This cookbook co-authored by Dr Kenneth Fong (consultant ophthalmologist and retinal surgeon) and Ms Goo Chui Hoong (dietitian and culinary instructor at At 19 Culinary Studio). We are so proud of Ms Goo who teaches healthy cooking classes on request at our culinary studio. This was her first attemp in co-authoring a cookbook with her husband, Dr Fong and it was an effort well worth the praise.

"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.

Private Class: Ikano Asia - 21 Jan 2013

Ikano Asia wanted to bring together 17 people from different nationalities for an evening of fun. What better way to do a teambuilding activity than to cook together and have fun eating afterwards. Sonia and Erik-Jan liaised with us to come up with a proposal for an evening of comradeship. We proposed to take them on an "Asian Adventure", cooking dishes from around Asia. The recipes included Thai Mango Salad, Nyonya Baked Fish, Chicken Satay with Peanut sauce and Tom Yam Seafood Soup. Chef Khai conducted the cooking class and needless to say everyone had lots of fun learning about the different herbs and spices used in asian cooking.

The test was in the taste when everyone sat down for a well deserved dinner. There were lots of laughter as everyone was relaxed and enjoying the food and the evening. Ikano Asia made it possible for their team. Go set up more Ikea stores!

If you would like to do a teambuilding event, give us a call at 016-377 8236 or e-mail us at19culinary [at] We can help you fit any budget.
