Food fortunes favour the brave

Food fortunes favour the brave

It was on a bright spring afternoon about 20 years ago when we heard urgent knocking on the front door of our home. When we opened the door, it was our neighbour. “Is everything OK?” he asked in a somewhat irritated tone. “Um, yeah. Why […]

From scratch or not from scratch? That is the question!

From scratch or not from scratch? That is the question!

We got a lot of tremendously positive feedback on our most recent Shop-Cook-Eat session. However, there was one particular piece of feedback that highlighted a dilemma I’m sure that many cooking demonstrators grapple with and inspired this blog post. It related specifically to Mum starting the […]

Report: Shop-Cook-Eat-Cook #3: Malaysian Chicken Curry with Mama Yeow

Report: Shop-Cook-Eat-Cook #3: Malaysian Chicken Curry with Mama Yeow

That’s a wrap! Another successful and sold-out (in two weeks of putting it up on Eventbrite.com.au!) Shop-Cook-East (SCE) session. Obviously, there’s a gap in the market in teaching how to make Malaysian Chicken Curry. This classic Malaysian dish brings back some great memories for me.  On […]

Report: SHOP-COOK-EAT Session #2 – Vietnamese Favourites with The Yeow Family

The Art of Eating All You Want

The Art of Eating All You Want

“Tell me why you don’t weigh 500 pounds!” my good friend Jared said to me.  He was referring to how, despite the constant eating that goes on in the Yeow family, we seem to be able to maintain a reasonable weight. I’ve heard numerous times […]

Curse of the ‘Child Bride’

Curse of the ‘Child Bride’

Teena had a birthday few days ago. Despite having had four kids and joining me on the ‘wrong side’ of forty, this chick still looks eighteen! There were three notable occurrences just this past week that rammed home the harsh fact that ‘Little Miss Evergreen’ looks young enough […]

The Tragedy of Lost Recipes

The Tragedy of Lost Recipes

Teena and I were having a chat the other day about cooking know-how lost between generations in families. We’ve spoken to countless others from ethnic Asian backgrounds who aren’t able to cook their families’ traditional dishes despite of wanting to and having parents who were wonderful […]
