Why only food?
Faced with the scarcity of decent wholesome food that every college student dealt with for a couple of years during dorm life, *kel’s serious venture into cooking surfaced out of survival mode. She somehow also cultivated the breakfast habit since college. In fact the first thing she thinks about waking up in the morning is, “I need food!” Since then, food shopping, cooking and baking has evolved into a form of therapy. She could spend many hours in the kitchen, at the green-grocer, and anywhere that spells f-o-o-d.
Creative and healthy, her cooking style is improvisional. Forget about asking her what's for dinner. She doesn't even know until she starts taking out the ingredients from the fridge! Unless it's one of those Saturday mornings when she wakes up feeling like cooking up a storm and marches right into the kitchen to tackle a fabulous recipe clipping.
How it all began?
Not long before she started this blog, friends have remarked on the frequency of macro food shots within her travel snapshots. Thereafter, she has been spotted with a camera snapping away on food-related items and getting inspired with writing ideas for this blog.
