Traditionally, you need to cook the radish and make the rice slurry in a pot before transferring the batter into another tray which is then placed in a steamer to steam for 1-2 hours. With the Tefal Induction Rice Cooker, you can easily do everything in a pot!
#MyGoodHood: OneService App keeps your neighbourhood looking good!
You know what’s Good in my ‘Hood? The Hainanese Village market and food centre in Lor Ah Soo! I visit the market several times a week to pick up fresh seafood, veggies and other ingredients for my recipes. There are some things which you can only get at the local market that you can’t from […]
Har Loke Prawns are a really old school Cantonese dish and frequently makes its appearance during Chinese New Year. It is relatively easy to cook and can be prepared beforehand and kept warm before serving.
I must say that Li Yin Zhu is probably my favourite local “Food” actress. I think she must be a foodie in real life because whenever you watch her on screen describing food she always manages to portray a deep sense of connection with the dish. I loved her work in “The Little Nonya”, where she played the matriarch of the family, and the scene where she tasted the Rempah Udang and proclaimed “就是这个味道” (This is the taste!”) ranks up there with the most memorable food scenes of all time!
Rocketgirl and I celebrate our “going out” anniversary every year in October. Of course, when I got to know her, I got to know her family as well, so this year I also invited her family to join us for a special meal. Rather than go out to a restaurant somewhere, I thought it would […]
I have been wanting to get a wine fridge for the longest time. I am not a big wine collector as I am only a social drinker, but I do have a few bottles which I have picked up over the years. These bottles have been lying in my cupboard thus far and all I […]

I am sure that this video would have put a smile on your face and brighten up your day! But do you wonder why? One of the little secrets to finding happiness in life is to do something nice for someone else. I think in our busyness we sometimes become very inward looking and forget […]
GAP-FF accreditation of Singapore Fish Farms: Kühlbarra Barramundi
In the last year however, I got wind of a local fish farm which was producing Australian Barramundi (That is what the Aussies call them) in the Southern waters off Singapore. I ate it the first time at The Naked Finn and I was amazed at how good it was. My friend Ken Loon who owns The Naked Finn is a crazy seafoodie, so when he started raving about this locally farmed fish, it naturally piqued my interest.
Chinese Style Roast Chicken is one of my all time favourite dishes. But you probably realize that this "roast" chicken is a misnomer because the way they cook the chicken is to deep fry the whole bird in a big vat of oil! Unlike the Western style roast chicken which is traditionally a dish served at home for Sunday lunches , not many Chinese families would actually cook "Roast" Chicken at home. Roasting a whole bird in the oven is something very practical for the modern kitchen as most homes would have an oven. However, not many kitchens are equipped to deep fry a whole bird, so the Chinese Roast Chicken is something you usually eat outside.
Advertorial You have probably come across Sakura Chicken and Cordyceps chicken at the supermarkets before right? Ever wondered where these chickens come from and what makes them different? To find out, I visited the Kee Song brothers’ farms in Johor to learn about their cutting edge technology in chicken farming. In 2005, Kee Song brothers […]
