Shirt: Four Pocket Navy - Kotone


Savouring the delicacy of Indonesian spices into mouthwatering foods is one of the many great talent Renatta owned.  


CHEF RENATTA? OR SHOULD I JUST CALL YOU RENNA!

Renna hahaha

 

IF YOU COULD INTRODUCE YOURSELF AS ANYONE, WHO WOULD YOU BE?

Renatta. I would love to be Renatta.


SINCE WHEN DO YOU START COOKING?

It started as a hobby when I was in kindergarten, but then it became my profession since high school. If you asked me how my food looked like back then, I could assure you it was non-representational.


DO YOU PREFER BREAKFAST, BRUNCH, LUNCH OR DINNER?

Fairly, I like both brunch and dinner, but if you force me to choose, I’d say dinner. For the reason that I feel like dinner is the day of the meal. You can have almost everything at dinner time, because you know it won't be very amusing if you eat steak at lunch or breakfast. I once had a striking dinner memories back when I was intern in Paris. My family and I got free dinner in a fancy restaurant, 12 courses for each of us, wines and all of that, you know?  I thought I wanted to pay for my mom and my sister, as a thank you for them. Yet, it turns out I've never had to pay for the meals, it was a treat from my Chef.


WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FOOD?

To be honest, I really am clueless about this question. But, if I have to answer that, my fave food would be animal-based food, nothing specific for the meat, its just every single part of them is good. No offense vegetarians.


WHAT IS THE EASIEST MEAL TO COOK?

Indomie. Although it seems like my Indomie is kind of complicated, I just put everything in and combine it. Voila, it turns out to be flavorful.


DO YOU HAVE ANY SECRET RECIPE?

Humm nope, I always create new menus, and can’t remember anything after that.

BESIDES COOKING, WHAT IS YOUR HOBBY?

I like music. I don’t really play instruments, but I like chillin in a blues bar, jamming to songs, and dancing.

 

DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL TUNE YOU LISTENED TO WHEN YOU COOK?

Usually I listen to blues, like B.B King, or sometimes just old jazz or swings.

  

NAME 3 THINGS YOU LIKE THE MOST ABOUT JAKARTA?

Hmm that’s a tough question. I think its the people in Indonesia, the practicality of things around here. Like you can just plastic every everythings and put them in a refrigerator and definitely the Gojek, cause you know, once you gojek you can never go back hahahaha. 

 

WHAT KIND OF FASHION TREND ARE YOU IN?

I am not in to fashion actually, I mean, I like wearing clothes that make me look good. Its just that I’m not into any specific genre of fashion, I wear casuals almost every time. Long socks at the maximum, and all unisex clothing.

 

SING OR COOK?

Cook.

 

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR FUN?

Hmm, its really really hard. What do I do for fun? Anything to be honest. I am not into clubs, but I am really into bars, I like just sitting down and listen to music that are not too loud. Actually, I also enjoy walking or playing with my weirdo pomerian.

 

IF YOU COULD ASK ANYONE TO TRAVEL WITH YOU RIGHT NOW, WHO WOULD IT BE?

I’ll take my man, simply just to travel around Europe. Owing to the fact that I was living in Paris quiet a bit, but I never have a chance to travel around during my busy schedule of working.

 

WHAT IS YOUR MOST FAVORITE CHILDHOOD SONG?

Tepung Beras Rosebrand? Hahahahahhaa it was a joke between me and my sister, it never gets old.

 

DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTION FOR PEOPLE WHO LIKES TO COOK AND WANTED TO BE A GOOD CHEF?

I think people need to be more product base, instead of just surf through the internet saying “that’s look fun” or “I have to make that”, you should really try to see the ingredients. Like go to the supermarket, and see what’s good, or checking the seasonal ingredients, and just mix match. After that, you can decide what to do with those, so you are not only following order from the recipe written in internet. Besides it will be very good for practicing your creativity. 




"Sebenernya, emang saya suka masak, dan ibu enggak bisa masak sama sekali, jadi waktu itu mikirnya “harus ada yang bisa masak nih di rumah”."


MAU DI PANGGIL CHEF RENATTA ATAU RENNA?

Renna hahaha

 

KALAU KAMU BISA MENGENALKAN DIRIMU JADI SIAPA SAJA, KAMU MAU JADI SIAPA?

Renatta. I would love to be Renatta.


SEJAK KAPAN KAMU MULAI MASAK?

Berawal dari hobi waktu tk sih, tapi kalau profesi mulai dari SMA. Sebenernya, emang saya suka masak, dan ibu enggak bisa masak sama sekali, jadi waktu itu mikirnya “harus ada yang bisa masak nih di rumah”.


LEBIH MILIH SARAPAN, BRUNCH, MAKAN SIANG ATAU MAKAN MALAM?

Kebetulan saya suka brunch dan makan malam, tapi kalau memang harus pilih, saya akan pilih makan malam. Karena, makan malam adalah day of the meal gitu, dimana kamu bisa makan apapun yang kamu mau. Misalnya, enggak mungkin kan kamu makan steak di siang hari atau lagi sarapan. Dulu waktu saya lagi magang di Paris, keluarga saya mendapatkan makan malam mewah di tempat saya bekerja, kita menyantap 12 makanan serta minum wine. Rencana awalnya adalah saya mau nge-treat mama dan kakak saya sebagai tanda terima kasih ke mereka. But it turns out Chef saya yang bayar hahahahahaha




MAKANAN FAVORIT MU APA?

Apa ya? Bingung sih kalau di tanya begitu. Tapi kayaknya daging deh, any type of meat actually.


MAKANAN APA SIH YANG MENURUT KAMU PALING MUDAH DI MASAK?

Indomie. Walaupun Indomie buatan saya terlihat sangat penuh dan ramai, tapi sebenarnya saya hanya memasukan semua bahan-bahan yang ada.


RENNA PUNYA RESEP RAHASIA ENGGAK?

Humm enggak sih, soalnya saya setiap masak suka bikin resep baru terus nanti pasti udah lupa gitu.

 

SELAIN MASAK, HOBI KAMU APA?

Saya suka musik. Enggak main alat musiknya sih, tapi saya suka banget hangout di bar yang ada lagu blues nya.

 

ADA MUSIK KHUSUS ENGGAK YANG KAMU DENGERIN PAS LAGI MASAK?

Biasanya saya dengerin blues seperti B.B King, atau old jazz dan swings.

 

SEBUTKAN 3 HAL YANG PALING KAMU SUKA DARI JAKARTA?

Wah sulit ya pertanyaannya hahahaha, saya suka watak orang-orang Indonesia dan kesederhaan atau kepraktisan hidup di Indonesia. Oh iya! Saya juga suka Gojek, karena sangat praktis. Waktu saya sempat balik ke Paris gitu, terasa banget Gojek saves my life.

 

 GAYA FASHION MU ITU SEPERTI APA?

Sebenarnya saya tidak terlalu memperhatikan fashion, tapi ya saya suka memakai pakaian yang cocok untuk saya. Saya lebih sering menggunakan pakaian-pakaian simple atau unisex, dari pada yang ribet gitu.

 

BERNYANYI ATAU MEMASAK?

Masak.

 

Jumpsuit: Thick Strap Jumpsuit Black - Narel



APA YANG KAMU LAKUKAN UNTUK MENGISI WAKTU LUANG?

Hmmm, apa ya? Hal yang saya lakukan untuk mengisi waktu luang? Apa saja sih sebenarnya, saya tidak terlalu suka club tapi saya sangat menikmati bars, dimana kita bisa duduk dan mendengarkan lagu. Selain itu, lagu yang di putar juga tidak terlalu keras, sehingga masih nyaman kalau mau ngobrol sama teman. Saya juga suka jalan sih, dan bermain bersama anjing peliharaan saya.

 

KALAU KAMU BISA JALAN-JALAN SEKARANGM KAMU MAU KEMANA DAN MENGAJAK SIAPA?

Pacar. Lebih tertarik keliling Eropa, karena dulu saya pernah magang di Paris, tapi karena kerjaan yang menumpuk, saya belum sempat jalan-jalan. Jadi, it would be real nice, kalau bisa jalan-jalan keliling Eropa sekarang.  

 

LAGU FAVORIT SAAT MASIH KECIL?

Tepung Beras Rosebrand? Hahahahahhaa ini bercandaan kakak saya dan saya dari kecil.

  

KAMU PUNYA MASUKAN TIDAK UNTUK ORANG-ORANG YANG SUKA MASAK?

Menurut saya, orang-orang harus mulai memasak dengan mengenai bahan masakannya terlebih dahulu. Tidak hanya googling resep makanan yang terlihat seru atau enak, tapi kalian juga harus membiasakan diri untuk pergi ke pasar atau supermarket. Selain kepuasaan sendiri saat makanannya sudah jadi, dengan memilih bahan masak yang segar akan melatih kreatifitas.
