WHAT’S YOUR HOME KITCHEN LIKE?I share my home kitchen with my mom and my children, where I can bond and impart my culinary skills to them. An ideal kitchen should be a good size to accommodate both the young and old. WHAT DO YOU USUALLY COOK AT HOME?I do a lot of roasting because there’s less cooking smells and less cleaning up to do afterwards!MUST-HAVE


APPLIANCE?There’s so much you can do with a combi oven. I like to steam a nice down-to-earth Chinese-style fish dish with it or even a fish papillote wrapped in paper.GAS HOB OR INDUCTION?

I am traditional in my cooking methods so gas hob for sure. OPEN OR CLOSED STORAGE? Covered storage solutions will keep pests such as flies out and makes for less maintenance in terms of area cleaning. The dustbin or waste area should be covered and cleared in half a day. I’m always nagging at my kids to clear it!
