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).

    Love the website! Very easy to use and the pictures help a lot, especially with the Chinese herbs.

    Hello Noob Cook

    If I want to cook for servings 3-4 or more, should I double the ingredients quantity ?


    • wiffy replied: — June 25th, 2014 @ 11:58 am

      Generally yes, though it do depend on the individual recipe so do season to taste accordingly.

    i am trying to reverse-engineer a good quality fish curry powder, since commerical brands are scarce here in the usa. any suggestions?

    Dear Wiffy, I have been readying your blog and twitter posts for sometime and liked it very much. It shares many of the Singapore favourites in easy to follow recipes and colourful pictures.
    I would like to invite you to join us in upcoming pop up food carnivals which my colleagues and I have initiated and supported by SG50 to celebrate our Singapore birthday and food culture. If you are interested, I can meet up with you to discuss in greater details.

    Hi Wiffy, these days everyone is using air fryer. have you try any recipe with air fryer? I’m confused what can be used in AF and what not? I tried the calamari in AF and it fails. I have tried your recipe in a deep fryer before and it taste so good! Maybe can give some tips for a real noob like me! Thanks!
