The Cooking Chook has been a good Chook

Just had to post about this because I’m so excited! I will not lie, it has been a challenge being a good Chook for an entire year, but it looks like my efforts have paid off. This is what I got for my birthday/Christmas present this year:

  • KitchenAid Stand Mixer and Food Processor, both in Empire Red
  • Luke Nguyen Wok

A huge thank you to my partner, my partner’s family, my bestest friend Melinda…and Santa, of course. Can’t wait to give these babies a whirl over the weekend! Merry Christmas indeed!

It’s not every day that you get to meet one of your favourite celebrity chefs and tell them how much of an inspiration they are to you.

For those who don’t know Luke Nguyen, he is part of the extraordinary team at Red Lantern (which he owns with his partner, his sister and her partner), the best modern Vietnamese restaurant I know in Sydney. Luke has authored and contributed recipes to some amazing cookbooks, including two that I own personally (Secrets of the Red Lantern and The Songs of Sa Pa) and is the host of a couple of great cooking shows (Luke Nguyen’s Vietnam and Luke Nguyen’s Greater Mekong) that feature on SBS. Why is Luke an inspiration? Read more…
