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:

  • someone who is new to a game, or website, online game, or something …
  • noob is derived from the word ‘new’, it implies that you are inexperienced …
  • Someone who completely and utterly sucks at what they are doing. This can range from cooking food, to playing Halo or other games…

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).

  5. I love ur recipes. May I know where can I get those bake wares like the porcelain baking dishes u used for bake rice and bake tofu?

    • Hi SaSa, thanks! I live in Singapore, and most of the oven-safe dishes are bought from Daiso Singapore, at S$2 each, a steal! Some other bakeware are gifts from friends and random collection.

  6. Hi Wiffy! Just dropping by to say that your blog is the best discovery of the month! I had some scallops which were thawing in the fridge and I had some tang hoon which I desperately needed to use so I googled these 2 ingredients and chanced upon your recipe. The end-product was absolutely delish. THANK YOU!

  7. Hi Wiffy
    Like you, I’m not a professional but love to cook as a hobby. I find it rather relaxing, actually! As a Singaporean living in Norway I am most happy to stumble upon your blog and have since passed on the word to other locals living here. Your recipes are most useful ie. if we could find all the necessary ingredients here! Plus the colourful pictures really help whip up an appetite for local foods. Thanks for the good work. Interesting stuff. Keep it up!

  8. Thank you wiffy, I love your website and recipe ideas! Do keep the great recipes coming!

  9. Hi,
    I am so inspired by your dishes. I don’t know how to cook and so afraid of the kitchen. But I want to learn how to do it, I think your blog will help me a lot. Please post more recipes as I want to charm my husband by cooking hehehe. By the way can you post steam recipes?

    thank you.

  10. Just wanted to thank you so much for this website!! These recipes have inspired me to take up cooking for the first time! Especially for an overseas Singaporean like me, it’s heartwarming to be able to find such recipes that I could easily reproduce.
