Best place to learn how to cook Asian food: in the Food Sorceress's own kitchen...


I think that one of the best things to do in Singapore is of course to try the many flavours of Asia: Indian, Malay, Chinese, Thai, Korean, Japanese, Lao and Indonesian.  And if you like to cook, a really neat thing to do is to take a cooking class in Singapore. 

After some intensive Googling we found a small business called Cookery Magic run by Indian lady, Ruqxana, in her home kitchen. Though there are several far larger and slicker-looking learn to cook enterprises in Singapore, most looked to be more about corporate 'team building' than actually learning to cook, so we opted to head out to the burbs on the MRT and try our hands with an Asian curry day at Cookery Magic.

All her cats are named after local spices: cardamom, black pepper, clove etc...
