We asked all our writers to record their own R.AGE Food Fight submissions, and here’s what Clarissa cooked up — her mother’s gumbo recipe, but with a palm oil twist. Delicious though it may be, she still can’t compete in the R.AGE Food Fight (sorry Clarissa!). But you definitely can! Because R.AGE Food Fight is searching for Malaysia’s next food celebrity, who will walk away with RM10,000, a food column in The Star, and a food video series on R.AGE.

To participate, send in a video of yourself cooking a dish with palm oil, along with a blogpost to complement your video. Full details here!


Literature grad-turned-journalist who loves our R.AGE team karaoke nights a little too much. While her literature background has left her with a slightly twisted sense of humour, it has also given her a passion for writing on social issues.

Tell us what you think!
