This marriage of flavours between Filipino and Nyonya cuisine is brought together by Yen (Woks Cluckin) and Zosima (Mama Z) who are showcasing their cuisine through shared memories, recipes and stories from both family kitchens.

‘Nyonya’ comes from the Straits/Peranakan-Chinese community and refers to the descendants of 15th Century Chinese Immigrants who moved to Malaysia from China. Yen will be making dishes from her home town, Penang, where she has been brought up on family dishes and delicious Nyonya cuisine. Zosima will recreate dishes from her travels in The Philippines and her family to compliment this.

As the Chinese immigrants settled in Malaysia and interacted with the Malay, a new breed of Malaysian dishes combining Chinese & Malay influences emerged. This new cuisine incorporated a host of local ingredients such as chillies, shrimp paste (belacan) & lemongrass into the cuisine.

Immigration and settlers are also relevant to the making of Filipino cuisine. Filipino food also incorporates the use of local ingredients grown in regions of the Philippines whilst also borrowing different techniques and ingredients brought over from its many settlers.
