Kelly Siew, 31, singer/food blogger
Submission video recipe: Ayam masak merah with cauliflower nasi tomato
Why should you be our first R.AGE Food Fight champion?
Because I am obsessed with all things food! I love writing about it, reading about it, talking about it, and most of all I love eating and cooking. So this is an opportunity for me to learn what I can from the professionals and in turn, share that with my audience.
What do you currently do?
At the moment, I’m a full-time singer. I perform about five times a week, and during the day I teach music to school kids. I also run a blog called kellysiewcooks.com, so it keeps me on my toes all the time and is pretty exciting.
What is your most favourite dish to make?
It’s something simple and low-carb – cauliflower rice. It’s like fried rice, but with cauliflower instead of rice and has a lot of veggies to keep it healthy.
What food do you absolutely hate?
There are very, very few things I won’t eat but I would say that I avoid durian because of the aftertaste.
Best piece of cooking advice ever received?
The best piece of cooking advice has to do with plating – keep everything as clean and as elegant as possible.
What is your biggest pet peeve in the kitchen?
Probably has to do with disturbance. You know how there are backseat drivers? I don’t like backseat cooks. If there’s someone who is constantly telling me what to do, that would get on my nerves.
