Family time doesn’t only consist of overseas family trips or dining out at restaurants. The best time to bond together can also happen in the humble kitchen at home. We speak to Danielle Peita Graham, model and author of cookbook ‘On The Table at Home’ on her love for home cooked meals and cooking together as a family.
Growing up in a mixed heritage household of a Chinese mother and Irish father, she was exposed to the best of Eastern and Western food and its customs. From an early age, the multi-hyphenate consistently helped her parents in the kitchen. “My mother would always supervise with care, watching every chopping move. Food was my mother’s way of showing her love for us,” Danielle explains. “My Dad’s delicious roast Sunday lunches were legendary. I remember him cooking hearty roast lamb with potatoes of course and there were always greens on a plate.”
