Kilo Under Pressure with Lloyd Moffatt
by Rachel Lim
@ 01 Jul 2016
With hopes to allow amateur chefs and home cooks to take charge of a professional kitchen, Kilo Under Pressure was born. This year, Lloyd Moffatt, a young Australian currently working in finance, will be taking over the Kilo Kallang kitchen on Thursday, 7th July.
Through a public open call, a series of interviews and tastings, Moffatt beat 6 other contenders and will be in charge of the Kilo Kallang Kitchen with the help of the professional kitchen staff.
Unlike the other chefs, Lloyd doesn’t have any fond memories of home-cooked food while growing up. Lloyd’s first experience in the kitchen, then, started with something simple: chicken wings. From there, his interest in cooking snowballed, and these days he’s taken on the role of the “default cook” each Christmas, whipping up feasts for around 20 people. Perhaps a reflection of his simple beginnings in the kitchen, Lloyd’s cooking style may embrace complex techniques, but is ultimately unpretentious. On his mind: hearty mushroom and leek croquettes, homemade raviolis, and a rustic apple and rhubarb pie to finish it off. “It’s going to be nice enough to impress the neighbours, but not so fancy that Grandma won't eat it.”
