And what made us think of doing this? My journey towards becoming a chef started in my kitchen and has wound through more than 25 countries with notable stopovers in Paris where I became a Pastry Chef from the world’s best culinary school i.e Le Cordon Bleu, and Kyoto, Japan where I stayed on to learn the pursuit of perfection in cooking.
Married with this pursuit of cooking was my day job to market Whirlpool appliances – as a global product manager I travelled across the world peeking regularly into the lives of homemakers to understand their challenges, joys and sorrows. I regularly came across people wanting advise on what to buy and also saw how most people did not make the best use of the fancy equipment they had paid top dollar for !
So, in a nutshell – I understand how important precision and technique is when it comes to cooking, say baking complicated desserts, and have over the years experimented and discovered for myself which equipment is best for doing what. In this blog and at our store we help you decide what to buy and then how to get the best out of the equipment once you have bought it. We are more interested in the post purchase journey of yours and hence hope we can help you make the most of these beautiful equipments.
