AFF West Asia Round Up

Asian Food Fest: West Asia has come to an end! Despite the West Asian cuisine is a completely strange new cuisine to many of us, I applaud all the brave bloggers who attempted the dishes. I thank all the bloggers who have taken part in this event, with a total submission of 58 entries. Same like you, I have also learnt various new dishes from all of you here, many of those which I’ve bookmarked to try in future. I hope you have enjoyed discovering new exotic ingredients, flavours and dishes, as well as having fun cooking West Asian food. Hope that this will inspire you when you want to cook West Asian Food in the future. You can also visit our Facebook Page (West Asia Album) where we have compiled a list of all food entries submitted by bloggers and non bloggers as well. Below are all the delicious entries that have been submitted, just click on the link and it will direct you to the respective posts.

Asian Food Fest: Thailand has completed with a massive round up of dishes last month, check it out over at Her Frozen Wings.

MFF Kuala Lumpur Selangor Round Up

August 1, 2013 by Shannon Lim-de Rooy | 10 Comments

Malaysian Food Fest (MFF) Kuala Lumpur Selangor ends today. The time just flies in July. Throughout the MFF events (started almost a year ago), I’ve learnt many new dishes from all the states in Malaysia. It is very common that there is similiarity of the dishes between the states, either influenced, begged or borrowed, and morphed over time. This is same with KL Selangor. MFF is all about celebrating the food culture of each state.

The food culture in KL Selangor is so diverse that it’s a bit challenging because the food there has evolved from the amalgamation of influences from all over Malaysia due to the high migration. I am glad so many of you accepted the challenge and joined in the fun with a total of 46 submissions! Bravo and a BIG BIG thank you to everyone who have participated. There’s so many Lohanguo drinks enough to give a good brain freeze and drool at all yummy noodle dishes.  Continue Reading →
