Cooking appliances that feature state-of-the-art aesthetics and functionalities –who doesn’t want that?
Ever since I ventured into food journalism, I’ve gained lots of culinary insights; stellar dining experiences undoubtedly amplified my interest in the kitchen.
I was never the kid who started cooking at a tender age. I’m tremendously jealous of the talented kids from Junior Masterchef. My parents are busy with work, and having home-cooked meals together are rare occasions.
I’ve never undergone professional culinary training, neither do I have an exceptional trained palate that detects the precise chemical compounds found in a single morsel –all I know is that I have an immense passion for food, and my learning capacity is infinite. I am a keen learner. I do not aspire to be a Michelin-star chef; all I want is to cook with my heart, and enjoy food with my loved ones.
My current kitchen is about 15 years old. The built-in oven has broken down (as much as I’d love to learn how to bake, there’s just this little I can do without an oven); the stoves aren’t at its prime anymore… we can’t figure out what went wrong, but it takes longer than usual to ignite a flame; the fridge… we’ve been contemplating changing it but procrastination just took over… the rubber strip that keeps the door sealed is worn out, leaving little gaps for cool air to escape at times.
I would really love to have a properly equipped kitchen –not only for its aesthetics but also for the functionality that could kick up my cooking skills up a notch. The current kitchen that we have… simply limits my learning potential.
A brand new kitchen would also bring the family closer… somewhere my parents can look forward to coming home, spend a little time cooking together, having a nice cosy meal together… Friends who come over for potluck will also be able to have more fun in the kitchen.
