This month, as part of our September FEMALE Challenge, Team FEMALE is taking notes about what it’s like to be vegan!
The timing cannot be any more perfect. Thanks to Airbnb’s latest feat Experiences, I had the opportunity to meet and (un)cook with Raw Chef Yin, our very own local raw vegan celebrity chef! She’s the star of her own show VELICIOUS with Raw Chef Yin as well as the author of Raw Vegan Delights. In the intimate 3-hour session, the humble chef shared the reasons behind her going vegan and the benefits she has reaped from it.

Plusma-Cast interviews #RawChefYin! Paul from Plusma-Cast asked if he could interview me and I said yes. I suggested we do it in a park as I love being surrounded by nature. 🌳🌲🌱🌴🍁🍂🍃 . Stay tuned for the video interview which should be out next month.🎬📽️🎞️🎥📹📸📷 . Meanwhile, here's a bit about Plusma-Cast: Hi, welcome to the channel. I'm Paul and weekly I speak with professionals in the creative industries. This can range from fine arts, performing arts, designers, writers and much more. In principle, we discuss their professional journey to give insight for anyone thinking of this path (or for the curious). From the first inspirations to their education, to starting out professionally and to give industry insights. 😋💚 #rawchef #rawveganchef #veganchef #chef #rcyinterview #interview #plusmacast #desaparkcity #nature #park #trees #videointerview #inspiration #insights #vegan #vegans #rawvegan #food
Of course, as a Malaysian through and through, Chef Yin has a sweet spot for Asian dishes. She travels across Asia to collect the best of tastes from other vegan chefs as well as reach wider audiences. Her recipes are easy to follow too, even if you’re a rookie (like me)! Her raw vegan laksa noodles recipe looks great, even better when you pair that with sambal belacan!
