Clarissa Feildel was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where she grew up surrounded by a love for food. Clarissa moved to Australia in her 20s and missed her mother’s home cooking, so began to replicate the dishes from her childhood and is now an amazing self-taught cook. She co-authored the book More Please! (2016) with Manu, taking her delicious home food to a larger audience. The same delicious home food you can now sample with FoodSt.

Beef Rendang with Rice

On Clarissa’s menu you will find traditional Malay style, homecooked Beef Rendang with Rice. Clarissa shares:

“I grew up having Rendang as a kid. It’s a special dish to us as we have it mostly during Malaysian new year as it takes very long to cook due to the processes involved. Each household has their special twist on this dish and our recipe is has been passed down from my mother – full of flavour and lots of sauce.”

Manu’s dish: Moroccan Chicken Tagine with Couscous

Manu comes from a long line of great cooks – his great grandfather was a pastry chef, his grandfather and father were chefs, his cousin is a chef in the United States and his mother is a great cook. By the time he turned 15, Manu had started as an apprentice in his father’s restaurant. After a year, he progressed to a fine dining restaurant where he finished his apprenticeship. Today, he is best known as co-host of the popular reality cooking show, ‘My Kitchen Rules’. Manu has also published four books: Manu’s French Kitchen (2011), Manu’s French Bistro (2012), French for Everyone (2014) and More Please! (2016).

Moroccan Chicken Tagine with Couscous

Manu’s Chicken Tagine was inspired by his love of North African and Middle Eastern food. Manu shares:

“Chicken is the meat of the world so I wanted to make it interesting and bring a taste of Morocco to Australia that people would recognise. This dish has become a family favourite of ours which we make on a fortnightly basis as its such an easy yet delicious dish to replicate.”

Talking food and family with Manu Fiedel

We chat with Manu Fiedel about cooking at home with his six-year-old daughter, Charlee (already a budding chef!), and his partnership with FoodSt.

Do you get your daughter involved in the cooking?

Yes, very much so! She innately loves cooking herself so it’s not hard to get her on the pan. However, she prefers cooking with her Papa as apparently, he’s the Chef!!!

What advice would you give to parents wanting to get their kids involved in the kitchen (top 3 tips)…

  1. Start with an easy recipe – with two or three ingredients perhaps and always make it fun for them, cracking eggs usually does it or decorating a cupcake.
  2. Make them cook their favourite dish with you is another good place to start. Let them experiment with their taste buds and talk them through it so they start understanding flavours.
  3. Give them the responsibility to make their own dish. It’s the best way for them to try what goes well together and what doesn’t. And yes, you have to try it too!

Why did you want to partner with FoodSt?

The difference with FoodSt is the home-cooked dishes. These aren’t dishes by a restaurant but are created by talented cooks who may have lost jobs and doing it tough over the past few years. Everyone involved in FoodSt pulls from their culture and heritage to cook their meals and the result is delicious, traditional home-cooked food made with pride and love.

What FoodSt meals have you tried and loved by their regular cooks?

I have tried the lasagne, the chicken and fried noodle, butter chicken and the mulligatawny soup. All of which I love!

The frustration of a lack of time and healthy home-cooked meal options prompted Northern Beaches based ex-chef and home cook Lorraine Gnanadickam, alongside her husband, Sanjay Gnanadickam, to found FoodSt. They now offer a huge range of home-delivered meals that are cooked by accredited home cooks with a broad range of cuisines to choose from, including Italian, Indian, Australian, Mexican, French, Asian, African and more.
