Taste Singapore Flavors in the Comforts of Home with Singapore Food Festival’s Free Masterclasses

Mark your calendars!

Now that we’ve been stuck at home for months, it’s only natural that we’re spending more time in the kitchen, preparing home-cooked meals and experimenting with new recipes. Video tutorials have become a godsend for beginner cooks and seasoned foodies alike, and in a few days, we’ll get a treat from Asian masters.

Learn from the masters

On August 22, 2020, Singapore will be hosting a Live Masterclass with Chef Ming Tan from Singapore and our very own international chef and restaurateur, Chef Margarita Forés.

In a class called “2Fast, 2Delicious – Hokks and Clay”, Forés and Tan will be teaching us how to cook two popular Singaporean dishes: Hokkien Mee and Claypot Rice. Hokkien Mee is a noodle dish that’s made with prawns, meat, clams, and dried fish. Meanwhile, Claypot Rice is a rice casserole cooked directly over live coals, giving it that trademark crispiness that Singaporeans love.

“The ‘2Fast, 2Delicious – Hokks and Clay’ class is specially curated for Filipino foodies and we hope that the session will allow Filipino foodies to enjoy Singaporean cuisine from the comfort and safety of their own homes,” says Ruby Liu, Singapore Tourism Board (STB) Area Director for the Philippines.
