At 19 Culinary Studio invited members of the media to attend a cooking class based on recipes from the award winning cookbook – Food for Your Eyes on 16 and 25 April 2013. This time round we got more magazines to attend rather than newspapers because our press people were busy covering the events leading to GE13. Ah well, they missed out on the fun and the “makan” afterwards!
Ms Goo Chui Hoong, a qualified dietitian, culinary instructor at our studio and co-author or Food for Your Eyes cookbook, guided members of the media cooking two recipes from the cookbook – Vietnamese Spring Roll and Onde-Onde with Walnut filings. Both were delicious and healthy. The cookbook won the Best in the World Cookbook (Health & Nutrition category) at the renowned Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in Paris, France on 23 Feb 2013.
"Food for Your Eyes" is more than a cook book as it also highlights basic facts about common eye diseases, including age related macular degeneration and how food can help prevent or reduce the risk of blindness. The cookcook contains over 50 recipes from breakfast to dinner and desserts, all home-made recipes created, tried and tested by Ms Goo. Recipes are simple and easy to read. Instructions are easy to follow and it shows how eye-healthy ingredients can be incorporated into everyday meals.
The cookbook is retailing at RM39.90. If you would like to get a copy, do get in touch with us at 016-377 8236. If you would like Ms Goo to conduct a healthy cooking class for you, please e-mail us at19culinary[at]yahoo.com.
