Biography

Other than a seasoned home chef, a host of private dinners and a catering chef, Charmaine is also the F&B Director of the social enterprise which she helped founded called Moving Concepts. With that she is in charge of designing dinner menus for guests and is the main cook in all the events. Charmaine is also now a cooking instructor at DayDayCook and also a contract KOL there where she demonstrates simple and delicious dishes in weekly videos to show people that western cooking can be easily done at home and entertaining guests is not a daunting thing to do.

Raised in Vancouver, Canada, Charmaine has adopted a very chilled and laid back lifestyle. She developed her passion for cooking while she hosted many house parties for her family and friends throughout her high school and university years. Charmaine is always in search of new food and wine ideas. She lived in Shanghai for a year and travelled to France and Spain to learn about the local cultures and cuisines in the past years.

“It is a beautiful thing when a career and passion come together.”

Chef Charmaine 當日早3個鐘頭到就到我屋企準備,我見佢人仔細細拎埋隻鑊黎!我就好其問佢點解要咁做啦?我都有鑊啦,點解咁重仲要帶?佢就解釋返,佢依隻鑊專係做西班牙海鮮飯架,比平常嘅鑊薄......(其他好處唔記得)!

前菜樣樣都好正,特別係蝦同個麵包!
個椰菜花湯就咁飲都好好飲,加埋脆脆嘅辣肉腸,簡直係畫龍點睛!
而主角海鮮飯,簡單係無得彈,好多料,D海鮮好新鮮!
甜品就不過不失啦!
