Peranakan cooking is one of the final frontiers in the culinary world as it defies cooking norms, requires an acute sense of taste and lots of passion to achieve even a simple dish.


On this tour you will be introduced to the Peranakan Chinese culture when you visit Katong and Joo Chiat area. You will enjoy a simple Peranakan lunch in the neighbourhood too. 

This will be followed by a food demonstration. Learn the history of this cooking culture, ingredients and the final points of Peranakan cooking in the only exclusive cooking tour to STGS from a reputable chef cum guide. Food menu items will be decided on the day of the tour.
