Are you the next Wok Star?

WOK STARS RECRUITMENT POSTERHave you ever been disappointed by a plate of flavourless, badly cooked char kway teow, and know you can make a better version? Or perhaps your mission in life is to cook and preserve Singapore’s hawker food? If you love to cook local fare and have an adventurous heart, you might want to put on an apron and join MediaCorp’s newest reality cooking series, Wok Stars. We think this initiative is a really great one, so I was excited about finding out more about the upcoming program from Lawrence Ng, producer of Wok Stars.

The Inspired Chef, artisanal ice creams by 4 of Singapore’s top chefs, launches today

Inspired-Chef-ice-creams

I am a total ice cream addict. On top of that, since my wife S makes some of the best ice cream I have ever tasted, in the years since she first bought her commercial ice cream machine, I’ve become a rather discerning (or spoiled depending on who you ask) ice cream lover. Which means that any new ice cream has to be pretty damned good if it is going to impress me. Which is exactly what the flavours I tasted from Singapore’s newest ice cream brand, The Inspired Chef, did.

Austrian Wine Experience 2013

Austrain Wine Experience

Matching wines to each dish that are strictly from a single country is a massive challenge even for the most experienced. Even more so for diners who have a stronger preference for the mainstream wines. In the landlocked country of Austria, the farmers grow a diverse range of grapes that are made into food-friendly wines for most, if not all, I dare say. Say hello to Austrian Wine Experience 2013, held for the third time in Singapore and this time is definitely a charm.

See you at the Noosa International Food & Wine Festival

Yummy food in Noosa Festival Village

Next week, my wife S, two year old mini-me T and I are heading down under. Last year, as regular readers know, I attended the super-fun Noosa International Food & Wine Festival. Well, we’re going back again this year, but this time, instead of covering the festival, I’m there as a participant.

Happy Holidays and CH on Edamam

XMAS

 

Merry Christmas everyone! It’s been a really exciting year for Chubby Hubby. We relaunched mid-year with a big bang and an amazing group of contributors. I have a lot to be thankful for–personally, my family of course; professionally, amazing business partners and ever-passionate, super-smart colleagues; and blogwise, the best and coolest team I could ever imagine assembling.

That said, I am a loyal and passionate fan of Zinio–the single best electronic way to subscribe to and read your favourite magazines. So, when they cool peeps at Zinio contacted me to ask if I’d be up for sharing some of their holiday promos, I instantly replied, “You betcha!”

Our new look, our new team and our new sections

Pouring Champagne

We’re back! And I am sure you’ve already noticed, we’re back with a completely different look. I want to firstly thank every single person who gave us her or his feedback on which design template we should move to. In the end, we decided to use the Shaken Grid both because many of you preferred it over the other options, but also because Su-Lyn and I really liked its visual style and navigation system.  We also liked that it re-adjusts itself reasonably well for tablets and smartphones–necessities in making digital design choices these days.

Checking in — revamp still in the works

Hi everyone. It’s been a really long time since I’ve been active here.

I thought I would share some recent photos with you guys. S and I took off for a super fast 3 day trip to Tokyo last week in order to celebrate her birthday. While we would have loved to have stayed longer, we had to get back in time for my son’s first birthday, which is only 3 days after S’s birthday. Yup, little T is now one year old and he’s the cutest kid on the planet (but hey, I’m biased!).
