Happy New Year! How has everyone been doing? It’s been a long time since Hochiak! Delicious Asian Food was updated and I’ve received many emails wondering what I’ve been up to. Well, I’m doing fine and the cooking hasn’t stopped albeit, very much of the same old recipes recycling every other week. My family has also been blessed with a domestic helper from the Philipines who is very talented in cooking as she has been able to pick up Chinese cooking really fast. So, it’s been good to be having nourishing home-cooked food every evening when we return home from work.
So, what’s this cookbook that I have featured here on this post, you may ask. It’s something really exciting that I want to share with you. Hochiak! Delicious Asian Food was written based on my passion to record down everyday home-cooked food recipes to be shared with people all around the world and it has brought me tremendous pleasure and satisfaction to see many of you successfully replicating or even improvising on the recipes. Likewise, the Legacy cookbook is was written by 37 contributors, mostly home-makers and produced with the aim of ensuring that these favourite home-cooked food recipes are not forgotten.
The hard-covered 131-paged Legacy cookbook features
more than 136 pages of 68 recipes ranging from Hakka Stewed Pork (Char Yuk) to Teo Chew Duck and Mee Siam. Desserts are not left out. The founders of Just Heavenly (famously known for their cakes and desserts) have also generously contributed some recipes in this cookbook. Meanwhile, two recipes featured on Hochiak! Delicious Asian Food are also featured in this cookbook.
I was also given the privilege to write the Foreword for this cookbook, which was printed and produced out of love for food. The Legacy cookbook retails at RM100.00 (gift-box not included) and full proceeds will be channeled to the Wesley Legacy Centre, a new multi-storey building project of the Wesley Methodist Church, Kuala Lumpur. Shipping is
via courier is at a flat rate of RM15 worldwide for Malaysia. If you are not from Malaysia and wish to purchase this cookbook, please leave a comment here so that I can quote the shipping charges for you.
I truly hope that you will support this project which is non-commercial in nature. It took the project team, a small group of volunteers, one year to complete this cookbook. I have bought one. Will you buy one too for yourself and as a legacy to pass on down the generations?
