Take a trip to an island north-west of Singapore – and half a decade into the past – for my most special cooking class.
This class is held in a 100-year old house on stilts on Pulau Ubin, a 10.19 km² island which has held out on urban development, and is reminiscent of Singapore of the 1960s.
To get there, we will take a 10-minute bumboat ride from Changi Jetty, and then it is a short stroll to the home of Madam Kamariah and her family, who have grown up in the house. They form part of an island community that is just 60-strong.
|Min. no. of students per class||20|
|Max. no. of students per class||60|
(Includes the ingredients for the cooking class, the ferry ride to and from the island, transport by van on the island, and refreshments)
Among other dishes, you’ll learn how to cook a unique – and healthy – Malay dish called Nasi Kerabu. This dish uses 30 different jungle herbs gathered in the vicinity.
