger Nam Pla Dressing is actually a balancing act of ginger, garlic, birds eye chilli, palm sugar and high-grade fish sauce that make this dressing so good you should literally drink it on its own!

The Sweet Chilli Sauce is next level flavour bomb with hints of highly addictive natural Thai flavours, a sweet heat with undertones of caramelised garlic and pickled daikon. This sauce is sure to become praised by adults and kiddos with adventurous taste buds!

And the Pork Crackle Chilli Jam we serve on anything & everything from eggs, meat & fish, fried rice, pasta, your favourite toasty, or your secret weapon against your partners boring Tuesday dinner the list keeps going and going and going!

Chef Roong’s effervescence character shines through her condiment, packing a punch of happiness into your food. Our Family favourite is the coconut & chilly crunch tossed through pan fried green beans. you won’t look back.
