餐廳裡有很多前線的可人兒為你服務,但廚房走出來的卻少有女性的身影。隨著近年食/甜品的流行,Facebook 內你總有幾個朋友,不時將自己用心煮出的美食拍照分享。如果那個是你,或者你有喜愛煮食的朋友,Lakshmi Harilela 的經歷可能為你帶來一點啟示。今天的 Lakshmi Harilela 擁有幾個身份,既是 HKU SPACE的兼職導師,亦是烹飪課導師。

 

少少背景

Lakshmi Harilela 在1999年於香港完成中學課程後往瑞士以及美國升學,其後回港於香港怡東酒店擔任調酒員及廚師,香港洲際酒店擔任烘焙師及主管廚師 (Line Chef) ,現於自己開設的餐廳提供私人廚師等不同的服務。

 

酒店工作與自立門戶的開始

Lakshmi Harilela 工作過的兩家酒店,均會為廚師提供培訓及技術交流的機會,例如廚師比賽。不過,酒店要求的餐桌禮儀和菜式都有一套標準。雖然廚師都有鑽研和分享菜式的機會,不過多數情況都是跟從酒店要求,為客人烹調既定的菜式。另帶一提,香港的酒店廚師可以由初級做起,月薪約15,000萬元,晉升機會與資歷相關,也重創意。

為了在餐桌服務和菜式上有更多發揮空間,Lakshmi Harilela 開始自立門戶,做她喜愛的有機私房菜。2004年的香港人不像今天般著重健康,以前年輕人在周末會相約去唱K,今日就會去跑步。2004年Lakshmi Harilela 主打有機私房菜,食足幾年西北風,當時很多人連有機 (Organic) 是什麼都不知道。為了客人可享有較多用膳空間,唯有將自己的用武之地闢得有幾小得幾小,在陝小的廚房內烹煮食物是Lakshmi Harilela沒有在酒店中遇過的。就像手機程式一樣,5年前已經有人開發,今天手持5年手機程式開發經驗的人已是行內老手。Lakshmi Harilela 10年多前就做有機烹調的開荒牛,今天已有一班捧場客。

 

記得她提了一句

餐廳或酒店內的工作五花百門,廚師也分好幾種,酒店廚師的晉升制度較分明,初級廚師兩年左右升一級,之後就看實力和際遇。了解自己的目標,然後就一步步前進吧!

Friends of the Earth

Check it out. Did a talk for Friends of the Earth regarding a vegetarian diet and how to cook healthy vegetarian food and make it tasty according to the principles of Ayurveda. We are all unique, and so our eating styles should be according to our unique constitution. This is why generic diets or lifestyle changes seldom work. Ayurveda notes that each individual should listen to their genetic code and vikruti to determine the types of foods that will bring the body back into alignment.

Gokul Vegetarian Review

There comes a time in everyone's life when one considers the thought of becoming a vegetarian . Like many before me, there have been many cravings of meat after the transition to vegetarianism.

Practicing yoga for some time now I think that vegetarianism really helps the mind and the clarity, not to mention the body and flexibility. 

As a chef myself I find it very difficult to cook meat but not eat it. The saying that you must try what you eat is not very relevant for a vegetarian chef. Due to my ethical principles right now I just can't bring myself to break this vegetarianism.

So whilst I was in Singapore for just one night I tried a vegetarian restaurant called Gokuls. They have a range of Malaysian, Chinese and Indian vegetarian items.

My Masi Dolly brought me and my sister there. We ordered the chicken rice Hainan style, of course vegetarian, The mutton Roganosh which was vegetarian as well, vegetarian satays and lastly a mee Siam, a dish indigenous to Malaysia with the sour yet sweet aftertaste. 

Being a foodie, I found the food to be spectacular. The flavors were so good that you didn't even know you were not eating meat. In fact, all those cravings of fried chicken wings and mutton that I've had in the past clearly vanished away whilst I savored the beautiful flavors of this food. So in truth, being a vegetarian is not that bad when you have access to restaurants such as this. Now the question of whether this is healthy for you can be a debate. However how healthy is meat anyway?

Not only is being vegetarian  good for your health, but it's good for the economy, ecology and every part of the earth.  (less methane gas in the atmosphere if you know what I mean)!

So now I'm stuck between either serving meat at my private kitchen here in Hong Kong or converting it to a fully vegetarian place of dining. Any opinions would be well noted. I just need to get those recipes down, and I'm sure I will have a following a vegetarian patrons. 

I wish you the best food journey and I do hope that one day you will consider becoming a vegetarian; helping our earth and ourselves. Not only is it practical but it also can help with the starvation problem in the world, and the disease so aren't in society such as obesity, type two diabetes and heart disease. 

If you're still not convinced I urge you to try it out for yourself!!!
