How to Make Vietnamese Banh Xeo and Bo La Lot

I had just come away from what was the best tasting Banh Xeo (Vietnamese Pancake) I’d ever had, at Ngoc An Restaurant in Cabramatta, so I was inspired to attempt it in this broadcast. The two standout features of the dish from Ngoc An were that it was extra crispy, and had a dominant coconut flavour. This first attempt sadly replicated neither, » Read More

How to Cook Char Kway Teow

More than a few people over the years have been horrified to learn that I freely share all my recipes with the world. The reasons I do so can be boiled down to my belief that 1) there’s nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9) 2) there’s a lot more that goes into running a business than knowing how to cook 3) people like the idea of cooking » Read More

How to Make Wheat Noodles for KL Hokkien Mee

I did a near-identical broadcast on this a couple of years ago but made a couple of minor tweaks to the KL Hokkien Mee recipe this time around, so I’m re-sharing the recipes here. FYI the title of this broadcast originally made reference to homemade udon, but the ingredients are such a diversion from traditional udon that I’ve decided instead to » Read More

How to Make Rice Noodles (for Vietnamese Banh Cuon)

I didn't set out to make Vietnamese Banh Cuon but I was hoping to test out different rice noodle recipes in this broadcast to see how they turned out texturally with different ratios of tapioca flour to rice flour in the batter. As it turned out, the one for Banh Cuon was my favourite, hence the title of this post. A third recipe called for a » Read More

How to Cook Chilli Scampi and Congee

I struggle with dead air when I’m doing a live cooking broadcast; it’s probably because I started out doing cooking demonstrations in front of live audiences where you’re EXPECTED to talk right through your presentation. When I run out of questions from my Twitch audience, I ramble. In this instance I talked about baby Noah and his time in the » Read More

How to Make Marmite Chicken, Airfryer Chicken Crackling and Sambal Belacan Tumis

In the 33 years since I left Malaysia, I’d had no inclination to buy Marmite until this dish started showing up on Malaysian restaurant menus here in Australia. What I didn’t realise until the middle of this broadcast (thanks to my audience) was that the NZ-made Marmite I picked up at Woolies is significantly different to the British version I ate » Read More

How to Make Sui Gow, Serunding and Fried Fish Balls

Another first for me on Twitch - one of my audience members, Valourine, decided to leave her house while I was livestreaming, and drop in at my place in the middle of my broadcast. She ended up co-hosting the rest of this Live Asian Kitchen episode with me and I paid her with food. Yeah she could have been a serial killer and all that but any » Read More
