1.  Tell us a little bit about your background and how you got into cooking?

My background is French Cuisine & Patisserie having learned from Le Cordon Bleu while I was in Sydney. Cooking has always been one of my curious boxes that I needed to tick since I was a kid. Studying abroad, I got to cook more and more for myself and friends and I fell in love with it! I decided to take the course and that’s how it all started.

2. What is MARS KITCHEN? What is the philosophy behind the food?

Mars Kitchen is not a kitchen from planet Mars! It’s an abbreviation of Marinka's kitchen. Our motto is food with purpose. The philosophy of the food is that healthy eating can be affordable. Healthy eating doesn't have to taste bad and we provide that for everyone especially gluten free cakes for children with autism. We create food which taste as "normal" as regular food with healthier and mostly organic ingredients.

3. What are most popular dishes at Mars Kitchen?

All our food is delicious, but I would say our Organic Chicken Burger, Sweet Potato Fries, Chicken Curry and Gluten Free Cakes are the most popular dishes at Mars Kitchen.

4. What do you think about Jakarta's food scene and where is it going next?

The Jakarta’s food scene is growing pretty slow and it is always very seasonal. I have always said and I will stick to my guns that "healthy is hip" is going to be the next trend in Jakarta. I encourage everyone to have a more balanced and healthy diet.

5. What are some of your favorite food in Jakarta?

I love all food that is made with love and care. But for Indonesian food, I  especially love Nasi Uduk and Ketoprak.

6. What are your other passions in life outside of food?

My other passion in life is developing spiritual growth, traveling and reading at the moment. I also love a bit of karaoke and martial arts!
