With everyone told to stay indoors, cooking has become an enjoyable activity that many have adopted during the pandemic. For the second edition of Memento, we are joined by Archie Narendra, a young chef who has worked in several notable restaurants around the world, including Le 58 Tour Eiffel in Paris and The Hoxton in Amsterdam. Archie now devotes his time towards finding natural ingredients that can add zests of life to his dishes and today, he has graciously contributed several tracks to this column that remind him about the joys of cooking.

Irina has also asked her colleagues at Studiorama to contribute songs that they put on whenever they are creating in the kitchen, as well as the dishes that they feel fit well with those songs.
