Is Life a Recipe is a Singapore Food Blog. Do you think it is a strange title for a blog? I am Brian Kennett and I am about to explain the why… 

Food is such an important component of our lives, but I believe we take it for granted at times. Everything is now available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We have restaurants that serve pre-cooked, pre-packaged food and are open 24 hours a day. Why do we eat without thinking about what we’re eating, when we’re eating, where we’re eating, or even who we’re dining with? We miss the meals’ origins, culture, history, and regional variations.

We “fast-food” it, bypassing the neighbourhood food court, street vendor, or hawker right outside our door. Is it simply that we are hesitant to taste the local cuisine because of its unpredictability in terms of cleanliness? Do we reluctant to try new foods because we don’t like the way the dish looks? We might not want to sit among the “natives

Thanks to...

I owe a great debt of gratitude to my mother and grandmother for instilling confidence in me in the kitchen from a young age. Thanks to Da’s Thai Restaurant in Margate, England, for my first taste of Asian cuisine. To Asia for introducing me to the multitude of food alternatives and ingredients available here. My gratitude goes to my wife and children for their unwavering support. Congratulations to my friends for allowing me to experiment on them on a regular basis.

My credentials...

I pride myself on being potentially one of the only Singaporean food bloggers that have actually walked the walk not just talked the talk and used others to write the talking for them…

Origins...

I started this Singapore food blog to document my family life, travel, and eating adventures while living in Asia. When I travel to a new nation, I consume the local cuisine. To eat the “hand me downs” and generations-old recipes. I’m desperate to meet the individuals who are cooking it, and I’m anxious to get the recipes. But 99 percent of the time, they never come forward because it is their great, great grandmother’s recipe or something along those lines. 

I jot down my impressions in a notepad and return home to try to duplicate them in my own unique way. This site includes not only my own recipes, but also restaurant reviews and family experiences.

As a poet once said...

Eating and dining is a communal activity that is central to our social lives, both within the family and beyond.

It is over the dinner table that memories are made,

Deals are conducted,

Pain is shared …

We romance, bond, fight and celebrate …

Is Life a Recipe? I think it is…

ENJOY!!!
