A-cooking we go!

What’s been happening recently?

The annual Cooking Class! This time, organised by Koh Yun and Grace and conducted by the ever-lovely Araya sensei and her assistant, Kaori-san. Same as with last year, the recipes were all Araya sensei’s and this time round, we learnt to make 1) Salad 2) Omurice 3) Curry and 4) Coffee jelly. Good stuff! Take a look at Koh Yun’s incredibly handwriting for a glimpse!

Registration was at 11am, with the participants streaming in all ready and equipped with their cooking gear–aprons, enthusiasm and following the caution of Araya sensei, “only good thoughts”. Apparently, gossip and negativity would affect the quality of the taste!

Check out the gleeful looks on everyone’s faces as they attempted to put into practice Araya sensei’s tips on Japanese homecooking!
