Celebrating Fathers who Cook with Love
THIS FATHER'S DAY, we're celebrating dads - not just the ones who bring home the bacon, but the ones who'd flip it and make the family breakfast. We celebrate dads who cook up storms in kitchens and are proud to feed their families oh so well.
Known to most given their celebrity status as famous chefs on TV, Gordon Ramsay and Jamie Oliver are fine examples of fathers who never fail to show their love in the kitchen with their Brady bunches.
While Ramsay is known for his fiery temper on his reality TV shows, a peek into his family life reveals a softer side to the chef. The father of four teenagers playfully embarrasses his kids in 'Matilda and the Ramsay Bunch', a TV show hosted by Ramsay's youngest, 16-year-old Matilda. See his fatherly side as he whips up moreish easy-to-cook meals with his kids in 'Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Home Cooking'.
On the other hand, Jamie Oliver is known for his well-intentioned "Food Revolution", with a mission to give every child the food they deserve. Likewise, he is generous with his 5 kids, often including them in his shows and letting them help with the cooking.
Moving closer to home, dads who take on the role as the cook at home are often seen as inspirational role models, feeding their families to the envy of many.
Local Mediacorp actor Ben Yeo actively shares about the meals he prepares for his sons. Having published a cookbook, the SHATEC (Singapore Hotel and Tourism Education Centre) graduate takes the lead as a young father, taking the initiative to share his love for food with his two sons while running his food enterprises.
In spite of his busy schedule as a Mediacorp artiste, Yeo still finds the time to cook with his elder son, Javier. He believes this helps "build a bond between parent and child" and we couldn't agree more. If you're hoping to start cooking for the young ones at your home, check out Yeo's debut cookbook, 'Cooking For Kids' for a tip or two.
