    A wonderful experience
    We had a wonderful time at this cooking class. Thank you so much to Annie and Joanne. We learnt a lot about Singapore food and culture. Annie explained everything so well. Both ladies were very friendly and patient. The equipment was very clean and the hygiene level brilliant. It was a very enjoyable morning and then we were able to enjoy the delicious lunch. I look forward to recreating these delicacies when we return home. Highly recommend this class.

    We had a fantastic time with our host Sara. She was a wealth of information about local customs as well as making the cooking course enjoyable. The curry we made will definitely be tried at home. Highly recommend this.

    Team Bonding activity
    Food playground did an amazing job in coordinating this. I contacted Daniel to request for a quotation and was given details on how and what will be conducted. We were impress from the start because there was no hidden cost and the interaction was smooth. Annie and Cindy were our host for the day, they gave us clear instructions and guided us throughout the session. The team bonding was a success, the place was clean and perfect for the 14 of us. We had fun whipping up 3 healthy dishes. We highly recommend food playground for company looking for team bonding activities! Location was great to, it was walking distance from chinatown MRT, definitely convenient!

    Outstanding cooking class. Organised, cool, fun and informative. Plus you get to sit down and eat what cooked. HIGHLY recommend for solo, couples or groups. I went solo and had a great time. Very friendly atmosphere and well worth a visit or two. 10/10.

    Fun and educational cooking class at Food Playground
    We had the best time with learning to cook a traditional dish (3 of them actually) with Mary and Annie. Besides learning to cook some great Indian dishes, we also learned some cultural history, all while having fun. Not only would we do another cooking class with Food Playground, we would highly recommend them to others as well.

    Perfect way to spend half a day!!
    Ann was such a wonderful host and teacher! Our family of four (2 adults and two teenagers) had such a great cooking experience. We all thoroughly enjoyed learning how to make authentic food from scratch and also learning a bit about Singapore cuisine and history along the way. Very grateful and very full at the end of our session after enjoying all of our efforts at the dining table! We had a lovely group of 7 people in our class. Highly recommend!!!!! 10/10

    Fun, food and fabulous experience
    We went last week and had so much fun with Mary and Annie leading us not only a through the fabulous food we prepared from scratch ( a yummy chicken curry, roti jala and tapioca desert) but also the rich heritage of Singapore. I would highly recommend this wonderful experience, you will have a great laugh and time. And of course eat the food you've prepared.

Mary and Helen were amazing teachers not only of delicious Singaporean dishes but also of the country’s history and how it influenced its cuisine. Love their mission to continue to educate and empower women of multiple generations to return to the workforce to continue to contribute to society through the gift of sharing their culture for years to come.

Annie’s enthusiasm for her culture and cooking was infectious. She provided us with a great overview of the different food offerings we could expect to find when eating out in Singapore before guiding our small group in the hands-on cooking lesson.

During the next few hours, we enjoyed learning how to cook our lunch, which was Prawn Sambal, Fragrant Nasi Lemak and Kueh Dadar. Annie provided a lot of tips along the way and made the morning very enjoyable. Thanks also to all the helpers in the background who had prepped items for us and cleaned up our mess along the way.

We highly recommend this cooking experience, it’s a great way to spend a few hours.

We had the best experience learning how to cook curry chicken, Roti Jala, and steamed tapioca cake at the Food Playground! Ann and Sara were fantastic instructors who made the class fun and informative - we not only learned how to cook the planned recipes, but we learned a lot about the rich cultural and food history of Singapore. If I get the chance to return to Singapore, I will definitely sign up for another class - and I will recommend it to all of my friends!
