Hungry? We hope so! It’s time to step into the kitchen and get to know Singapore through some of its iconic local dishes. Join us for a hands-on cooking experience where you’ll learn how to make popular Singaporean treats like chili crab sauce and pandan chiffon cake, as well as snacks such as pineapple tarts and ondeh-ondeh, (a type of soft and chewy Asian dessert).
We’ll start with Pandan chiffon cake, Singapore’s most loved cake. It’s been touted as one of the world’s best cakes. The highlight of this cake is pandan, which not only gives it a beautiful fragrance, but also its signature green hue. This light and fluffy chiffon of Asian origin might look unassuming, but every bite will definitely leave you wanting more. The chef will demonstrate how to put the cake together, so there will be nothing to distract you from learning his method.
Next up is a demonstration on how to make chili crab sauce — with a twist. Beer is widely used as an ingredient to whip up yummy dishes and we’ll be showing you how to use it to enhance our famous chili crab sauce, served with crabmeat on a bed of salad. Even home cooks can master this dish with our winning and easy recipe!
We’ll get hands-on now with our next recipe, pineapple tarts, which are widely savoured during festive seasons such as Chinese New Year as pineapple, when pronounced in mandarin, means bringing good fortune.
Lastly, you’ll get to make ondeh-ondeh from scratch. The popular Asian dessert is soft and chewy thanks to the sweet potato and glutinous rice flour it’s made with. It is then filled with gula melaka (palm sugar) and covered with desiccated coconut. This authentic recipe is fuss-free and can be done in a short time.
After all that cooking and eating, we’ll enjoy a teatime break with a refreshing drink.
