What is your cooking experience? My cooking is ‘Awesome’, even the smoke alarm cheers me on. So what would your cooking signature dish be? Happy to have a crack at anything, in fact many people have eaten in my kitchen and have gone on to lead relatively normal lives.
Why are you cooking to help disadvantaged kids get a fair start in education? It makes your heart sad when you think of these kids are going to school without shoes. I don’t mind putting myself out there a bit to help them out. I know my team will back me for such a good cause.
