In 6 weekly sessions spread across April and May, participants learned how to prepare a 3-course meal from a variety of cuisines from Indian to Oriental, French, Italian and Arabic. Yummy creations that got a two thumbs up rating from our guests included the Rogan Josh, Chicken Roulade, Khow Suey, Thai sticky rice with mango, Tiramisu and Iftar delicacies – Kibbeh and Kunafa.

Apart from great food, the sessions were interactive and peppered with fun facts, tips, food quizzes and exciting opportunities to win gift coupons and hampers. It was also a wonderful occasion for guests to meet, mingle and dine-in with like-minded gourmands and aspiring chefs.
