<p>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.<br /> 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”<br /> I am a full time employee. I record all the videos by my self.<br /> 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.</p>
