Why did you decide to write your book? Initially I wanted to capture my family's story and food, but then, as I got deeper into the concept, I realised that there is a real need to share this with others. I want to encourage the belief that food creates memories – it is more than just something used to satisfy hunger. It is about bringing friends and family together. My story shows how food for my family and most others is a reflection of who they are and what they are all about. I want to encourage others to learn more about their family stories and to cook with their family and friends to create memories.
