In this series of articles, LocalHood volunteer @Sze Yeen, an avid cook herself, speaks to 3 fathers of the community that love to cook for their family. These are regular fathers, not professionally cooks or even working in the F&B sector just those who enjoy sharing their love for cooking with those they love most in their lives.
In this profile of our Father's Day Series, Sze speaks about food: The love for making a meal, the origin of the love for cooking with another foodie and loves-to-cook dad, who also happens to be Sze's better half CHEW 😎👍🏻. Chew shares with LocalHooders, some of his tried and tested recepies which win him the WOWs each time :-) . Enjoy!!!
Like many of us, Chew’s first cooking attempt was when he was missing home cooked food while in college. Omelette should be doable. So he thought. His first ever dish; preserved radish omelette “chai poh neng” was way too salty and totally inedible. That was his first cooking lesson; take the time to learn the ingredients and how they complement each other. For those who are not familiar with this popular Malaysian Chinese dish, preserved radish is heavily salted thus salt is not required for the recipe.
