A lot of my blogger friends know Luan, the Extra Virgin Chef. The very first time I read her blog and her story, I was so very impressed with this lady who gave up her 20-year high-flying corporate career as a communications practitioner to learn to cook?! With great determination and passion, she worked as a kitchen intern in 2 restaurants and in between the 2 stints, enrolled and completed a course with At-Sunrice Global Chef Academy. A truly inspirational story.
Although we visited and left comments on each other's blog, exchanged emails and whatsapp messages, arranged to meet up for some foodie event, I had never met Luan in person until today.
Kerbside Gourmet is Singapore's first gourmet food truck that doubles as a social enterprise. They are committed to whip up 4000 home-cooked meals for the needy for every thousand meals sold. In addition, a portion of the profits will also go to charity.
Luan changes the menu periodically. She embraces the sous-vide cooking method (Yum, I like) and that is evident in the food that she served. The current menu includes pea puree with sous vide egg, sous vide chicken/duck salad and cold mentaiko angel hair pasta.
We enjoyed the refreshing dining experience, the first in Singapore, and most importantly, I finally met the lady who has truly inspired me.
Go support Kerbside, support Luan.
