About Emily Rand:
Emily Rand is the founder / organiser / head chef of RANDE Pop Up.
Known as “Randy” by her friends (hence RANDE), Emily is extensively trained in the art of cooking. After acquiring an Easy Bake Oven (complete with donut making mix) age 6, she moved on to master eggs benedict at age 9.
Thereafter she learned to cook by watching her food obsessed family make and consume the most delicious meals.
Grandma Junie taught her how to knead a proper sandwich bread. Isabel dutifully showed her how to make the perfect tart. Uncle Price did lessons in pasta alla norma, smokey dhal and spear fishing. Her father taught biscuits & gravy – while her mother did lemon snow with crème anglaise.
And to finish it all off … Uncle Rick opened her eyes to food fanaticism… and, of course, margaritas!
Now THAT is a classical training at its best!
And then, in January 2019, Emily embarked on an adventure to Mexico City. Armed with her High School Spanish and a recently developed passion for Mexican Netflix dramas, she entered Quintonil – 11th best restaurant… in the world.
It wasn’t easy (think many, many nights of tears) but after 2 months at Quintonil, in one of the toughest kitchen s in the world, in one of the toughest cities in the world, Emily emerged with exceptional knowledge of Mexican profanities and the cooking skills and determination of a master kitchen ninja.
