Classes for 2018

Dear Friends,

I'm going away again for a holiday at the end of November. Before that, two sets of Beginners/Maids Classes are on-going. One set on Saturdays is in its third class whilst another is being planned on Tuesdays, starting October 16th. Those who are interested in sending their maids for these classes please contact me asap.

A set of classes for Beginners/Maids started from Saturday  29th every Saturday for 5 weeks. Those wishing to join these classes can send me an email and check out the details of dishes on my website. I have been requested to start another series on Tuesdays, starting Tuesday 16th October at 2.00pm. One more participant is needed, so anyone interested can whattsapps or message me on 96757611. There are more requests for these classes and I will be planning a series for Saturdays and another for weekdays, for late November/December. The price for these classes are $520, and they include the costs of ingredients, tasting portions to take home, and the gift of Book 2 of my cookbook "Grandmothers' Recipes, Everyday Dishes for Today's Families.

Sometimes, in the midst of this course I have requests to join in any one of the specific classes and I do accept them, as the classes are independent of each other. I just need sufficient notice to prepare the ingredients.

Teaching the basics and intricacies of Peranakan/Singapore food remains a main and important goal to both Singaporeans as well as overseas visitors. Hosting young ladies who want to learn to cook before they tie the knot has also become popular, as friends will usually arrange a "Hens" party for their bride-to-be friend. Overseas visitors from all over the world have come to learn to cook and enjoy dishes like beef rendang, chicken satay, nonya laksa etc. I'm looking forward to having more visitors from overseas. As the holiday season is coming soon, you may be looking into festive /party dishes and now is the right time to start planning and sending your helpers or coming yourself to learn home-cooked Peranakan dishes that will be sure to enthrall your families and friends. Check out my website www.grandmothersrecipes.com.sg and find out the wide repertoire of dishes available and contact me and let me know what you wish to learn.

I also welcome classes for team bonding as well as family and friends for a birthday or other celebrations. You can decide on what you want to learn to cook and enjoy having them right after you cook them.

You can also check my facebook page grandmothersrecipes for postings and pictures of dishes cooked and enjoyed by many who have learnt authentic Peranakan/Singaporean dishes with fresh ingredients and without msg and other artificial flavouring.

Although I do already accept bookings for lunches and dinners, I am also looking into doing degustation dinners of truly Peranakan dishes cooked at home and served dish by dish as you enjoy your wine in a homely atmosphere. For those who are interested, do send me an email for further details.

Please note that I need a deposit of 20% for classes and any last minute cancellation will result in forfeit of deposit.

All ingredients are provided and you only need to bring your own containers to pack back the food cooked if not eaten after the class.

If you are interested, sms me at 96757611 or email me at ros@grandmothersrecipes.com.sg  or rosalinesh.soon@yahoo.co.uk  or call 64597549 / 96757611 to book.
