How many times has this same situation happened to you?
“Mom, make me some food?” “Get it yourself.” “Never mind, I’m not hungry.” – “@RealTed“
Fret not! Fellow Singaporean food blogger, Denise Fletcher, has recently penned a book containing some easy-to-follow recipes of Singaporean food for the novice of cooks. What is most useful is the fact that Denise offers suggestions of substitutes for perhaps, harder-to-find ‘authentic’ ingredients needed in some of the recipes. Recipes include Quick Devil Curry, Beef Rendang, No Roast Char Siew, and even how to cook Teochew Porridge. To entice you further, here’s a few pages straight out from the book – provided by the publisher, Epigram Books.
A brief introduction of Denise – She has a certificate in food preparation from Shatec Institutes and was chef at both SATS Catering and chef-owner of a restaurant named Eurasian Delights.
The official book launch for the book will be held on Saturday 21 July 2012, 2 – 3 pm at Books Kinokuniya, Ngee Ann City.
There will be fun activities including chances to win copies of Mum’s Not Cooking in a mini cooking contest, a tasting of one of the recipes from it, a chat session with my audience and a book signing. (http://singaporeshiok.blogspot.sg/p/book-launch.html)
