How to Cook Vegan Tofu with Creamy Coconut Crisps

I’m not one to sing praises about my own food (usually) but this vegan adventure has really forced me to think outside the box and it’s resulted in a few gems along the way; this was one of them. (Also check out the Vegan Nasi Lemak recipe from a previous broadcast.) As mentioned numerous times during the video (remember, this is all live so I » Read More

How to Make Bo La Lot (Wild Pepper Leaf Beef Rolls)

This was the Nerd Raid episode. Nope, I’d never heard of it either. I’m not sure how much of it showed through via my reactions on video but this was what happened. Right in the middle of my broadcast, my Twitch chat room suddenly got hit with a high level of activity (it’s usually more like Tumbleweedville - yes it’s tough going when you embark » Read More

How to Make Sweet Potato Crisps with Sweet Chilli Sauce

(Based on Kerepek Ubi Pedas Basah) This is based on the Indonesian cassava snack called Kerepek Ubi Pedas Basah which you can find at select grocery stores (here in Sydney anyway). I figured sweet potato is much more readily available here, so I made a judgement call and changed the recipe to sweet potato crisps. Sweet Potato » Read More

How to Cook Nasi Goreng

This was the episode where I lost my sense of humour and banned someone on Twitch for griping about having a kid around when I’m cooking. As some of you would know, as far as this topic is concerned, I lost it awhile ago - sometime between giving up my restaurant and being booted from markets and festivals for having my Down Syndrome kid with me. » Read More

How to Make Roti Canai and Vegetarian Dip

One of my most popular queries concerns how to flip roti canai (aka roti prata if you’re from Singapore) so I figured what better way than to livestream it with a guest in my studio. Host of radio show the Asian Jazz Hour on Northside 99.3FM, Tony Pang, joined me in this episode - and notwithstanding his first attempt, I think he managed to pick it » Read More

How to Make Sago Gula Melaka and Pengat Pisang

It occurred to me while scrambling to figure out what to make in this weekly Vegan livestream, that most Southeast Asian desserts are, in fact, vegan. I reckon I should publish a Southeast Asian Snacks and Desserts cookbook, then do a separate cover to say Southeast Asian Vegan Snacks and Desserts and market that exclusively to vegans. I’d call » Read More

How to Cook Indonesian Crispy Fried Chicken (Ayam Goreng Kremes)

This was actually my third broadcast on the same recipe - the first one failed on a number of levels (main one being a 5-minute interruption while I was being served legal papers for a little hobby site I maintain, called RobbDemarestCheats.com).   The second one would have been perfect but for my Category 5 hayfever attack, which saw me ducking » Read More

How to Make Murtabak and Banana Roti

First up, apologies to those in the chat room who said hello and did not get a response from me; I had my head down most of the time during this broadcast thanks to keeping half an eye on baby Noah right through, while at the same time making sure I didn’t keep burning my rotis (which I managed to do a couple of times). Despite my best efforts Noah » Read More

How to Cook Vegan Nasi Lemak

If you thought in this Twitch broadcast that my tone was a bit strident when telling my YouTube audience to stop watching right now if they were going to leave “unproductive comments”, this was the backstory - a comment on my soya milk live video that showed up right before I went On Air. And yes, my latest M.O. is to troll the trolls with Bible » Read More

How to Cook Singapore Chilli Crab

I’m reminded it’s been a week since I bought the two backup sim cards and neither of them are activated yet. One’s the wrong size for the modem it came with, and the other has had its activation delayed thanks to problems at the reseller’s end. I’m not freaking out so far but I probably should start drafting the inevitable blog post complaining » Read More
