Celebrated MasterChef Malaysia judge Johari Edrus may be in his sixties now, but he still has crystal-clear memories of his late father Edrus Haji Abdul Rashid, who passed away in 1986.

Edrus was a teacher who eventually became a police officer. Consequently, he was constantly posted to different places around the country, which is why Johari spent his formative years with his grandparents instead. After his grandmother died, he went to live with his parents, which is when he got to know his father in earnest.
