I am a professional cook and cooking fanatic. A long time ago I learnt to cook from my mother, then




from Singapore

I had a wonderful time cooking with Marti of Kitchen Pixie in her lovely home kitchen. She's a delightful lady and super organised. We got thru the Jewish menu (including making Challah bread) rather efficiently, leaving enough time to indulge in the food over a good chat. I learned something interesting about the Jewish food culture and picked up some good tips too. The experience was definitely a highlight during my Budapest trip!
