Photos of some of my bakes.
In the past, Terence did bring up this activity to me about conducting lessons on cooking and baking for members.
I have been busy with work, family and social life. Well, I guess its now or never so I am putting up this post to gauge the response.
I am no expert but I have attended several baking lessons and have many many… years of cooking and baking experience.
I started cooking for my family when I was 9+ years old when my mother was taken ill. All my older sisters were in the morning session in school and I was in the afternoon session. Those days, there was hardly any supermarkets so marketing had to be done in the morning.
From then on, I started to develop a love for baking too. My first pineapple tarts were rock hard. That time, I didn’t understand about gluten development so I pulled and stretched my dough too much. My mum said I could crack the wall if I threw my pineapple tarts at it. And when she asked me for some of my tarts to take with her to visit my aunt in the kampong, I was so happy that she wants to let my aunt try it. But she burst my happy bubble when she said its to throw at the dogs in the kampong if they tried to attack her. But I was not one to be easily discouraged. Now my pineapple tarts and cookies are yummy (if I may say so) LOL!
I hope to be able to do a 3-in-1.
That is to have the cookie baking session followed by tea to enjoy the fruits of our labour and talk about anything (and karaoke optional). I shall also make something sweet or savoury (with compliments) to complement the cookies and coffee/tea for the “tea time”. You pay only for the ingredients and miscellaneous items at cost for example, baking paper, paper cups etc. Basically to share what I know and in the process to have fun together. I am not making any profit from this activity.
Date & Time: TBC (probably early afternoon on Saturdays in the third quarter of the year, when I am in the festive mood)
Venue: In my humble chicken coop in Bedok
No of Pax: 6 pax per session and strictly for members only.

From here, if there is enough interest and support, we could move on to more “difficult” cookie recipes and maybe include some simple cake and bread making too. However, I can’t teach cake deco except piping of cream rosettes.
Yay!!! Weekend is round the corner. Have a good one!
Stay Healthy & Happy! Its a bonus if you are lucky too!
