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. i do not have my mum’s good culinery skills, and being a wife for 4years i have never cook a decent meal for my hubby – until i came to know this website. I am still learning (trying out watercress soup tonight) and enjoying it. Now i am happy to do weekend morning marketing more than before. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I’m loving your webby as I tried to cook some receipes myself. Really simple to read and easy to cook!
    By the way, do you happen to have the receipe for 猪脚醋?

  3. Glad to find your website. I’m new to cooking and the recipes here are simple enough for me to understand and try it out on my own. Thanks!

  4. Cool stuff you have and also felt the joy you have in cooking. Your are an inspiration to me as you feature local chinese dishes which are very useful to me. Many dishes which I wish I can recreate for my loved ones to enjoy them – just like I have enjoyed them when I was young. You make them look so easy. :):):). I dread slaving over the stove – hot, flustered and having to wash up at the end of it.

    I tried the porridge and roasted pork belly. The latter turned out good but former still needs practice. Will continue to try others.

    Thanks very much for having this blog.

  5. Your food blog rocks!

    I am vvv new to cooking since I just got married and cooking has always been a great chore for me not forgetting all the washing thereafter! But well… Being someone who enjoy having family n friends over at our plc, I can’t help but force myself to learn. Chanced upon your site when looking for roast chicken recipe and tadah, found yours!

    I must say your blog has helped me a lot! Simply bcos your instructions are simple and clear, u add photos and side notes on how to get to that stage or even to melting the butter. The ingredients u use are not too fancy that it’s difficult to find and most imptly u r from Singapore!

    Amazing website and keep it up w new recipe possible! I would love to try ur baking recipe as it dint look that hard but I will have to wait till I get some baking utensils. Thanks loads once again!

  9. Found your blog while searching for CNY food. Very impressive blog indeed! Like the way you organize your recipes and pictures are beautifully taken. What I like most is you’re very humble. Will be trying your Fried Nian Gao recipe, maybe the Yu Sheng & maybe the Roast Pork Belly. Thanks for sharing your recipes.

  10. Dear Nook Cook,
    I am so glad I found your site when I was looking for a recipe to make my favorite nian guo. As I have recently moved to the UK, needless to say your recipes are a God-send as we miss the Singapore goodies. Your recipes are simple and easy to follow. Thank you!
