About

Welcome to the Kin & Kith Kitchen, my latest food adventure.

Born into a family of cooks of Hainanese descent, my passion for food took root at an early age. My grandfather was a sailor and a cook while my parents made a living selling Hainanese chicken rice back in the day. It was through observing my parents that I picked up my cooking skills as a young child. Preparing Hainanese cuisine has since become second nature to me. 

I approach every new dish with curiosity and would attempt to recreate them back home and share my creations with my kin and kith. It brings me a sense of joy whenever I see others enjoy my food. 

 

For 14 years, I worked at a hospital as a nursing aide at the Gynaecology department. For the next 29 years, I ran a small food business and have since retired. In the next chapter of my life, I hope to continue on my journey with food by sharing with others and the younger generation the fading tradition of Hainanese cuisine as well as Singaporean local delights.

I specialise in Hainanese cuisine, confinement meals (I am certified by WINGS-KKH), home-cooked dishes, hawker delights, guiding new domestic helpers in the preparation of home-cooked meals and mentoring budding hawkers in kick starting a food business.      

This is the story of my food journey.

Heart to palate, a plate at a time.

你好!我叫泰娟,Amy。Kin & Kith Kitchen 是我最新的美食计划。我希望我准备的食物能继续滋养亲人,新或老朋友的灵魂。

 

我热爱烹饪,喜欢到处品尝美食和旅游。

 

我的祖籍是海南,父母以卖海南鸡饭谋生。我从小跟在父母身旁观摩他们认真煮食的模样,打下了烹饪的基础。耳濡目染地对海南菜了如指掌,也喜欢烹煮不同籍贯的菜肴。

 

当我吃到好吃的美食,我就会记在脑海,回到家就尝试将食物合化为盘中餐,与朋友,家人分享。看着他们吃得津津有味,自己就有一股幸福感。

 

毕业后第一份工作,在医院从事妇产科助理看护的工作。14年后,我转换跑道,自己创业,从事了29年的杂菜饭小生意。现在退休了,想圆自己的梦想,要把自己的厨艺于美食毫无保留地传承于下一代。

 

我的专长包括海南美食,坐月子菜(WINGS-KKH认证),家庭式菜肴,小贩美食,教导女拥煮出一手好菜。如那些想创业,如卖杂菜饭,经济米粉的年轻人,我也可以传授受益。

 

期待您参于我的美食之旅!
