What to Expect
Meet you host Nithia at her home for you private cooking experience. Nithia is a Singaporean of Sri Lankan and South Indian heritage and was educated in the UK. Her cooking style reflects the mix of cultures with many South Indian and Sri Lankan dishes, Singaporean favorites, and South East Asian flavors. Nithia lives with her mother in a comfortable apartment in a residential neighborhood outside of central Singapore. Her home is decorated with care and filled with the aromas of her cooking.

Having lived overseas for many years, Nithia can provide expert guidance on how to substitute ingredients that might be difficult to find in your home grocery store. She loves experimenting with new cuisines and ingredients and even runs a small supper club that organizes themed dinner events. She is a passionate supporter of the arts and can give recommendations on events that are occurring during your visit. When she's not in the kitchen, Nithia works as a freelance marketing communications professional.

Join Nithia in her kitchen to learn to prepare an authentic Singaporean-Indian meal. In your hands-on cooking lesson you will learn to prepare 2-3 dishes, which will be served with other dishes that Nithia prepared in advance. You can expect your cooking lesson to last about 1.5 - 2 hours.

After leaving the kitchen, enjoy the meal you helped prepare with Nithia at her table. The menu will include traditional Indian dishes, prepared in a Sri Lankan and Singaporean style. She might serve her Sri Lankan chicken curry, prawns cooked with green chilies and coriander, fish head curry (a classic Singaporean-Indian dish), laksa, or Malay dishes such as nasi lemak (coconut rice served with a variety of garnishes) or Malay curries. She is adept at vegetarian cuisine and can also do stir fry vegetable dishes and local noodle dishes.

Leave with new recipes, an appreciation of Singaporean culture, and a true glimpse of a local’s life.
