Celebrity Chef Martin Yan Returns to Asian Food Channel (AFC) with Martin Yan's Asian Favorites

Asian Food Channel begins the year with a bang with Martin Yan's brand new series "Martin Yan's Asian Favorites." Chef Yan will share some of his cooking secrets in preparing Asian dishes and will also enthrall food enthusiasts with his immense knowledge on all things food which he gleaned from his years of travel, meeting other chefs, home cooks and local in Asia.



In this new series, Chef Yan will handpick eight different themes to feature in each episode, where he will then whip up four dishes that best represents a country and its unique food culture. In the premiere episode, Chef Yan will combine Thailand’s unique “5 senses in 1 bowl” approach into his Cold Noodles Salad and Crispy Caramelized Noodles and share his take on Malaysia’s Fish Head Noodles and Singapore’s stir fried noodles, all bound to tantalize viewers’ taste buds. 

Another staple ingredient on Asians’ dining table is vegetables. Watch Chef Yan whip up the all-time favourite Cripsy Tofu with Bok Choy, Malaysia’s Spicy Nonya Vegetables, the refreshing Vietnamese style Papaya Salad, and last but not least, the savoury Cheese and eggplant Omelette, commonly known as Tortang Talong in Philippines. To top it all off, Martin Yan’s Asian Favourites will also have special guest appearances, where he collaborates with Datuk Fazley and Chef Minh Nha to come up with dishes to celebrate Asian’s vibrant cultures and its flavourful cuisines.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!
