“Sometimes the best way to figure out who you are is to get to that place where you don’t have to be anything else.”
This quote I believe is the closest representation of the journey I’ve embarked upon in the last 6 years. Looking back now, the decision to go Tasmania for studies was the best decision I’ve ever made in my life. Tassie was where I discovered myself. It was there that I got to a place where I didn’t have to be anything else, I didn’t have to be the person people had labelled me to be. It was there that I could be ME.
I would never have thought that I’d be sitting here today and sharing about my culinary joys and mishaps with millions around the world. But in truth, it is a journey worth sharing. I, who once could not even cook rice or fry an egg properly, have come very far to where I am today. I’ve truly discovered the joy of picking up a whisk and a wok and allowing my imagination to run its full course in my haven. It is in my kitchen that I can be myself. The pleasures of whipping up decadent desserts, experimenting and modifying new recipes, and even frying an egg can bring such joy to my heart.
I’m a self-taught cook/chef/baker/artist – whatever term you would like to use to describe me. Many of my recipes were the result of LOADS of failures! Ask my ex-housemates and they can testify to the amount of times they’ve had to be my guinea pigs! Nowadays, I work full-time as a restaurant manager and also run a home-catering and events planning/management business. I’ve recently relocated to Sydney, Australia and am still trying to find my way around this big city. So, please come join me as I embark on my journey of self-discover and as I discover the simple pleasures of life!
