Easy Peasy One Dough - 15 Jan

We had our first Bread making class last Saturday and the smell of freshly baked bread which filled our kitchen was incredible. Healthy deliciousness filled the air. Under the guidance of Baker Anand, the students were taught the basics of kneading dough the traditional way – by hand! Yeap, there was pushing and pulling, spreading and punching. A good workout I must say.

The students have not baked bread before and they were skeptical at first if the bread will turn out. They listened to Baker Anand in a disbelief fashion when he told them at the start of the class that “with just one dough, you can make bread, rolls and pizza”. “Cannot-lah. Not possible” were the replies. Lo and behold! The bread loaves, dinner rolls and thick crust pizza turned out fabulous. Everyone was a celebrated baker proudly showing off their prized creations.

Vivien, a first time baker, had this to say – “Anand is an excellent and patient chef. I really like this class. He has made it very easy and his teaching is slow enough to follow. Excellent!”

Baker Anand will be conducting more bread and pastries classes on 19 Feb and 12 Mar. To find out more about Anand’s classes, log on to

Macaroon Class - 11 Jan

Whilst cupcakes are still popular classes at our school, macaroon is gaining popularity amongst us who are looking for things different and new. Macaroon derives its name from the French word "macaron" which means "fine dough". According to "Larousse Gastronomique", the ultimate food encyclopedia, the macaroon originated in Venice, Italy during the Italian Renaissance. However, it is better known as a French dessert often served with coffee. Macaroons are such lovely little colourful cookies.

Rita, her children and friends arrived early on Tuesday morning to learn the basic techniques of making and baking macaroons. Needless to say, they had an absolutely fun time. Being amateurs, their macaroons were piped in circles of different sizes but nevertheless, the taste was excellent! The students liked the Green Tea flavour very much. They also learnt to make Lemon and Chocolate filings. Simply delicious!

Our next Macaroon class is on 11 and 27 Feb. To find out more, log on to

Cooking Classes for Men - 8 Jan

In this day and age, men are also getting their hands into cooking a meal for themselves. Cooking is after all quite therapeutic! What’s more, cooking at home is healthy and you will always have a delicious meal, no matter how simple it is. On 8 Jan, we had two brave men learning the ropes of cooking up a quick, simple and nutritious meal from Chef Bee.

The theme of the class was “Rice Cooker Chicken Rice Meal”. Both men learnt how to best use the ever faithful cannot do without piece of kitchen equipment - the Rice Cooker. The rice cooker is not only for cooking rice. Both Clarence and Alvin learnt to make the most of this wonderful invention. Lots of quick and easy meals can be done in the rice cooker.

They guys prepared the well loved claypot chicken rice using the rice cooker and accompany it with some great dishes for a fantastic meal! To find out more about our classes, log on to

One to One Class (adult) - 9 Jan

We had the privilege of conducting one to one classes for children and adults. On 9 Jan, we had young and pretty Sheryl Leong learning from Chef Khai all there is to know about poultry in the Back to Basics – Poultry class. Sheryl learnt the basics of the different parts of the chicken from how to cut it to how to cook it. Chef Khai also shared proper cleaning, chopping, slicing and deboning techniques. Sherly also learnt to cook dishes using chicken from the Escoffier recipes of the master chefs.

One to One Class (children) - 30 Dec

We had the privilege of conducting one to one classes for children and adults. On 30 Dec, little Leticia, who is 8 years old, arrived at our school full of enthusiasm to start her Fun with Fondant class. The theme was “Garden”. Under the guidance of Decorator Han, Leticia learnt the basics of sugarcraft skills and created pretty and beautiful fondant plants and creatures like leaves, flowers, lady bird, bumble bee. Her creations were simply awesome and she was just esthetic to show off her completed Garden master piece to her mum, Farah Koh, when she arrived to pick Leticia home.
