Who or what inspires you to cook?

The kitchen, often referred to as the heart of the home, becomes a place of warmth and connection when families and friends gather around the aroma of cooking dishes. This sense of fellowship is not just about sharing a meal; it's about creating memories, sharing stories, and learning from one another. For someone who finds inspiration in bringing families together, cooking transcends the act of preparing food—it becomes a medium through which bonds are strengthened, and cultures are share

What's your all time favorite dish to make?

I enjoy cooking Asian inspired meals, but I do not have favorites. I believe having favorites tends to keep people in a box.

What would you do with the $25,000?

I would use the funds to invest in my tea company and/or buy fruit for my toddlers.
