About the host:

As a child, I always watched my mum in the kitchen and was her handy sous-chef. So during my undergraduate studies in Australia, where I lived in a dorm with 7 other people, I naturally took on the role of the dorm chef. This meant handling the grocery funds to whipping up meals for 6-10 housemates almost daily. I really enjoyed the exploratory experiences and developed a mindset that food brings people together. My housemates and I would sit and chat over the food, exchanging feedback and tips for improving our next meal together. It was also during these conversations that I learned about the diversity of our cultures and grew to appreciate the widespread menus that each culture offered.

Over the years, I have hosted a multitude of informal sessions including cusines reflecting our Straits Chinese heritage, Singapore Local delicacies, Korean BBQ and Samgetong (Korean Korean Ginseng Chicken broth), Japanese Ramen and all izakaya and loads of Singaporean Cantonese fare.

It is my desire to allow each guest to have an experience that encompasses all the 5 senses thus allowing my guests to be totally immersed in this culinary experience.

The menu will include:
1 DIY experience + 2 mains (1 poultry+ 1 seafood) + 1 side + 1 DIY + 1 dessert+ Snacks.

1. Do-it-yourself
Kueh Pie tee dishes: A type of crispy cups "burrito". Here we invite you to Do-It-Yourself! Put on your chef hats and get your hands dirty and try making this popular Singaporean dish yourself. Choose among the ingredients that we have laid out, and my family and I will teach you how to fill it up. Extras upon request: the infamous 'labour of love' DIY Poh Piah.

2. Starters: Chap Chye (Mixed stewed vegetables with Nyona seasonings- a must try and must have for each meal setting)

3. Mains (Meat): Rendang Chicken/Rendang Beef

4. Mains (Seafood): Sambal Udang/Sambal Sotong (Chili prawns)/Fried Seabass with freshly pound Sambal blachan

5. Sides: Accompanied by PremiumThai Fragrant White Rice

6. Dessert: Pulot Hitam with Coconut ice cream dressed with Mint leaves or a Selection of Nyona Kuehs Kuehs

Location: Our home is in a peaceful, hilly side at the east of Singapore. Conveniently located at a 7 minute walk from Tanah Merah MRT station, you will walk alongside beautiful terrace houses to reach ours. When the weather permits, we dine in our garden.
