Festive Family Fusion @ Kitchen Culture

Some few weeks ago, my sister asked if I would be interested to attend some food demo organised by Food & Travel magazine in Kitchen Culture. Seeing that it cost only $25/- and include some very healthy goodie bag items, without hesitation, I told her I want to sign up.

For the sake of the goodie bag, she also signed up together with her colleagues, even though she is not into cooking or baking!:p So she signed up on my behalf. So today was "D DAY"! The venue was held in Kitchen Culture at Thye Hong Centre. The place sells VERY expensive kitchen cabinets and kitchen tools. I won't have stepped into it if not for this cooking demo. Today's session is called "Festive Family Fusion", using mostly brown rice and olive oil from Naturel. Isn't that healthy?

The demo was conducted by Chef John See. A regular chef at Kitchen Culture. He used to have a restaurant, but I think he no longer owns a restaurant now, he is free-lancing and teaching cooking & baking as his passion.




Anyway, the food demonstrated today were:
1) Healthy Organic Brown Rice Turkey Salad Apple-Pear and Cranberry


2) Seafood Bouillabaisse (pronouced as bowl-la-base) with Spring Onion Tortilla Bread Toast

This was my favourite! It tasted like lobster bisque, but so much more flavourful!! The tortilla bread toast went very well with the soup! Yummy!!


3) Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting


Not forgetting what I got for my goodie bag- 2kg organic brown rice, 500ml Olive Oil (Cold pressed), 1kg Canola & Sunflower oil and 1L Low Sugar Soya Milk. Very worth the price paid for - $25!



After the demo session, my brother-in-law dropped me off at HV. Without delay, I popped into Shermay's Cooking School to buy my Rose Water! Yippee! And of course, I picked up the vanilla extract again since it was cheaper by $10! Really worth the buys! :) What a fun Saturday, without baking for once!

hey Jane, I used to teach at Kitchen Culture too. If John See teaches Petit Fours, must go and learn..his cakes are delicious! I last taught there in June 2007. Asian Seafood with a group of Australians. :) I love the Global knives there.

Hi Gina,
Ya lor! I thot you were once the Director of Kitchen or something like that right? I saw the older versions of Food & Travel & I thought I saw a picture of you & your name and your articles?? Then I told my sisters (sometime this year) that I "knew" the Director of Kitchen for F&T, but I couldn't find your name anymore! :<
You left that place for quite a while already is it?
Chef John See is a quite a humourous person, and he shares quite generously too! He actually sets up his own company now. Do you want his contact? I can send to you. :)
Err...didn't see the knives. Everything there were like "Prada" of kitchen equipment...

Jane, you see me so 'high'. I am not the director lah. just in charge of all cooking/baking classes when I was at FT magazine. I left in October 2006 to care for my sick mom. She had cancer. and went for op in November 2006. I was the director for another company called Cuisine Asia together with Pauline D Loh who was the MD of the FT mag. I left Cuisine Asia last November to register KC as a biz entity. All these years, KC run as a hobby passion forum only. :) I have John See's contacts. In fact, Kitchen Culture ask me to do some classes with them next year. I need to plan first...Coz Mayer also ask me..very boh eng!
