Our Inspiration

Rowena started eat2explore for her children and other busy families like hers. Two years ago, during a family cooking class, she discovered that although her kids love to travel and try different cuisines, they couldn’t even chop an onion!

She grew up cooking with her family back in Malaysia and those are some of her fondest memories. However, being a working mom juggling her kids’ busy schedules and still making sure dinner is on the table after work, she forgot the joy of taking a break and having fun cooking together as a family. She realized that there must be many more out there just like her – people who are missing this opportunity to create lasting memories at home.

Mealtime should be an experience and cooking is a life-skill everyone should have! Since home economics is no longer part of the curriculum at school, hands-on cooking and culture explorations is even more important in today’s world.

As a child in Malaysia, Rowena and her family would cook lunch together each Sunday, letting her practice what she learned in home economics class. “Because I had a familiarity in the kitchen and good knife skills, I had a lot of independence as a teenager. Cooking is a life skill, and we are no longer preparing our own kids in this way.”

“Why dumb kids’ food down? Their palates are just as sophisticated as ours — they just need to be developed.”

“If you make something with your own hands, you are much more likely to try it and over time you will develop your palate.”
