Katong Community Centre is proud to present its first cooking course in its brand new 5-star kitchen!
From July onwards, Katong Community Centre is organising a series of cooking classes conducted by Executive Chefs for its residents. Executive Chef Eric Teo of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Singapore and President of Singapore Chefs Association is the first Executive Chef to hold his lesson there.
Amidst ripples of laughter, he 'introduced' every new glimmering utensil he use. He was proud to hold a record of 'many first times' in this kitchen. :D
Chef Eric Teo was named the Best Executive Chef of the Year at the World Gourmet Summit Awards in 2006, 2008 and 2009.
He has been actively involved in judging at culinary competitions around the world and mentoring rising chefs as Team Advisor for the Singapore Culinary Team. He also appeared in several TV shows.
Besides his culinary skills, he is reknowned for his fun and lively personality. My son who volunteered with the National Culinary Team in preparation for the Olympiade Der Koche 2008 and attended his cooking classes, is in awe of him. Chef Eric is an inspirational teacher.
At the end of his cooking class, Chef Eric conducted a hilarious lucky draw for the students. The prizes.... the leftovers of 2 pears, half an onion, durian paste, marinated beef....
All the 30 plus students 'fought hard' for each item! lol
