    What to Expect
    Hungry? We hope so! It’s time to step into the kitchen and get to know Singapore through some of its iconic local dishes. Join us for a hands-on cooking experience where you’ll learn how to make popular Singaporean treats like chilli crab sauce and pandan chiffon cake, as well as snacks such as pineapple tarts and ondeh-ondeh, (a type of soft and chewy Asian dessert).

    We’ll start with Pandan chiffon cake, Singapore's most loved cake, has been touted as one of the world's best cakes. The highlight of this cake is pandan, which not only gives it a beautiful fragrance, but also its signature green hue. This light and fluffy chiffon of Asian origin might look unassuming, but every bite will definitely leave you wanting more. The chef will demonstrate how to put the cake together, so there will be nothing to distract you from learning his method. 

    Next up is demonstration on how to make chilli crab sauce — with a twist. Beer is widely used as an ingredient to whip up yummy dishes and we’ll be showing you how to use it to enhance our famous chilli crab sauce, served with crabmeat on a bed of salad. Even home cooks can master this dish with our winning and easy recipe!  

    We’ll get hands on now with our next recipe, pineapple tarts, which are widely savoured during festive seasons such as Chinese New Year as pineapple, when pronounced in mandarin, means bringing good fortune.

    Lastly, you’ll get to make ondeh-ondeh from scratch. The popular Asian dessert is soft and chewy thanks to the sweet potato and glutinous rice flour it’s made with. It is then filled with gula melaka (palm sugar) and covered with desiccated coconut. This authentic recipe is fuss-free and can be done in a short time.

    After all that cooking and eating, we’ll enjoy a teatime break with a refreshing drink.

    My bridesmaids and I signed up for Lena's cooking class as an unconventional bachelorette party activity, and we had so much fun! Lena's instructions and recipes were easy to follow (and replicate at home), with the ondeh ondeh being my personal favourite. It had a chewy

    We really enjoyed the hands on environment with a personalised one on one leaning experience. This was more than just a cooking class as our teacher went above and beyond by recommending restaurants, bars and places to eat that only the locals know about. We learnt so much about

    What a lovely day I had with Lena. As luck would have it, I ended up with a one-on-one cooking experience for the afternoon. After taking a few minutes to feel comfortable with each other, Lena and I began to cook through the menu. We made yummy treats that I'll never forget.

    Had a wonderful afternoon cooking beautiful local dishes with Lena.It was so much fun and I learnt a lot about the culture while tasting and experimenting with the local ingredients. Will certainly try to reproduce the dishes back home for my family.

    Lens did a great job with our class. We learned four great but simple recipes easy to make at home. Then we all tasted our creations - great way to spend an afternoon in Singapore and keep out of the heat or rain! Thanks Lena! Ash and Chris
