No one does locking and popping like him on the dance floor. Well, add to that one more - chopping! Ace choreographer and now a director also, Remo D'Souza definitely has a way with the knife on the chopping board, slicing veggies with lightening speed (so fast that the onions didn't even sting the eye).
"I learned that from my father," he says, from whom he's also picked up his culinary talent. As he says it, he knows what we are thinking, "Yes, it's usually the mothers who veer you around in the kitchen, but my dad's a great cook. His experiments with food got me inspired."
His first tryst with the flames was when he was just 12. And like most of us, it was with eggs. "I still remember my first experimental recipe. It was a French toast made with stir-fried peanuts, chopped tomatoes, onions and chillies. My friends loved it." Since then his friends oblige willingly to be his guinea pigs and critics.
While cooking was an everyday thing in his bachelor days, it's not that often now, he says. Yet the way he moves around in the kitchen it doesn't look like it's a monthly appearance at all. On the menu is yellow dal (his favourite), a chicken preparation, that's his recipe, and rice. He's perfectly at ease, multi-tasking the chopping and sauteing, apart from balancing the banter outside the kitchen.
His wife Lizelle was more than happy to have him make lunch. Oh no, there's nothing mushy to it. "While my mother and sisters think I am a good cook, my wife certainly doesn't." And he reciprocates with similar thoughts. "Apart from the lovely prawns she makes, I think she's an average cook. I'd give her a 7 on 10." (Owing to our journalistic responsibility, we turn to her). And guess what? From her Remo earns only a 5 on 10, "Coz he never cooks for me," she complains.
Just as he announces that the lunch is almost ready, as if on cue, their little ones arrive from school, unaware of what's cooking, both on the stove and outside. They instantly drown the funny banter ensued between Remo and his wife, as they exclaim to each other, "Dadda's made lunch," and gherao the dining table, their pet cats tagging along. And we ask Lizelle again. This time, with a big grin she says, "Mmm... the food's very nice."
