On 30th March, our participants came together with family and friends for an exciting culinary afternoon at Allspice Institute. It was a celebration of fun, food and bonding with loved ones, as everyone donned their aprons and learned how to cook three mouth-watering Peranakan-inspired dishes that were specially created for the masterclass.

“I actually signed up for the previous Domestic Diva masterclass in 2017, and enjoyed it quite a lot. So when this year’s one came along, I was really excited and jio-ed my friends along,” says participant Yen Nee.

Another participant, Danielle, revealed that she brought along her husband Nigel to celebrate his belated birthday. “He loves to cook, so this masterclass is actually a birthday gift for him!” she says.

Besides getting an exclusive hands-on experience, participants also got to get up close with a few of our Domestic Diva Award winners including Skippy, Royal Umbrella, and Tefal. Check out what they learned to cook (and steal some chef tips along the way!) in the galleries below:
