Welcome to Tok Panjang
Peranakan dishes made simple!
Thank you for stopping by, and I am so glad that you are here.
First I want you to know that no matter what you think about your cooking abilities, whether you have the time, can’t find ingredients, don’t know how… I want to assure you that you CAN prepare delicious meals for your family without having to outsource your cooking to third party.
This is where Tok Panjang comes in!
What is Tok Panjang?
“Tok”, means Table in Hokkien, and “Panjang” means Long in a Malay term. Tok Panjang in Malaysian / Baba Nonya (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peranakan) means Long Table.
In traditional terms, when we mention Tok Panjang, we usually refer to a type of feast associated with weddings and special occasions and the amazing peranakan cuisine that are served.
Thus, in my family back in Malaysia, we had a “Tok Panjang” (long table), where family members would gather during special occasions, festivities or during meal times and serve delicious baba nonya dishes.
What does TokPanjang represents?
To me personally, I chose the theme of Tok Panjang to represent my message – it is about sharing wholesome traditional dishes with your family and friends at your Tok Panjang!
We are time poor parents, so where do we find the time or know-how to cook traditional dishes?
Cooking traditional dishes especially nonya dishes is now a possibility with readymade pastes and ingredients!
What is my mission?
I want to share with you simple and fast ways to prepare home-cooked dishes that I grew up with, as well as those amazing peranakan dishes that normally takes hours to prepare!
