Advanced 6-course classes for Anyone

This 6-Day course of 3 dishes each was planned at the request of some who had attended the Basic classes and wanted to learn more. They would also be most suitable for those who already know how to cook and would like to learn more Peranakan dishes and make rempahs from scratch. The dishes are flexible and can change to suit some wishes.

The cost is $720 for the 6 classes or $140/ for an individual class. An ample serving of each dish will be given away after the class.

Day 1

1) Hong Kong Rose Flavoured Chicken with Wanton your own "1 Michelin Star" chicken and pair it with wanton mee!

Day 2

Day 3
