She loves all aspects of gastronomy, from discovering local & unique produce to eating her way around the world. What’s more, she still can’t quite believe her day job now involves eating. Her favourite food is the Singaporean peasant dish Hainanese Chicken Rice. She also loves anything with bubbles from champagne & beer to soft drinks and is officially in love with her Soda Stream.
