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).

  1. Hi Wiffy,

    I really enjoyed reading your food blog and browsing through the recipes! As a fellow Singaporean who can’t live without good food, your blog helped me understand Asian cooking better! Like the “Yin and Yang”! I have been making traditional soup weekly for my folks since chancing upon this site and I hope others too will “continue the tradition” of cooking for the family! Thank you leh~!

  2. Hi Wiffy, I’m a die hard fan of your blog, I’m presently living in Dubai as my hubby is working here, Singapore food is one of the thing we missed most, ever since I stumble on your site, ive been visiting it daily, I’m basically the type which needs COOKING FOR DUMMIES! Your receipes are all so detail, and I’ve tried most of it, it’s Two Thumbs Up! Thank You! I’ll be very looking forward to your upcoming updates!

    Kind regards

  4. Hello! Thanks for your inspiration! There are so many food blogs out there but its nice to find another noob (just like myself)! I only started getting really interested in cooking 3 months ago, and started noob cooking site too : http://dish-by-dish.posterous.com so its nice to see that I’m not alone!

    Thanks for sharing the Sporean dishes too! I never really learnt how to cook SG dishes when I was back home, but now that I’m far away in Argentina, your recipes are gg to help me when i have cravings for SG dishes!!

    • Hi Felicia, you have such a lovely food blog! I’ll be visiting and learning from you too :)

    • Aww wiffy! thats so sweet of you! thank you! especially since its coming from such a pro noob cook like yourself!

      Will add your site to a list of my favorite sites! :) Have a great week!

    • Hi Wiffy,
      I’ve just had another thought. I know you’re on vacation and may take a while to reply, so no worries, just take your time. I was wondering if you would like to do a guest post on my blog? Since your blog originally started as a noob cook blog (for newbies like myself that is inspiring), I thought it might be interesting to feature you on my blog with a couple of Q&A? If you’re keen, let me know!


  5. pls advise your email address n contact details for event invites, etc. thanks. nice page :)

  6. Hi Wiffy, have been following your blog for over a year and love your style. I have a blog myself (not commercialized but more for personal rants) and have recently written a series of Why We Don’t Cook, in which I’ve included a link to NoobCook – hope you don’t mind :) http://www.frenchinosathome.com/1/post/2012/07/why-we-dont-cook-part-3.html

    Keep doing what you do! Cheers!

  7. Hi Wiffy just saw your blog. Could you please add me to your FB list so that I am aware of new ideas on food, etc. Thank you very much. Have a good day.

  8. Hi Wiffy,

    I just want to express my sincere thanks for all your Chinese recipes and cooking notes. They have been invaluable to me as a husband who has never cooked in his life, and has followed his significant other to a posting to some boring spot in Europe where Chinatown is non-existant…

    My wife loves my rudimentary cooking and that is testament to your great site!

  9. Hi Wiffy,
    May I know how to print out the recipe from your blog..Normally when I cook I will paste the recipe in my kitchen so I don’t need to keep opening my ipad :)
    I’m interested in many of your recipe, unfortunately it can’t be printed..any way to print it?


  10. Hi Wiffy,

    I happened to stumble upon your website and…. I just love it! In just a short while and i’ve picked up so many tips! You are so detailed! I’ve recently started cooking again on my own after we do away with the domestic helper after 14 years! Can’t wait to try your receipts this weekend! Many thanks!
