INTERVIEW WITH KATELYN OF @KATFEWD


First things first, what is @katfewd all about?

@katfewd started off as a little Instagram page where I would share my cooking adventures and document my trials and errors along the way. As my number of recipes grew, it made sense to start a blog where I recipe develop and share my favourite recipes!

How did your passion with cooking start and what kind of foods are you most passionate about?

I started cooking during my gap year in order to (attempt) to eat less instant noodles in my first year of university, and realised I had so much fun in the kitchen! I love baking and experimenting with new recipes; you’ll find me getting my hands dirty kneading dough or watching food videos on YouTube for hours on end!

I love all food — so there’s all sorts of things I make, but in general I try to eat quite healthily! I enjoy finding ways to give my favourite foods healthy twists using more nutritious ingredients. I’m also a big believer in supporting local produce and brands, which I incorporate into my cooks and bakes as much as possible!

Aside from creating recipes, what do you do in your daily life?

I’m currently still in university, but other than that I enjoy being outdoors (definitely have to exercise to burn off those calories from trying out new recipes!) I also love spending time with (and cooking for) my family and friends and playing with my 14-year-old chihuahua, Scruffy.

How did you come up with Matcha Granola recipe?

Granola is one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast or just as a snack, and I especially love it with Matcha!

What do you like about working with Niko Neko Matcha / Houjicha / Genmaicha powder when creating your recipes?

I find Niko Neko powders blend amazingly with all kinds of milks without being powdery or clumpy, creating the perfect matcha latte or baked good! I’ve used it in everything from bread to overnight oats to tarts and it works every time!

Personal tips for your recipe viewers when working with Matcha recipes.

Be creative and go all out! Matcha powder is definitely a hidden gem in baking. Not only does it taste delicious but it is also full of all the good stuff — antioxidants, vitamins and minerals! Not to mention, with its vibrant shade of green it makes your cakes and tarts look divine!
