Classes for 2023

 Dear Friends,

Apologies for my silence for so long. Although I've been back to classes and hosting meals at my home, I've been rather negligent in updating my website for classes, something I consider a bit of a chore, as I'm not computer literate! I'd rather be standing at the stove, giving cooking classes!

I'm updating my class schedules for May and June, especially as June school holidays start and employers and their families travel overseas for holidays. As I myself will be taking a trip from end June to third week of July, I'd like to make the most use of the next few weeks for classes and hope all who would like to send their domestic helpers especially, look at the schedules and text me on 96757611 or email me if interested. I've a few maids waiting but it's not easy to arrange for classes as there is a variety of requests. I was recently happily rewarded by an employer who wrote after sending their maid to class " First, many thanks for helping Johanna with some easy and practical daily dishes. You've given her useful kitchen lessons for which she's grateful. Definitely, we're seeing some versatile deliciousness in her cooking skills. Second, Kam siah for your cook book".

Currently, teaching the basics and intricacies of Peranakan/Singapore food remains a main and important goal for both Singaporeans as well as overseas visitors. Hosting young ladies who want to learn to cook before they tie the knot has also become popular, as friends will usually arrange a "Hens" party for their bride-to-be friend. Overseas visitors from all over the world have come to learn to cook and enjoy dishes like beef rendang, chicken satay, nonya laksa, etc., followed by a meal with me.

I have been receiving requests for different types of classes and it's hard to accommodate if requests are mainly for 1 person. So I'm just going to put up my monthly schedules based on some requests and if you are interested please email/text me and if I can get 3 pax I will start the class. Current request is for One-Dish Meals for a course of 6 classes. Details have been posted. 

You can also check my facebook page grandmothersrecipes for postings and pictures of dishes cooked and enjoyed by many who have learned authentic Peranakan/Singaporean dishes with fresh ingredients and without msg and other artificial flavoring. Usually, I have requests for class cum meal to celebrate a birthday or just a get-together with friends and family. Prices will be quoted based on your requirement and will range from $90 to $170 per pax.

At the same time, I also cater to requests for packed meals/special Peranakan dishes for delivery for those celebrating an event/family gathering at home. If interested, just go to "Order Dishes" on this website for the details.

Please note that I need a deposit of 20% for classes and any last-minute cancellation will result in forfeit of deposit.

All ingredients are provided and you only need to bring your own containers to pack back the food cooked if not eaten after the class.

If you are interested, sms me at 96757611 or email me at  or call 64597549 / 96757611 to book.
