When did your passion for cooking begin? I grew up around food and amongst the best cooks, who are definitely my mother and my late dad. I was very lucky to find such a strong male figure who could cook. Their influence is what made me love cooking and develop it as a passion, which later on turned into a profession.\u00a0 How has your journey been like as a chef? It\u2019s been a long journey to be where I am at today. I attribute it to hard work and having a positive \u2018I can do\u2019 mind. Talk about being a lady chef, what are the ups and downs to it? It\u2019s been fun, but one needs to be strong, strict and fair to all. My motto is always never give up, therefore, no\u00a0 amount of stress or hectic deadlines can stop me. Do you cook when you are at home? Yes I do. I cook a lot when I\u2019m home since my family really enjoys the food I prepare. What are you doing to ensure that guests are safe at your restaurant? First of all, all my team members have undergone Covid-19 tests, they have been trained on the same and how to handle guests in case they get sick. Currently, I work with a smaller team in the kitchen to ensure that social distancing is maintained and above all, hygiene is the key. Everything received from the suppliers is sanitised at the receiving bay before storage or use. Lastly is making sure that any food consumed has to be at the right temperature. Who inspires you? Chef Joseph Gacheru and Chef Gurpreet Mehta Singh. These two have taught me a lot in my career and how to survive strongly as a chef. Apart from cooking, your other hobbies\u2026 \u00a0I love spending time with my daughter Paula. She enjoys when I\u2019m in the kitchen with her teaching her how to cook. But if I\u2019m not in the kitchen, I love watching movies with her and my sister Brenda. I also love going places, travelling is fun.
