our inspiration

Many paths, one thing in common: we love cooking with our families! Now we want to spread the word about family bonding through food!

our story

Rowena grew up in the kitchen - assisting, experimenting, exploring. Most importantly, she developed wonderful memories with her family in Malaysia. She had always intended to cook for fun with her children but working full time, preparing dinner together never happened. Dinner became just another way to put food on the table. In 2016, she realized her kids didn’t know how to chop an onion! She turned a personal #parentingfail into a #parentingwin! Rowena quit her job and started eat2explore – a way to make dinner together fun, tasty and easy while learning about different countries and their cuisines.
