ABOUT KIMBERLEY ASHLEE CUACHON-HAUGH
“I recall the juncture when food became more than just a living necessity. I was sitting nose-length from the television watching the Two Fat Ladies a television program on the BBC starring Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Paterson. The two of them traveled across the United Kingdom in a Watsonian double-wide sidecar cooking for different people and basking in their satisfaction with a cigarette. I was enthralled with the entire cooking process. I knew that I wanted to do that for people.
Being of Filipino decent, cooking has always been much more than a familial past time but was a way to support a very large family. Both my grandmothers, single mothers, cooked to earn a living. It was what they knew. So, they cooked out of their homes to collect a small profit. Today my dad owns his own restaurant in Toronto.
With my passion for cooking, I was unlike most children my age. I spent my summers cooking my way through cookbooks and experimenting my creations with my parents who spent long days at the office. I worked in both independently-owned and chain restaurants, as well as in the the catering department of an international hotel chain.
Now I spend even more time in the kitchen cooking with my husband who shares the same affection for food as I do. Hours can pass while we are in the kitchen without us knowing it as we continue to learn more about food and each other.”
