A hands-on class culminating in a family-style dinner served with wine and beer.

In 2018, it was impossible to escape water cooler chat about Crazy Rich Asians. The three book series by Kevin Kwan are bestselling guilty pleasure reads, and the first film broke box office records. In case you missed the movie, there is a notable food scene that made every viewer drool: the Hawker Food Scene (click here). For a glorious minute, we were transported to the street food scene of Singapore and wanted to taste everything! Inspired by this film and the chatter surrounding it, Linda created this class. 


Black pepper crab or prawns (crab season permitting)

Fried Carrot Cake

Satay Daging
