This was a dish that my grandma, aunties and mum used to cook when I was a child
How old were you when you started cooking? I was about 15 when I baked my first cake from premixes.
Personal wish related to cooking: I wish to be able to bake and cook more often for my family and loved ones. It brings great joy to me to see them enjoy what I have

Like any comfort food, they tend to remind us of our childhood or certain memorable and happy moments in our lives. Mustard Green Pork Rice is one such dish for me.
This was a dish that my grandma, aunties and mum used to cook when I was a child. Each of them has their own version. Naturally, my mum’s version is my favourite. It is my all-time favourite comfort food.
Now that I am married, I cook this dish using my mum’s recipe to remind me of home. It comforts my heart as I think of happy and carefree days of my childhood, and warms my tummy as I savour the delicious combination of juicy mustard greens and the flavoursome rice.
