Noob Cook Recipes


Hi, I’m wiffy the Noob Cook. I’m from the sunny city of Singapore.

Welcome to my recipes blog! I enjoy cooking even though I don’t think I’m very good at it. Being a noob* at cooking doesn’t, however, deter me from entering the kitchen and trying to whip up a storm. In this blog, I feature recipes of the successful dishes I’ve made. Hopefully, my bravery in entering the kitchen and showcasing the recipes will be an inspiration to other noobs out there.

* In case you are wondering what noob means, here are some of the applicable definitions at urban dictionary:

Being a Noob Cook doesn’t mean we eat in all the time! Noob Cook Reviews (sister site) is a personal blog of our eat-out and travel escapades, where we share our foodie and travel finds with our readers. All featured reviews and content on Noob Cook Reviews site are explored at our own expense and recreation (non sponsored).

    Dear Wiffy,

    Came across your website while searching for sesame oil chicken and ‘orh nee’ recipes. Found it has many interesting recipes that make me water. But I’m still looking for an easy ‘orh nee’ recipe. Since this is quite a popular dessert, do you mind sharing a recipe that is easy to make?

    Thank you.

    Hi Wiffy, your blog has been a life saver for a noob mom and homemaker who has never done any decent cooking before. In fact many recipes published here have been my childhood food, thanks to you that I am able to relive some of the taste that is very close to my heart. And talking about inspiring other noobs, congrats you’ve done it, and very well! =)

    May I use your picture of sweet and salty mei cai? From your page:

    Can you say why it is termed: “sweet”? Does this mean fresh or non-salted or non-fermented or not pickled?

    Hi Wiffy,

    Drop a message in your Facebook so I’m not sure if you received it. I would like to discuss with you on possible collaboration. Could you kindly drop me an email when you can.

    Hi Wiffy,

    I have been following your recipes and they are always successful! Thank you for your recipes. My all time favourite (and I have cooked it numerous times) is the black pepper beef stir fry! Absolutely delicious and my bf adores it!
