Gerald Tan

Presenter, AJEats

Gerald Tan is a TV news reporter by day and foodie by night. He is celebrating his 10th year with Al Jazeera and is now based at the network headquarters in Doha after stints in Washington, DC and Kuala Lumpur. As a senior producer in the English channel, he is responsible for writing, voicing, and packaging reports for the hourly news bulletins.  

His passion for international affairs is rivalled by only that for food. Gerald runs his own website www.boulangerry.com featuring articles about food and travel, the restaurant scene in Doha, and his kitchen adventures as a baker.

AJEats is the meeting of his two worlds, a lens into global culture through the food people eat.
