Chef Marina places a strong emphasis on ensuring that traditional Malaysian cuisine will not be forgotten by future generations while applying modern and contemporary cooking methods. Chef Marina’s recipe books published by Seashore Publishing feature various easy-to-cook recipes with steps that are simple to follow along. Among them are recipes for sweets and desserts, snacks for children, stuffed food, anchovy-based dishes, simple street food, and various varieties of porridge and soup. Also featured in Chef Marina’s recipes books are new creations that are specially designed to help her readers cook up healthy meals quickly using the latest cooking appliances, such as air fryers and pressure cookers. Though she maintains that traditional tools such as the pestle and mortar continue to impart distinctive flavours to the food, she opines that cooking methods can be adjusted to suit our changing lifestyle. According to Chef Marina, given the hustle and bustle of current lifestyles, the use of cooking technology that facilitates quicker cooking without changing the original taste is indispensable. Marina has also created recipes of Western cuisine, such as pasta dishes and pizza. Though she seeks to maintain heritage cuisine, she believes in creating new recipes to cater to our changing palates as different cuisines become more and more readily accessible. Hence, as Chef Marina teaches us how to cook wajik, a steamed glutinous rice dessert, cooked with palm sugar, coconut milk and pandan leaves, she also teaches us how to whip up a delicious serving of spaghetti aglio e olio. Future Plans and Hopes Chef Marina is not done yet and is already planning for the future. She is not prioritising the creation of new television cooking shows as she believes that the future of cooking shows lies in social media. However, Chef Marina points out that writing culinary books remains her greatest passion and she hopes to continue sharing recipes and cooking tips with her readers. As Chef Marina prays that her fans and followers will be safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, she also hopes that everyone will find new interests and take the opportunity to draw closer to the art of cooking and eating with our families during this challenging time.
