Home cooks are turning to these online cooking gurus for meal ideas

Lim says people have been asking him for recipes for simple, basic dishes, so he has started posting two recipes a day to cater to the demand. — LIM BOON PING

Every day of the week, Lim Boon Ping cooks a meal for his family. On the side, he runs a YouTube channel called Cooking Ah Pa (www.youtube.com/cookingahpa) where he documents the methods and ingredients required to make the simple, predominantly Chinese style dishes he cooks at home.

Since he started a few years ago, Lim has accumulated a huge following and now has over 111,000 subscribers on his channel. But he says interest in his recipes has never been as high as it currently is.
