I grew up in Singapore, a food lover's paradise, but it was only in the UK that I fell in love with cooking. So I held (lots and lots of) dinner parties, took as many cooking classes as I could afford (had the opportunity to participate in a demo by Samin Nosrat- whose cookbook Salt Fat Acid Heat is one of my absolute favourites- and try her cooking!) as well as volunteered at soup kitchens such as Refettorio Felix (an initiative by 3 Michelin star chef Massimo Bottura- Thomson Reuters came to film during 1 of my volunteer sessions and, if you watch super closely, you can spot me in the video) & supper clubs. Oh, I even organised a supper club of my own to raise funds for UNICEF (#cookforsyria)- those were good times! (As I write this, it's been 1 year, 2 months and 6 days since I left London for good to return to Singapore.)
Volunteering at Luiz Hara's supper club was incredibly fun and rewarding and is actually what inspired this blog. I bought 1 of his cookbooks, The Japanese Larder, which shows people how to use Japanese ingredients in their everyday cooking and I thought it was such a fantastic idea! When I cook Middle Eastern recipes, for example, I'm always left with a ton of some ingredient that ends up collecting mold in my pantry and I have lots of friends who have the same problem with Asian condiments. So, hopefully, this blog helps to demystify some of our local ingredients and reduce the amount of food that we waste!

Life outside food blogging
Before I had a food blog, I had a DIY blog. It was even featured on TimeOut London and Buzz Feed! (My creation is #3 on the list.)
