Malaysians are known for their love for food. My grandparents come from the East coast, where traditional dishes are sacred and revered. Although my mother's favourite way of cooking is to have someone else do it for her, I enjoy it a lot.
My favorite things to cook
I love pasta, as well as Tex-Mex and super-flavourful Asian dishes. But, judging from the response I got, my best dish would be the Bacon-wrapped Smokies, whose recipe I found here!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We're big on barbecues and group-cooking. Some of the fondest memories I have with my family were around a hot plate, making okonomiyaki (savoury Japanese pancakes) or grilling meats for a Korean barbecue.
My cooking triumphs
Undoubtedly my crab quiche I made for a party. I used puff pastry for an element of surprise, and I think everyone liked it! :D
My cooking tragedies
Desserts. Any kind.
