Getting to know Team Khoollect: Rachel Khoo

Get to know Khoollect’s Editor-in-Chief Rachel Khoo a little better, in eight simple questions…

What’s your secret talent?

Break dancing really badly. (See my outfit from a costume party themed ‘come as who you wish you were’. I wanted to be a ‘b-girl’ and made Run DMC ghetto blaster out of cardboard.)

If you were a fruit or vegetable, what would you be?

Salak, AKA snake skin fruit. It’s scaly on the outside but has a surprising interior; crunchy, sweet and tart all at the same time.

Which actor would play you in a film about your life?

Helena Bonham Carter

What would the title of your memoir be?

‘Butter makes everything better.’

What’s your pet hate?


What were your childhood hobbies, and do you still practise them now?

Making stuff: from hammering wooden mini treasure chests, painting, drawing, baking…I guess I make stuff in a different way now. It’s more within the realms of professional work. I need to get back to free creativity and just make stuff for the fun of it!

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Oven chips with mayonnaise, Tabasco sauce and ketchup to dip in.

What song best describes you?

‘Can I kick it?’ by A Tribe Called Quest.
