Street Food Journeys Goes Plant-Based with Tourism Malaysia for Series 3

Sydney, NSW (25 Oct, 2021) Jackie M today announced a new 4-episode Street Food Journeys video series in partnership with Tourism Malaysia Australia, and this time, the focus will be on plant-based Malaysian meals.

In this third instalment of the popular series, those on a plant-based diet will be treated to a vegetarian and vegan line-up of cooking segments, tips and food discoveries.

“Street Food Journeys has inspired and engaged viewers and food lovers from all over the world with its exploration of Malaysia’s deliciously authentic flavours.” said Jackie M, producer and host of Street Food Journeys. “Series 3 takes the next step, which is to educate our viewers on which Malaysian dishes are plant-based and which can be easily tweaked or adapted to suit their plant-based diets.”

The series covers four popular Malaysian tourist destinations, namely Penang, Melaka, Sarawak and Kuala Lumpur. Each episode includes cooking demonstrations on how to recreate vegan or vegetarian versions of famous dishes from these places, as presented by Jackie M. and her guest chefs from Masters of Malaysian Cuisine. The JetLag Warriors and Ken Abroad give their verdict on plant-based dishes they come across in their food hunts, to help viewers plan their next Malaysian adventure.

In 2001, Jackie M., whose parents used to sell hawker food in Seremban, Malaysia, decided to give up her IT consulting career, take up her parents’ mantle, and share Malaysian food with the world through opening her own restaurant and launching her range of ready-to-eat meals. When her special needs son Noah came along in 2012, Jackie decided to pivot to the online space, which is where you will find her these days, sharing her recipes, cooking tips and videos.
