Hi, I am Menaka. I was a teacher for 18 years and after migrating to Australia accidentally I found an amazing lady called " Mary" who directed me to become a chef.I studied 3 years while working and became a qualified chef. After I studied about baking and hospitality management. My son is very enthusiastic in video editing and wanted me to start recording my cooking.Thats the beginning of you tube channel "The Culinary Corner" I am a full time employee. I record all the videos by my self. As a child I started helping and cooking with my granny and I used to experiment and trying various cooking styles. That led me in this path very smoothly. I still try to experiment and adjust recipes to move with this busy and globalised world.
