In time for Ramadan celebrations and adjusted for measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the Asian Food Network (AFN) is hosting live cooking sessions to help Muslims celebrate the month-long religious festival starting April 21.

“This year, with people spending more time indoors, [AFN] is bringing inspiration directly into audiences’ homes through live cooking sessions,” the network said in the statement.

Ramadan runs from April 23 to May 23 this year.

The live cooking shows will be hosted by Malaysian chef Ili Sulaiman, the host of network’s Home Cooked: Malaysia and Family Feast with Ili. She has also come out with her own cookbook, For the Love of Food and is said to have been cooking since she was seven years old.

Ms. Sulaiman will be cooking four dishes and is encouraging viewers to cook along with her as the ingredients list will be posted on prior to the show, which starts at 7 p.m. on the network’s Facebook page.

The sessions are scheduled on April 21, April 28, May 5, and May 12 at 7 p.m. on the Asian Food Network Facebook page. Those who miss the Facebook Live session can still view the full show on the AFN website at 11 p.m. on the same day.
