INTERVIEW WITH @greatescape_v

The mix of savoury and sweet dishes in your Instagram looks stunning! When did your passion for food begin?
I grew up surrounded by many varieties of food as my family and relatives work in the food industry. My favourite memory is when my dad would bring me to the international food trade exhibitions and visit the production plants whenever he had an overseas business trip. I also enjoy watching cooking shows since I was young, it inspired me to craft things with my own hands. It is the feeling of satisfaction after seeing the result of my hard work that gets me.
What's your biggest challenge in creating these mouth-watering recipes?
Usually, I would draw and write down the ideas before making any dishes. However, sometimes the food may not turn out like how I wanted it to taste or look. Even so, I learned to keep trying and not give up. Eventually, it will turn out amazing!
Personal tips for your recipe viewers when working with Matcha recipes.
It was my first time experiencing different types of matcha powder. naturally, it took me a long time to understand and distinguish the differences. Each and every one has it's own distinct flavour profile. You definitely have to try them all as everyone has their own preferences of taste.
How do you come up with Genmai Love Letters (Kuih Kapit) recipe?
I like to collect antique items. Months ago, my friend helped me to buy the antique Kuih Kapit mould during her travel to Malacca. She’s been asking me to make her the snacks.
How did you find using SUISEN / Genmai powder for this recipe?
Genmai powder has been stealing my heart for a while now. By adding this ingredient, It definitely adds an extra layer of savoury toasted rice cracker flavour to the traditional recipe.

110ml of Coconut Milk (Fresh)
