Mar­ion Grasby Cre­ator of the Mar­ion’s Kitchen

Thai-in­spired food range One of the most recog­nis­able faces – and names – from our league of SA con­tes­tants on Mar­ion Grasby has a strong foothold as a dar­ling of the food scene, more global than lo­cal with her own Thai food range and TV cook­ing show set in Thai­land. She has just re­leased her sec­ond book, ($39.99 Pan Macmil­lan). My favourite SA restau­rant... Fino in Wil­lunga. Best meal ever... a home-cooked fam­ily meal of curry and dahl that I shared with some won­der­ful new friends in Agra, In­dia. Worst meal ever tasted... the cheese and onion sand­wiches I had to eat in board­ing school. The most em­bar­rass­ing item in my fridge/pantry... straw­berry milk. One in­gre­di­ent I can’t live with­out... fish sauce. Favourite cook­book... Char­maine Solomon’s My last sup­per choice would be... Cof­fin Bay oys­ters with a squeeze of lemon, Sin­ga­pore black pep­per crab and Thai mango and sticky rice. A kitchen tool I can’t live with­out... the mor­tar and pes­tle my mother gave me when I first moved out of home. A bucket-list din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence I rec­om­mend... David Thomp­son’s Nahm restau­rant in Bangkok. It’s an ex­pe­ri­ence not to be missed. Guilty plea­sure... stand­ing in front of the fridge and scoff­ing spoon­fuls of left­over curry.

Fin­ish this sen­tence. Food is… joy­ful.
