Thank you all for the support…
Video presentation showcase – All you need to know about PORK – The Ultimate Guide to Pork Cuts – shared amongst our SHC participants.
TOPIC DISCUSSION of the Day
1. In many Cultures, women cook more than men. Why? Who did most of the cooking when you were growing up?
– Most of the participants’ feedback is WOMEN, remembering those were the days in the 60s where home kitchen is Mom’s territory – Dad goes to work while Mom stays home to raise the children and keep the house.
– A couple of participants mentioned hubby n brother, these ladies are the fortunate ones who do not have to wreck their brains but just savour instead.
– For me, professional kitchens still male dominated and women are doing such amazing stuff still fighting to get recognized in the culinary industry.
