Even as we get to know the various local dishes in Penang, it is useful to also get the ingredients that go into making these dishes. Indeed, the love for Penang dishes has extended further afield, to cities all over the world.
On this page I provide you a list of ingredients you will find in the kitchen of a family that cooks regularly. I am lucky in that my wife loves cooking and loves trying out all the various local dishes. She learned the basic of cooking from her mother, who continues to cook daily, and (as you would expect) is very particular about the taste of food she tries.
Though I never develop the skill for cooking, I certainly enjoyed the dishes prepared by my mother, and now my wife and my mother-in-law. They are all excellent cooks with demanding tastebuds - often dishes that I thought of as good are simply "so so" to them.
Thank you for visiting my website. I started it in 2003, and today it has over twenty thousand pages of information. My name is Timothy Tye. You can call me Tim. I have been writing my website full time since 1 November 2007, and I am enjoying every moment of it. I write my website to satisfy my own curiosity, but I am glad if the information is useful to you.
