Chef, author, television presenter
and APT Ambassador

Since opening his first restaurant in Sydney aged 23, Luke has authored seven best-selling and award-winning cook books; judged and hosted for the popular TV show MasterChef Australia; been inducted into the Sydney Morning Herald’s Food Hall of Fame for his cooking and travel programmes; and opened further successful restaurants in Sydney, Brisbane and Hong Kong, plus his GRAIN cookery school in Ho Chi Minh City.

In addition to all these achievements he has also proudly held the title of APT Ambassador since 2011.

Central to his relationship with APT is a shared belief that we travel to discover a culture unlike our own, and that food is an essential part of this adventure.

Working with APT, Luke relishes the opportunity to provide travellers with a culinary insight into the local culture, history and people.

We are delighted to welcome Luke Nguyen back once again as APT Ambassador. This season he has shaped a range of exclusive culinary experiences for guests to enjoy on every Vietnam & Cambodia holiday. In 2018, he will also escort guests on a unique gastronomic holiday, offering an authentic look at the region through his eyes.


Luke shares his enthusiasm for the food of his homeland as part of his ongoing partnership with APT, hosting an exclusive 16-day tour through Vietnam in August 2018. 

Your clients can meet Luke and enjoy a host of special experiences in Ho Chin Minh City and onboard the RV AmaLotus. Learn more here: www.aptouring.co.uk/experiences/luke-nguyen
