Iconic American Chinese Chef Martin Yan of ‘Yan Can Cook’ TV series fame, was in Penang for the filming of the new TV programme ‘Taste of Malaysia’.

The Penang episodes features the chef visiting many hawkers, food vendors and restaurants, and tasting dishes that make up the Malaysian food scene – Chinese, Malay, Indian and Nyonya.

Besides scouting locations with the production team, I was also on board, doing some street food hopping scenes around the city with the chef. It was truly an opportunity to learn from the humble chef himself. The filming outing is challenging and fun, and is an experience truly cherished and remembered.

I can’t give away much of what’s going to be on the show but here are some of the behind-the-scenes photos…

Media and bloggers had the opportunity to catch up with chef Martin at the ‘Rooted In Nature’ event held at Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La. The resort is leading the way in sustainable seafood and the chef is joining in the resort’s culinary journey.

If you are in the Northam Beach Cafe in Penang, do check out the the nutty goodness of peanut candy and peanut sugar from Ang Seng Heong. Although both are made with peanuts, each has its own distinctive taste and texture.

The peanut candy, also known as kacang tumbuk or kong th’ng (in Hokkien) isn’t anything new. With scrumptious taste of peanuts and sugar, this crumbly snack has been around for ages and its recipe still remains a perennial favourite among customers.

Penang is a hawker paradise with a huge variety of interesting street food stalls offering plenty of good and reasonably priced Chinese, Malay and Indian cuisine. I revel in the delights of hawker food, sold throughout the market area, neighbourhood stalls and the narrow back alleys of Penang.

Some of the stalls offer sitting areas while others have none, so you may have to eat while standing up – a bit of a challenge. However, it’s an even bigger challenge to decipher what goes into each dish and just where those flavours dancing on your palate stem from. This is where I can help.

 Teochew Cendol

What it is: Teochew Cendol is definitely the most popular dessert in Penang. The dessert is made of finely shaved ice, boiled red beans, aromatic palm sugar or gula Melaka, creamy coconut milk and the queen ingredient is the soft green bean flour noodles flavoured by fragrant pandan juice called cendol.

SAMOSA

What it is: Savoury samosa & curry puffs are popular deep-fried snacks sold mainly at Indian and Malay street food stalls. They’re made out of dough cut into small pieces and stuffed with a savoury spicy filling. Fillings might vary slightly but most vendors have the vegetarian version filled with essentially spicy curry paste, potatoes and onions. The meaty version with chicken meat is also available. Samosas are normally triangular-shaped while curry puffs are crescent-shaped and tapered at the ends to keep the filling intact.
