Q: What is your fondest memory for your family kitchen?
A: I have two. The fondest: was having Superman’s, Christopher Reeve over for dinner. The second is all the philosophizing my father still does while eating.
Q: Who is your favourite cook?
A: My mother, of course. She is the most fantastic cook since she samples from cultures all over the world. She can taste something and replicate it exactly. What a skill!
Q: What is your favourite food to cook?
A: Chicken. It’s easy, healthy and can be made a million different ways.
Q: How did first meal you prepared turn out?
A: Not so great. I got the recipe from a friend of a friend. I should have stuck to a cookbook.
Q: What kitchen gadget couldn't you live without?
A: My food processor. I hate grating, chopping or cutting.
