In the kitchen with Wendy

A little about me:

My name is Wendy(@wendy.eats) and I’m a business analyst working in the tech sector who’s also a food influencer. My biggest passion all comes down to food! My dad used to be a chef for a few years and taught me to never be afraid of the kitchen. I love to try all cuisines and cook with different blends of sauces. In the past year I’ve also started on my baking journey and end up learning over 30+ different baked good recipes which includes a variety of cakes, bread, cookies and sweets.


Food means so much to me. I remember back in the days, when I would pack food to work / school – all I had was reusable food containers from takeouts and sometimes I would feel too embarrassed to even take it out in front of others. It also didn’t have any dividers so all the different sauces were just mixed together. On the other hand, Takenaka’s bento boxes brings food to life. Their bento boxes are so pretty that I would never feel embarrassed to bring food anywhere I go! I also love their cutlery set that comes with spoon, fork and even a knife in a beautiful container. With their bento boxes, I can pack delicious meat & veggie pairings or salad and fruits!
