My name is Karni Tomer and I’m passionate about food. People tell me I should stop talking about it all the time – but I can’t help myself!
I talk, teach and dream food, which has been my passion as long as I can remember. My culinary adventure in Singapore started when my husband’s work relocated to this exciting island. In my three day visit to look around I visited a wet market, ate the most delicious chicken biriani in Little India, was introduced to the best chilli crab and had a luxurious high tea at Raffles Hotel.
At that point my mind was already made up! Two months later we were on the plane bound for a food lovers’ paradise – proving that sometimes dreams really do come true!
From that day since I haven’t stopped exploring Singapore and unearthing its culinary secrets. Like an inquisitive child, I’m always learning something new - from a local chef, hawker stall owner or fishmonger. Every day I discover another amazing dish, and each time I say to myself, “this is the best thing I have ever eaten!”
I am thrilled to be able to share with you my excitement and my passion, whether it’s on a wet market tour, buying fresh produce and cooking a meal at my small atelier nearby or strolling down satay street for a midnight snack.
