"Kitchen" by Elisa Choi

I am not sure what this appliance is called but it is used by Mom to slow cook sparerib with soup (we had it today!) or braise pork adobo. It is quite convenient because you just put in all the ingredients and leave it to cook all by itself. Time saving eh? :)

I only managed to sketch one thing during the Close to Home series but I've been browsing all your artworks and they are all phenomenal. Very inspiring stories! Thank you to Lynn for organizing this blog to house all these creative folks! I look forward to participate more and see your exciting recipe post perhaps and all things kitchen. This series might make us hungry.. lol. Thanks Lisa for the theme!

Take care all!


  1. This series is definitely going to make me hungry, I am already. The sound of your mum's soup...yummy. I love the idea of putting everything into one pot and it cooks away without extra culinary skills (I have no culinary skills btw), lol.

  2. Your view of your appliance is so charming, Elisa. I love your light lines that give it a wonderful shape, and your use of shadows!
    Here we call it a "slow cooker" or a "Crock Pot". Here's a recipe for you I made last forth of July to take to a party for Vegan Sweet Potato Chili with Kale by Chef AJ. Here's the URL: The orange juice in this recipe really gives the chili zing! There are tons of Vegan recipes there! Have fun making them.
    I'm so glad you are enjoying the blog! I look forward to more of YOUR wonderful art. I hope the People in your country are recovering well.

  3. Great sketch Elisa. Love the little splatters. Yes I'm hungry already.

  4. I can tell this pot contains many good things!

  5. Nice sketch of this pot! Great shading and the yellow spots make it!

  6. Hi Elisa. That pot looks great and I bet the adobo in it was wonderful. Great sketch. I love adobo by the way and pancit. My husband is Italian/Filipino and so we have these types of dishes from time to time. Hope all is well with you.

  7. Sounds like a nice way to cook...and I'll bet it smells great! Nice sketch!

  8. PS if you feel like leaving us a recipe here for spareribs with soup… ;)

  9. Lisa so good to see you here! Sounds so yummy!!
