How to Make New York Cheesecake Using a Pressure Cooker

New York Cheesecake sounds positively un-Asian, but I was intrigued by one that was apparently made in a pressure cooker by SoyBeanJenny from my Twitch community. She posted the picture and recipe link - https://www.pressurecookrecipes.com/instant-pot-cheesecake-new-york/ - on my Discord server, and assured me it was super-easy to make. It’d have » Read More

How to Make Kerisik and Chicken Rendang

Much like cereal prawns, an overwhelming number of online searches for “kerisik” yield misinformed recipes (what I like to call Fake Food News) for this Malaysian rendang ingredient.

How to Make Chilli Pan Mee and Butter Prawns

Despite being Hakka I’d only ever had Hakka Pan Mee in a broth; this was my first attempt serving it “dry-style”, which involved using the same dough recipe from the soup version which I’d previously shared, but this time cut into thin strips as opposed to pappardelle-style. I was also going in blind with this since I’d never had it, and frankly » 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
