How to Cook Laksa Johor By Chef Dato’ Ismail (Street Food Journeys S1 E2: Johor)

I remember when it was first described to me back during my restaurant days by my team member » Read More

How To Cook Satay Celup by Debbie Teoh (Street Food Journeys S1E1: Melaka)

The best way to describe Satay Celup is that it's a hybrid satay and steamboat (aka hotpot) dish - think skewers of meat and vegetables dipped into a peanut-based sauce in a pot at your table.

How To Use Malaysian Curry Powder

I grew up with Malaysian curry powder - we used it in all our cooking; not just in curries. It was (and still is) so much a part of my life that it took my own daughter, Becky, (yes, I do have a grown-up daughter who’s married with a kid, etc.) to make me appreciate its distinctive flavour.  Link to watch >> » Read More

12 Ways To Use Musang King Durian

Musang King durian is considered by many Malaysians as the king of durian varieties, with a flavour that's more potent and flesh that's firmer and richer than the frozen Thai durians that Australians might have encountered in the freezer section of their Asian supermarket.

Cacao Chilli Crisp w/Noodles | Dark Chocolate Date Cookies (Rachel Khoo)

Recently, BBC studios contacted me about the possibility of trying some of Rachel Khoo's recipes from her TV show, Chocolat, airing on UnifiTV and BBC Player.
