Classes for 2018

  Dear Friends,

As we pass the mid-year,  the second half of July will see 7 confirmed classes which will keep me busy. I'm looking for more interested to join these classes, as they are currently mainly for a young man coming from overseas to learn Peranakan/Singapore food, to rediscover his family heritage. Those employers who have sent their maids for the 5-day course will find these classes good additional dishes for them to learn.

August will also be a quiet month unless I have Beginners/maids sign up for the 2 courses listed. By end-August, I'll again be off to Perth, and from there go on to New Zealand for a 10-days holiday, my first visit to that country, and I'm looking forward to it.

When I return in mid-September, I'm starting an interesting 6-days Advanced set of classes, over a course of 6 weeks. It's been a while that I have these classes and I'm looking forward to them.as they are at the specific request of a small group, I am looking forward to 2 or 3 more joining, especially for those who had requested previously and I was unable to do for lack of a minimum group.

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.
