How to Make Vegan Rice Noodle Rolls (aka Chee Cheong Fun)

I’m not the best ambassador for vegan cooking, because in all honesty while I like the creative challenge of replicating meat dishes using vegan ingredients, it doesn’t mean I want to eat the food at the end of my broadcast. This dish however, is different, because it’s accidentally vegan, not manipulated and contorted to fit a vegan diet. It’s » Read More

Twitch Update

Passed 10K views on my Twitch channel as I near 3 months on the platform. I've just attained Twitch Partner status, but I gotta tell ya, livestreaming to an audience of zero some days was an exercise in character-building :D Thanks to those who stuck by me from Day One, you know who you are. www.JackieM.Live           » Read More

How to Make Pasembur (aka Indian Rojak)

My perseverance with Twitch finally pays off - my channel got featured in the first slot on the Twitch Australian homepage during this broadcast, bringing in my largest live Twitch audience to date. (No, not about to challenge My Kitchen Rules ratings anytime this side of eternity, but still.)   As I pointed out in this broadcast, there’s » Read More

How to Make Vegan Sui Gow (Chinese Dumplings)

This, folks, is how you do Vegan Asian right. I made this up on the fly and it was so good it got the thumbs-up from my stridently non-vegetarian guest. Not to mention baby Noah who, if you watch the video below, stole and munched on two of the as-yet-uncooked dumplings when I wasn’t looking. Vegan Sui Gow INGREDIENTS: 250g hard tofu - » Read More

How to Cook Serunding and Mild Prawn Sambal

So I had this genius idea for audience retention; rather than telling them about my latest Giveaway at the start, I told them they’d have wait till the end for details. Then I promptly forgot about it. I hope those poor folks who stuck around at least managed to pick up some Malaysian cooking tips. Chicken Serunding INGREDIENTS: 250g » Read More

Bonne Maman Cheese Pairings & Mother’s Day Giveaway

The international trend of pairing jam with cheese (no, I wasn’t aware of it - I’m so Malaysian it hurts) has arrived on Australian shores, just in time for Mother’s Day. Since I’m a big fan of Bonne Maman, I thought I might share some of the suggestions they released courtesy of expert cheese educator Sonia Cousins - Bonne Maman has very » Read More

How to Cook Steamed Fish with Preserved Vegetables

I don’t know if it’s the Chinese in me that makes me especially partial towards steamed fish (steamed most things, as a matter of fact) but even if you’re more used to having your fish battered and fried, do give these recipes a shot. They’re quick, flavoursome, easy to make, and  kind to your waistline (I promise). Steamed Silver Perch with » Read More

How to Make Homemade Curry Pastes

This was the episode where I gave away all my trade secrets regarding curry pastes, which I still sell online (though mostly to an elite group of people who’ve been buying them from me since my Orange Grove Market days). I made 4 different types of curry pastes, but will only share one of the recipes here since they’re somewhat repetitive, plus » Read More

How to Make Har Meen (Malaysian Prawn Noodle Soup)

I know, I’ve done a couple of videos on this in the past; this I think was the first live broadcast where I didn’t just make the stock or paste, but also followed the recipe through to completion (ie. with noodles etc.). I know the broth looks a lot more cloudy than if the stock was made with whole prawn shells; trust me, it tastes much more » Read More

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
