This truly is my most special class. It is held in a 100-year old Malay Kampong (village) House on Pulau Ubin, a small island (10.19 km²) situated in the north east of Singapore. There is a small community of about 60 villagers living there who are holding out urban development so taking a trip there is like visiting Singapore of the 1960’s.We take a 10-minute bumboat ride from Changi Jetty and then stroll to the kampong house that belongs to Madam Kamariah’s family – who was born and brought up in the house. At the house, you will learn how to make the little known healthy Malay dish, Nasi Kerabu, using 30 different types of wild jungle herbs which we will collect around the house.
The menu will be:
1. Nasi Kerabu (Herbed Rice)
2. Sambal Belachan Tumis
3. Butter Prawns
