How to Make Hakka Yong Tau Foo (Stuffed Tofu and Mixed Vegetables)

New billing cycle means no worries about data consumption this time around. No audio problems, no trolls, no Baby Noah to spill stuff on the floor, nothing. Except for the coughing and the progressively raspy vocals. As I type this several hours later I’ve completely lost my voice, so my next installment coming up in less than two days might be » Read More

How to Make Malaysian Satays and Ketupat

This is the episode that begins 20 minutes after we started cooking thanks to my vain efforts to save every last byte of Telstra data in case I ran out halfway through. There were 3 days left in my Telstra billing cycle with 95% of data used and one remaining Live broadcast to squeeze into it. I didn’t want to pay exorbitant amounts for excess » Read More

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.

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.

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

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

Laksa Nyonya Recipe from My TAFE NSW Masterclass Presentation
