The Peranakan Festival Singapore
The month-long Peranakan Festival will sweep visitors into an enriching immersion experience of the fascinating Straits Chinese community.
Activities include a showcase of traditional desserts and cookies nut accompanied by free tastings and a cooking workshop which comes with a personalised certificate and a recipe card. Cooking classes reveal the secrets behind the hard-to-find Nasi Ulam, a delectable rice salad of raw herbs and vegetables, fried and salted fish, that have to be finely julienned and minced and takes hours to prepare. Kids can get into the Peranakan art and craft workshops like stamp carving, silk screen printing and book cover art, where they will be guided to create a Peranakan-inspired composition.
Date: 27 May to 17 June, 11am to 6pm
