A Table For Two is changing…

When I wrote my first post back in 2008, I never thought that this blog would have lasted this long and surprisingly I am still slowly chipping away now and again four and a half years later. I have to say this blog has definitely changed my life and career one way or the other, for better and also for the worse… (hello backlog and sleep deprivation!) But so long I know there is someone out there who is still reading it, and leaving comments now and again, then A Table For Two is here to stay, hopefully for another four and a half years eh? And to move forward, A Table For Two is changing. In the next couple of days, you will see a few changes at A Table For Two – a new facelift, a new approach and a new direction. I have to say I am pretty excited about the new direction where A Table For Two is heading and very much looking forward to working closely with a bunch of talented food bloggers across the country. In the mean time, please bare with us if you ever notice any errors or hiccups whilst we migrating the blog to a new server hopefully tomorrow. Until then, let the countdown begin!      ...

Malaysia Culinary Tour 2012

Join Masterchef’s Billy Law on an exclusive 9-day Culinary Tour in Malaysia – he will share his personal journey in food, love and family in the country where he grew up. If I have to describe my year 2011, these are the words I can think of – random, surreal, spontaneous, hectic, life changing. Last year has been kind to me but I am looking forward to an even more exciting and delicious new year! While I am still frantically writing recipes, cooking and testing, trying to meet the deadline for my upcoming cookbook, I have also been working very closely with my personal travel agent for the last few months and finally we’ve designed an amazing culinary tour that we both very happy with and here it is – grab your passport and come on a 9-day Culinary Tour in Malaysia with me! I have spent quite some time designing and planning this culinary tour to make sure I am 110% happy with it. As I think it is quite personal for me to show you the country that I grew up in the way I see it. It is almost like flipping through my old diary to rediscover my childhood, my home country, places that I visited and the food I ate. But most importantly, I am rediscovering this truly unique experience together with you. Within the 9 days, we will explore the superb multi-cultural Malay, Chinese, Indian and Nyonya cuisines – from the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur, to the charming historical town of Melaka, and the foodie’s paradise of Penang. The trip is jam...

Happy Birthday, ATFT!

Happy Birthday to ATFT! [winner announed! competition closed.] It is A Table For Two’s 3rd blogiversary! Technically, I’ve only been blogging for 2.5 years since I was absent for the last 6 months on MasterChef series 3. But who’s counting right? I would like to thank you all for your loyalty and support of my blog for the last three years and in keeping with tradition, it is time for me to give something back. Last year I’ve given out a KitchenAid, but this year I want to encourage everyone to rediscover the joy of cooking in your own kitchen, and thanks to le Domaine for their support, one of you will be bringing Jamie Oliver home! Well, not him personally, but a brand new Jamie Oliver professional series stainless steel 6pcs cookware set that’s worth over $500! Wait, there’s more! To celebrate this special day, our ATFT’s Titbits is officially launched! I won’t tell you what’s inside the Titbits, you’ll just have to subscribe and find out. It even has an exclusive SUBSCRIBERS ONLY promotional offer in our first issue, you do not want to miss out. You may have not noticed in the video in my previous post, I was actually giving this cookware set a test run cooking the beef casserole and the potato and leek mash. I was very impressed how well made and solid they are. I love the heavy copper impact bonded base to keep a nice even heat, it is induction cooktop ready, and it is also oven safe up to 260°C. Please find out more about the Cookware Set. To win...
