During the recent circuit breaker, a lot of bored Singaporeans started cooking at home. Young lawyer, Liow Xuan Rong, 25, was one of them. She was called to the Bar last August, and had been working full-time in corporate law when Covid-19 hit. “We were working from home every day during the circuit breaker, and I started to experiment [with cooking] on weekends since there was nothing to do,” says Xuan Rong, a self-professed avid home cook. “I was making a lot of food and posting them on Instagram. My friends said, ‘Oh, I’d love to try this’,” she recalls.
