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 did you come up with Genmaicha & Redbean Bundt Cake recipe?
I was experimenting with different flavours of bundt cake, and of course, we cannot leave out the classic pairing of Green Tea and Red Bean.
This month’s theme is about first love. Tell us why you chose MOKUREN / Genmaicha as your first love.
These are some of my old photos. Back then, it was my first time baking a bundt cake with MOKUREN / Genmaicha powder. I wasn't aware that there were so many types of green tea powder I thought it was matcha powder in general when I bought it at the grocery, but the rice cracker-like flavour drew my interest. I personally enjoy the toasty aroma of MOKUREN / Genmaicha powder. I'd say this is my first love among the product range. (Also, my recent favourite is the SUISEN / Genmai Latte).
