Cook along with #CookingSuperstar Chyuen


When did you first get in to cooking and do you remember the first recipe you tried?

I got into cooking 5 years ago when I first moved to Manchester to further my studies. Being away from my family meant having to learn to cook out of sheer necessity and desperation. The first recipe I ever tried to cook was Hainanese Chicken Chicken - it's one of Singapore's national dishes and it is the ultimate comfort food for me. My grandmother taught me how to cook it just so I wouldn't miss home so much when I was living abroad.

What's your kitchen like and how do you keep organized when cooking?

My kitchen's not as big as I'd like it to be but it does the job. I like to tidy while I cook just so there won't be a mess waiting for me after I finish my meal. I've also learnt a lot of tips and tricks on how to organise my kitchen from Buzzfeed - if you haven't checked it out, you really should!

What tips would you give to someone wanting to become a better cook?

Watch cooking tutorials on Youtube!

Who would you invite to your dream dinner party and what would you cook for them?

Probably Donal Skehan! That's a very good question...

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

Apart from cooking (and eating, obviously), I like to paint and play the guitar. I also like to do yoga, barre, and go for hikes.

Which cooking blogs do you love to read?

Donal Skehan, Half Baked Harvest, and Laura Vitale are some of my favourites!
