About "Your Outsourced Kitchen"

 

It can be tough in Hong Kong to juggle a busy schedule with eating well. Add kids and a family to the mix and it’s often a recipe for expensive takeout bills and a diet that is less than desirable. Maayan Schwartz recognized this as she was searching for good meals while working AND raising three children. Fortunately, she has a domestic helper, which has helped ease the burden. “My helper is often involved in the cooking process and I was eager to delegate some of the cooking to her, although I found that most recipe books have too much text or the recipe wasn’t clear and concise enough for someone with basic cooking skills to follow,” she says.
