2.00 p.m. – 3.00 p.m.
Kinokuniya Singapore Main Store, Crossroads
What do you do when you are homesick for some Singapore food, but cannot really cook, mum is nowhere nearby, or there is no hawker centre you can shuffle to in your shorts and flip-flops? Cook some yourself!
Adopting the loving authority and voice of one who is accustomed to creating friendly recipes for those who are simply clueless or just rather lazy about cooking, author Denise Fletcher devotes her culinary experience to creating a companionable book for all the Singapore food favourites that you, your friends or colleagues may crave. Recognising that you may not easily obtain ‘authentic’ ingredients if you are based overseas, the author also suggests food substitutions to help you approximate that taste for home.
Hailing from Eurasian heritage and a proud born-and-bred Singaporean, Denise Fletcher is an enthusiastic cook and a gifted writer. The author has a certificate in food preparation from Shatec Institutes and has been a chef in SATS Catering. She was also the owner of a restaurant named Eurasian Delights, which served Eurasian and Singapore dishes.
