After ending her 14-year marriage to actor-filmmaker John Sham Kin-fun a year ago, Tse Ning is finding the right ingredients to enjoy a new chapter of her life. The former actress and Miss Hong Kong 1985 is an avid cook and is using her skills to help autistic children as well as develop her own health-food business. She is also a keen supporter of the recently launched Wan Chai Organic Farmers Market, which is held each Sunday by groups such as Hong Kong Organic Farming Association and Green Peace China, but will close for the holidays until January 7. 'I'm really interested in cooking and I want to use it to do something meaningful,' said Tse, who occasionally helps out as an instructor on a catering training programme aimed at middle-aged women. 'When I divorced last year, I thought I should have my own career and not rely on other people any more.' Tse (right) joined TVB as an actress after winning the beauty pageant and quit when she married in 1991, before moving to Taiwan six years later. There, she developed an interest in organic food which changed her attitude to life. 'Starting everything from scratch in a strange place was really good training for myself,' said Tse, who was by then a full-time homemaker, in between helping Sham with his business in Taiwan, before returning to Hong Kong in 2000. 'I've changed a lot and have become more independent and decisive.' Earlier this year, she co-hosted Kitchen Accomplished with actor Tse Tin-wah on TVB Jade channel, but says she's not keen on doing another cooking show or returning to showbiz. 'There have been producers inviting me to play different roles. But honestly, I don't really enjoy acting,' said the 43-year-old mother of two daughters, aged 12 and 14. 'I've been there, done that. It's not something I really want to do. 'Before the divorce I didn't know what I really wanted, it was quite miserable. I didn't really think thoroughly when I got married and just gave it a shot. But now I can say: I know what I really want.'
