#008: Nyonya Kuihs

Kuihs are such an important part of Malaysian cuisine. It’s a category of bite-sized desserts that can be sweet or savory, crispy or chewy, had at any time throughout the day, and is wholly adored by Malaysians everywhere. However, it’s rarely seen outside of Southeast Asia, when really it deserves so much more!

So this week, I invited the wickedly talented Nyonya chef Debbie Teoh onto the show, to talk about kuih, it’s (lack of) popularity in the wider world, and how we can spread our craze about kuih! I also got her to taste a kuih—specifically a pulut tai-tai—that I made!
