How to Cook Cantonese Beef Noodles (Kon Chau Ngau Hor)

A glitch-free broadcast at last - save for the fact that my Twitch chat moderator lost track of the time and forgot to catch the show, so I had nobody to moderate the comments. Everybody in the chat room was very civil so no worries there, though to be honest I sometimes itch for a fight with trolls just to keep things interesting. It’s an » Read More

How to Make Vegan Kaya and Onde-Onde

So apparently all those praises about how my Twitch broadcasts are so much clearer compared to ones I did on FB Live were actually cloaked warnings about my data consumption. In another example of unscripted television, Day One of Week 3 on Twitch was interrupted by an SMS from Telstra saying I’ve used up more than 85% of my mobile data, which » Read More

How to Make Hakka Pan Mee and Garlic Chilli Sauce

My second week on Twitch wrapped up with my first ever live in-studio guest - makeup artist extraordinaire Tania Strange - who had been trying to pressure Masterchef alumni Alvin Quah and myself to join her in a karaoke sing-off for years. Appearing on Twitch was, I guess, her consolation prize (or punishment, as may be the case). I knew very » Read More

How to Cook Malaysian Chicken Curry & Vegetarian Curry Puffs

Someone on Facebook posted about Married At First Sight the other day, and I commented that reality television is anything but real (I’m not generally known to butt into discussions about shows I’ve never watched, by the way). After this Twitch.tv broadcast I came to the conclusion that my livestreams are in fact the new “reality television”. I » Read More

How to Make Penang Hokkien Mee Paste & Crispy Fried Shallots

Twitch livestream #4 was a case of 2 steps forward, one step back. I introduced an overlay which helped clean up my screen layout, and also decided to zoom in the camera so my work area is cropped out and it doesn’t look like I’m broadcasting from the middle of a warzone. I also decided to switch back to my original microphone - remember the one » Read More

How to Make Penang Assam Laksa and Lai Fun (Rice Spaghetti)

Twitch broadcast #3 and yes, I know it looks like my studio suffered a bomb blast right before I went On Air. To be fair, I was just trying to follow advice to take it easy and make everything from scratch - live streaming on Twitch is all about inviting your buddies to virtually hang out with you in your kitchen, not, they say, a formal, » Read More

How to Cook Wonton Noodles and Chicken Char Siew, Plus My First Twitch Troll

My second Twitch.tv livestream covered one of the more popular menu items from my Orange Grove Market days - wonton (aka sui gow) noodles with chicken char siew - I’m still tweaking my broadcasts, so I appreciate your patience re: screen layouts, audio, etc. etc. You’ll notice in this second livestream that I’ve tried to make it more » Read More

How to Cook Rice Noodles with Silky Egg Sauce

My first ever Twitch broadcast! Apologies for the audio issues (esp. the dead silence in the middle) - I’d actually had everything set up to go but switched to a different type of microphone at the eleventh hour because of construction noise outside and in the process I overlooked some configurations. This particular noodle dish comes in a » Read More

Jackie M on Twitch.tv

Twitch.tv/JackieMFood I’ve been doing Live videos for years and bounced around a few different platforms without much hoo-hah (I know, people think I’m everywhere online, but I promise I usually have my head stuck so deep in my work that the marketing and promotional aspects are mostly an afterthought). This latest Live video iteration however, » Read More

How to Cook Crab with Salted Egg Yolk Sauce – Chinese New Year Recipe

I mentioned during the broadcast that I was missing a couple of ingredients and I also skipped a step at the end, but the recipe here reflects the “unadulterated” version. Crab with Salted Egg Yolk Sauce Recipe INGREDIENTS: 1kg crab pieces 1 egg 3 Tbsp tapioca starch Oil for deep-frying Yolks from 3 salted eggs, cooked 1 » Read More
