So Fast, So Furious! - PH

PhotoHunt theme : Fast

Fast food is quick, convenient and usually inexpensive, but I rarely let my kids eat it.



I prefer to cook at home. It is tiring and time consuming but the food tastes better and the meals are healthier.



Now my son has taken home-cooking a little further.He is completing his culinary course soon and he is working hard to hone his skills as a chef. Wow.... so fast! Seems like yesterday when I brought him to his school's Open House. Time flies.



Lately he has been busy creating new dishes and making changes to a few of my recipes as he is planning a new menu for his restaurant.The dishes will be revealed in January 2010.

er.... I wish he would complete his new menu fast.
Because I'm so scared of the daily food tasting! :P
*dismay at expanding waistline*

  6. Hehe, that's strange, my son loves to cook too ! It's his hobby ! he takes classes all the time to learn new things and then he would cook for us and honnestly he is a very good cook !
    BTW if you want to make a virtual walk through one of the Brussels shopping malls it's here. It is quite big !

  8. mariuca,
    Morning!? You just woke up not long ago?

    Hope B is feeling better. So sweet of you to take care of him.

    Jaymes is working in a restaurant and his Boss is changing the menu, so he's helping out.

    Come to Singapore and I'll treat you to Jaymes' cooking. :)

    Good for you! It's great to cook as a hobby. I do get sick of cooking once a while. Wish I could cook as and when I like. :P

  14. Your EG Tour Guide,
    The time spent on home cooking is worth it. I can control the quality of the dishes.
    As my son grows older, I'm getting older too..... boohoo

    ReplyDelete
  27. Food, glorious food! Ohhh... you just got me thinking that I should have used today's entry to show a place in Hong Kong where Anthony Bourdain commented that "it's food fast, not fast food"! *smacks head* ;D

  28. It's good to have a chef in the family, can take over the kitchen duties! My 21 years old son is quiet good in cooking, I let him take over the cooking when he's at home.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I agree - time flies too fast.
    Good luck to your son!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Haha I really thought your son is gonna open his own restaurant, and i thought, wow so young, and i'm still studying!! :/

    Having a chef son is good leh! Every meal different food, so fun and enjoyable! :)

  31. You are complaining about have a chef in your house? No pleasing some people. Have a great weekend and happy holiday season ECL.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ah but it must be nice having a chef in the family! Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  34. oh congratulations! would want a taste test too! :D

    ReplyDelete
  35. Definitely home cooked food ls tastier and more nutritious. You are a lucky mum to have a son who is a chef. No need to worry what to cook, just let son decide.

  36. you wrote ...Because I'm so scared of the daily food tasting! ... hahha i imagine this is what mrs bb must feel everytime i intrude into her kitchen but she is too courteous to say it hahahaha

    ReplyDelete
  37. You're so right in homecooking. I wonder what will be the new menu of your son:) If you're getting tired of the taste test, I can do substitute for you :D happy PH and Merry Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  38. We live pretty near each other wor, I'll be his taster!!! :P

    ReplyDelete
  39. I totally agree with the healthier options in home cooked meals. I also do that more often that eat out. You must be very proud of your son!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Home cooked food is ALWAYS better than outside food and DEFINITELY better than fast food!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wah! Your son going to be a chef and open his own restaurant?

    ReplyDelete
  42. I can volunteer to be the food taster that is, if I drop by at Singapore! : )

    That would surely stop your waistline from expanding! Haha

    ReplyDelete
  43. Sorry I'm way behind in reading your posts, but I try to catch up.

    Just want to say we are two of a kind in this one too: I hate fast food and love to cook at home with my Diane. Hope one day to be able to invite you into our kitchen!
