2014 was a fantastic year for me, celebrating my 30th career anniversary – a lot has changed since my first TV series in 1984.
This year I am as busy as ever and looking forward to celebrating Chinese New Year, the Year of the Goat, with close family and friends. Look out for the chance to win signed Chinese New Year prizes from 11th February. Click here to download my Chinese New Year booklet.
With very best wishes,
About Ken Hom

Born in Tucson, Arizona, where his Cantonese parents lived after emigrating to America in the late 1940s, Ken was raised by his mother in Chicago, Illinois. His introduction, and love of cooking, began at the age of 11 when Ken worked in his uncle’s Chinese restaurant; he then went on to study in California until he was discovered by the BBC in 1982 and filmed his first BBC TV series in 1984 – the rest is history! Ken has recently celebrated 30 years as the face of Chinese cuisine.

Ken’s Oriental Range
The Ken Hom meal range includes over 20 delicious dishes and can be found in the chilled ready meal aisle at Tesco. Ken is passionate about using authentic ingredients in his cooking and gives every dish real depth and balance of flavour.
Ken says: “The passion and enthusiasm I have for my range with Tesco is the same I have when preparing meals for some of the world’s most famous people. Delicious food relies on great ingredients and vision and we have worked hard to ensure every dish in my Oriental range delivers.”
Ken’s passion for authentic taste is borne out by the fact every dish brims full of fresh ingredients such as ginger, garlic, orange and lemon zest; as well as distinctive Chinese flavours such as plum sauce, chee hou sauce and Ken’s very own vinegar sauce.
The delicious range includes main dishes such as Crispy Chilli Beef, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Crispy Aromatic Duck and side dishes such as Vegetable Spring Rolls and Egg Fried Rice. Ken’s meals have been created to cater for all tastes.
