The one ingredient I can’t live without is … Real vanilla. I love the amazing Heilala vanilla syrup.
I have $20 and four people to feed, I’m making … scrummy baked potatoes topped with stir-fried mushrooms and slithers of beef mixed in a creamy sauce. Salad too.
I’m tired and hungry so I am ordering takeaways from … Yoku Sushi on Devonport Rd, Tauranga – my favourite is anything with salmon in it .
The person I’d most like to cook for is … John Key.
The best meal I have ever eaten was … in a little restaurant at Hoi On in Vietnam. It was a prawn and vegetable stir-fry. I love Vietnamese food.
Oh dear, it’s my last meal, I’m eating … a huge serving of chocolate cake drizzled in caramel with heaps and heaps of fresh raspberries.
