Q. When did you realise that you wanted to be a chef? What inspired you to pursue this career?

I am a single child to a single mother. From the age of 4, the only time I could spend with my mother was in the kitchen when she cooked dinner after work. Sitting on the shelf as she cooked, I would take in the aroma of spices, dirty my hands in the dough and play with utensils. As I reached the age of 10, I started helping out in the kitchen. I would try my hands at chopping, kneading and cleaning the kitchen. These little moments gave me happiness and made me who I am today!
