WHAT INGREDIENTS IN YOUR PANTRY CAN’T YOU LIVE WITHOUT?
It is impossible for me not to have any ground paprika or any fresh herb in my pantry. Paprika is versatile while a fresh herb can complement or transform something as simple as an omelette.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE KITCHEN APPLIANCE?
Definitely has to be a hand blender.
THE ONE KITCHEN GADGET YOU ARE EYEING IS...
A dishwashing machine.
WHICH IS THAT CHALLENGING BUT SATISFYING DISH YOU MAKE?
- Patients alarmed as testing reagents run out of stock frequently
- Criminalising deliberate spread of HIV is legal, High Court rules
- Drinking water is not the only way to stay hydrated
Lasagna can be so tedious to make. However, it is such a joy to devour.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE RECIPES?
Currently, I am really loving my saucy drumsticks and my easy no-bake loaded potato mainly because they are a low-effort and high-reward meal. Both of these recipes and tips can be found on my YouTube channel, Mandi Sarro.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO START A YOUTUBE CHANNEL?
Do not bite off more than you can chew. Do not overcommit to buying tons of equipment in order to create YouTube content. You can always start with what you have and grow.
WHAT DO YOU KNOW NOW THAT YOU WISH YOU KNEW BEFORE STARTING ON YOUTUBE EIGHT YEARS AGO?
I did not know that when I started, I was building a digital production house. New media has completely shaken the global scene.
WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE FUTURE OF FOOD GIVEN GLOBAL WARMING AND ALL?
Food supply will be drastically affected.
