Hi,

First, foods sounds odd to me; food is more suitable. That said, you certainly can replace foods with dishes (dish = the food served or contained in a dish).
Now, regarding your three sentences, I would suggest these alternatives:

a) She enjoys cooking in the kitchen every night.
b) She is cooking delicious food / dishes for us.
c) His hobby is cooking in the kitchen every day.
(a) Ah Chong's mother's hobby is cooking chicken in the kitchen every day.

How about this sentence? IS that correct?

Vincent Teo(a) Ah Chong's mother's hobby is cooking chicken in the kitchen every day.

How about this sentence? IS that correct?
That one is fine, but a little bit difficult for my tongue! (chicken in the kitchen)Emotion: smile
Thanks. If I say,

(A) My hobby is cooking fried rice to my grandparents.

Is that correct?
For, not to. If you want to know why, just do some research on EF. The difference has been dicussed at length. Your sentence is fine otherwise Emotion: smile

Vincent TeoThanks. If I say,

(A) My hobby is cooking fried rice to my grandparents.

Is that correct?
Hi Vincent,

I would suggest that we use for instead of to; it sounds better.

My hobby is cooking fried rice for my grandparents.

I see that you use the word hobby often. Note that hobby means 'an activity that you enjoy doing in your free time'.

That said, some people do consider daily routines to be their hobby. For examples, retirees learn / make arts and crafts; mother creates recipies and cook a variety of dishes for her family (she does not have to with living-in maid(s) but she does it with joy).

In my opinion, it is however odd to say, "my hobby is going to work every day." Somebody might argue, but I don't use the word hobby that way.
A hobby is a wider word than just cooking one particular dish for one set of people. You might say cooking is a hobby, but not so specifically as in your example.

A hobby is more than something you enjoy doing.
I like to cook fried rice for my grandparents.

Is this fine?
