Classes for 2017

Dear Friends,

School holidays are starting soon! As the older ones prepare for O and A Levels exams, parents of younger ones are looking for ways to occupy them creatively. So why not send them to a cooking class? Let them learn, in a small group of 4-6, how to make their own pasta from scratch and cook a seafood sauce to sample their handiwork. Or try their hands at making a Peranakan/Singaporean dessert like Onde Onde. They can also bake a chiffon or apple/almond cake. Or let them learn Pineapple tarts so that you can make your own together for Chinese New Year! Or they may like to learn how to make Char Sui pork and have their own Wanton Mee with it at home! Introduce them to cooking their own local Singaporean/Peranakan dishes.These are all simple dishes which children will be able to learn with minimal knife handling and exposure to open fire, something I'm keenly careful of. I have had requests for cooking classes for children during the long school break and have posted some on my website. The best way forward for these classes would be for interested parents to organise their own group amongst their children's friends (4 to 6 would be ideal) then you can pick your own times and dishes

I'm also starting another series of 5 classes for Beginners/Maids on Friday 22nd December. Those interested in joining any of these classes please contact me asap! You will learn how to plan and do a Singaporean/Peranakan meal for the family with 4 dishes in each class. These are small classes which are very focussed to encourage you or your helper to do interesting meals for your family. Details are on the website and so long as I can get 3 to start, a class can be organised.

You can also get a group of 4 or more friends and customise what you wish to learn from my vast list of Peranakan and Singaporean dishes.

I also welcome corporate team-bonding classes, where participants end up with a meal of the dishes chosen and cooked or as a group of 22 from Hyatt Hotel did recently, have an enjoyable bonding session, making Pineapple tarts.

For those celebrating a birthday or other happy occasions or just a get-together with friends, you can arrange for your own favorite dishes, cook them and enjoy them immediately. Hens/Bachelorette parties are my latest requests. I've also welcomed many visitors from overseas to learn Peranakan/Singaporean food and culture. Currently I've bookings from South Africa, Scotland, Australia and USA. It is always enjoyable and a pleasure to share and exchange foodnotes with all these vistors.

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.
