China Sichuan Food

This is a blog on Chinese food and eating culture with a specific focus on the Sichuan (or Szechuan) province, which is renowned for its spicy food. It’s okay if you don't like spicy food, there are many other tasty recipes too.

You can also learn more about the techniques used to cook, such as how to stir fry using a wok, how to make a hot pot or dry pot, or how to make spring roll wrappers.

As well as all the recipes available on the site, the “pantry” teaches you more about the ingredients that you will use in your cooking. You can learn how to make key Chinese ingredients such as Chinese five spice, sweet and sour sauce, chilli oil, and fried shallots and garlic. There’s also an introduction to Chinese herbal soup ingredients, a guide to Chinese sauces and pastes, and an introduction to Chinese leafy green vegetables. Here is where you can learn about what ingredients you should be purchasing at your local Asian supermarket.

There are also videos available on both the site and the blog’s YouTube channel, which you can access via the blog or by searching on YouTube itself. With every meal you cook, you’ll get that little bit closer to mastering Chinese cuisine.

The Woks of Life

This blog is written by a family of four living between the US and China. The blog allows them to share their recipes and travels with the world. It has been recognised as the online authority on Chinese cooking in English.

You can find recipes according to the principal ingredient such as: beef; chicken and poultry; fish and seafood, or by collection, such as: quick and easy; Chinese takeout; and Chinese New Year, or by course.

You’ll find many Chinese recipes in addition to Western dishes with a Chinese twist. If you’re worried this might be too difficult, don’t worry, the quick and easy recipes can help you gain some confidence in your cooking before moving onto fusion cuisine. There’s also an entire category on vegetables and a collection of dedicated vegan and vegetarian recipes.

You can also read many “how to” articles. These cover the cooking methods and cooking tools you will need to use to prepare their recipes. You can also check out their Wok guide, and read about Chinese culture.

Then there are articles about the ingredients you’ll be using in your dishes, what they are used for, which brands they recommend, and more.

If the idea of eating delicious foreign cuisine has you yearning to travel, this site also includes articles about the family’s travels with tips, recommendations, and itineraries.

This is one of the more heartfelt blogs on the internet. The whole family enjoys contributing to the site and their approach is more personal than some other websites you’ll encounter during your search on Asian cooking.

My Korean Kitchen

Do you prefer Korean food to Chinese?

Then this is the blog for you. If you’re a meat-eater it’s even better!

As well as authentic Korean food, there are also many fusion recipes bringing together Korean techniques and ingredients with Western cuisine. There’s sure to be something for everyone.

The recipes come with step-by-step photos with easy to follow instructions. But if you need more than this, don’t worry! The blog’s author, Sue, also has a YouTube channel with video recipes that you can follow. No more need for takeaway!

Sue began the blog to help foreigners living in Korea to give them some tips on living and cooking there. However, it turned out most of her readers are actually from outside of Korea so she shifted her focus. Thankfully she did as now you can access this site which has been listed as one of the greatest global food blogs!

The blog is easy to navigate and recipes are organised into helpful categories: by course, type of dish, or main ingredient.

Just One Cookbook

This Japanese blog and cookbook is perfect for anyone interested in the cuisine from the Land of the Rising Sun. There’s certainly much more to Japanese food than sushi!

The blog’s author, Nami, began the blog to record and share her favourite Japanese recipes with her friends and help them cook Japanese cuisine. Her goal was to end up with a cookbook that she could pass onto her children. But Just One Cookbook has turned out to be a lot more than just a simple cookbook.

The way the recipes are organised is one of the best things about the blog. You can choose recipes that can be cooked in under 30 minutes, with under 5 ingredients, according to course, the type of dish, and the main ingredient. Additionally, you can find meals that cater to dietary requirements such as gluten free, vegetarian, or vegan recipes.

Similar to the other blogs on this list, Just One Cookbook also has a YouTube channel where you can watch easy-to-follow, how-to video recipes.

No Recipes

Despite the name, this is a fantastic site with over 1000 recipes. No Recipes was founded by Marc Matsumoto to give people the confidence and inspiration to have fun in the kitchen, and help elevate their everyday meals by teaching the basics.

However, Marc likes to cook without using recipes and hopes to teach his readers to be able to do the same.

How?

By educating readers on techniques through words, photos and videos that explain the why behind a technique, not just the how. But if you really need a recipe, don’t worry, the site has plenty!

And who knows, perhaps the more recipes you prepare, the less you’ll need them! Not only are the recipes step-by-step, but the accompanying photography is sure to work up an appetite before you’ve even begun cooking!

Considering Marc is also a TV chef, it’s not a surprise that his blog also has a YouTube channel with over 100 videos. However, this isn’t as many videos as some of the other blogs featured on this list.

Look at Superprof for various cooking classes Brisbane.

Omnivores Cookbook is about modern Chinese cooking – including street food, family recipes, and restaurant dishes. You can look for recipes according to what course you would like to cook, what dietary requirements you have, or what method you would like to use.

Rasa Malaysia

Bee is a food blogger and best-selling cookbook author. Her site features easy Asian and American recipes made with simple ingredients. As the name suggests, she’s an expert in Malaysian cuisine.

“Rasa” is a Malay word. Derived from Sanskrit, it translates to “taste”. But Rasa Malaysia has expanded beyond Malaysian cooking and now covers all Asian recipes, such as: Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, Indian, Indonesian, Filipino, and more. 

Rasa Malaysia is a culinary journey through Asia’s rich and complex gastronomic delights, where you can taste all of the flavours of Asia. There are also baking and non-Asian recipes on the site.

Of course, this isn't an exhaustive list and there are many more fantastic Asian cooking blogs on the internet for almost every single type of food.

In short:

  • Asian cuisine is rich and diverse. In terms of blogs about it, you’re really spoiled for choice - there's a lot of information out there! No matter whether you’re making a classic noodle soup or delicious stir-fry noodles, it shouldn’t be difficult to find helpful recipes and tips and tricks on how to prepare these dishes correctly. This list could be endless so if none of these work for you, don't worry, there are plenty more out there you can find!
  • There are many blogs by people of Asian heritage who speak English and English speakers living in Asian countries so the language barrier is not a problem. If you’re trying to find information about Japanese cuisine for example, search for a blog by a Japanese person living in Australia or another English-speaking country.
  • You can also learn a lot about a country by learning about its food. Reading about, and cooking, food will help you to better understand the culture of a country if you happen to travel there, or simply understand the menu better at the next restaurant you go to!
