Hint about one's home cooking (7)


I believe the answer is:


'cooking' is the definition.
('cuisine' can be a synonym of 'cooking')

'hint about one's home' is the wordplay.
'hint' becomes 'cue' (I've seen this before**).
'about' is an insertion indicator.
'one's' becomes 'is' (roman numeral).
'home' becomes 'in' ('he's home' can mean 'he's in').
'cue' enclosing 'isin' is 'CUISINE'.

(Other definitions for cuisine that I've seen before include "(Regional) style of cooking" , "Local cooking style" , "Culinary art" , "The food" , "It can be French, Italian or Spanish in a restaurant and tasty" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
