Past Funzing Participants:
Thank you Charlene for organising your most informative and fun sessions. Having been to both your sessions, I have not been disappointed in your delivery and approach. Unlike the sterile environments of formal culinary schools, your teaching of the fine arts of Peranakan kueh-making is reminiscent of the joy and camaraderie of the traditional Peranakan households of old, where everyone participated as a team taking turns on various tasks whilst taking pointers from the matriach. What I enjoyed about your lessons is your practical down-to-earth and no-nonsense approach to de-mystifying the intricacies of kueh making and making the art accessible even to the most basic of home cooks. I truly enjoyed your wealth of knowledge of organic cooking, the peranakan use of plants and herbs, and was impressed with the environmentally friendly efforts you made in the production of your creations. Your instructions were very clear, and I appreciated that you allowed me to video you describing your recipes and methods. Thank you also for the well written recipe that you gave us for the Ondeh Ondeh session, even though it was not strictly necessary as you had allowed us to video you explaining the recipe and process, indeed, your explanation went much further than the recipe as it dealt with flexibility in measures, varying methodologies, food tasting and the need for "agaration". I also appreciated your reasonable pricing levels as this would allow me to come to more of your future sessions. My daughter is the joyful recipient of the kuehs we produced on both sessions and she loved every morsel of our creations! :) Keep up the good work, and thank you for keeping the Peranakan heritage alive! I hope to see you soon at your next session!
Many thanks for the in depth feedback. I try my best to deliver as much as I can to my students so that they can take this knowledge and keep Peranakan cooking alive for many more years to come. Never would I imagine to carry on a family recipe by teaching it to others but I'm glad I did!
Reasonable pricing and good coach to student ratio. Will recommend to go for the lesson as many information is coached in the lesson.
