Classes for 2018

  Dear Friends,

I've just returned from a trip to Perth, and am now trying to fill my calendar for cooking classes. After two lovely classes on Saturday, I'd like to start a new series of Beginners/Maids classes on Saturday, May 25th at  2.00pm. These are my favourite classes, as, over the course of 5 Saturdays, we get to know each other and enjoy the time we spend cooking curry chicken, char sui, beef rendang, assam fish curry, chicken rice and fifteen other dishes!

Those wishing to start learning to cook Peranakan dishes or wishing to send their Maids to learn dishes that they'd like reproduced at home, please note the above date and let me know asap if you are interested by sending me a text to 96757611.

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.

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.

As June is a whole month of school holidays, I've also included some classes for children. It's always fun to watch them enjoy making Pasta and Pineapple Tarts and Onde Onde.

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.
