Classes for 2018

Dear Friends,

June holidays are upon us, and I'm off for a break till after mid June. So there will be no classes till Friday 22nd June when I'll have a private class for Thomson MacRitchie Ncc friends who want to learn penang laksa and Nasi Ulam, using herbs I have in my garden.

As Beginners/maids classes are always popular, I will be starting one on Saturday 23rd June at 2.00pm. These are a series of 5 classes, once a week, covering 4 dishes per class and all planned to help maids plan Singaporean family meals. Sometimes I have employers wishing to complete the 5 classes within a week, and I can also accommodate these. Classes are small in number, as I start with 3 pax, very focused, and attendees learn very quickly. Details are on this website under class schedules.

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. Just last week I hosted a couple from Melbourne, who were enthusiastic participants in cooking chicken satay, beef rendang, sambal kangkong and onde onde and enjoyed every dish afterwards.

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.

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.
