This group of Malaysian chefs and bartenders publish content on their Instagram to teach recipes for food and cocktails at home.

We are living in difficult times, no doubt, because of the coronavirus. However, it can be useful to devote ourselves to cooking or creating cocktails, learning new things. Let’s look on the bright side.

That’s why these five Malaysian chefs and bartenders decide to publish recipes in their Instagram accounts every day.


Chef Darren Chin

The chef and owner of DC restaurant, Bref by Darren Chin and Café-Bistrot David, publishes videos on his IGTV. But also photos with recipes on his Instagram.


Chef Ili Sulaiman

FoodNetwork Asia’s Malaysian Ambassador is also sharing her best recipes via her Instagram. Like this delicious Nasi Lemak Goreng Ayam (fried rice, chicken, peanuts…). “I’m using items we have in the pantry as we should be rationing foods and making recipes in one pot.”


Milky Whey Cheese

Annisa Iwan and her team, who manage the restaurant, continue to work for the people even though they are closed. At this time they do home delivery and cooking classes by Instagram as well. Today (March 24th) they will teach how to make mascarpone cheese. And for the sweetest ones “and if we have time, we’ll turn it into tiramisu,” said Iwan.


The Sticky Wicket

Mattman Joseph is a bartender at The Sticky Wicket, a cricket-themed bar that is also closed for obvious reasons at the moment.

His series Cocktails At Home, teaches cocktail recipes to make at home. Its first edition teaches how to make a whisky sour. The interesting and condescending thing is that it shows us which elements of our kitchen can replace bartender utensils to prepare the cocktail. “You can use a jar of jam, a jar of pickles, or even a take-out coffee cup,” explains Joseph.


Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
