What Parents Say About Our Boot Camp

"I enrolled Culinary Skills Boot Camp for Lower Secondary Students for my 2 girls.

Bootcamp is 9am to 5pm over 2 days during school holiday period, with no time for mobile usage, is not something teenagers look forward to.... BUT they had fun! and more importantly, they learned their way around the kitchen.

And the food! OMG, the food.. Pizza (from scratch), Pasta (from scratch), Roselle tea and Jam (did I mention from scratch?), tiramisu (you get the idea...), butter cakes (smells heavenly..), and cheese cake...

The instructors were amazing. Patient with the children, motherly, they have their hearts in the right places. Daniel is generous, not only did we bring back food to last a week, we were given (free!) ingredients to last at least 2 weeks!

All in all a good experience for kids, and highly recommended. Will definitely join the next Boot Camp if time permits.

Bravo to Daniel and team!"

"My daughter and her friend attended this culinary skills boot camp for 12 year olds and had an absolutely smashing time. First time at the wet market, she learnt so much from the dedicated and friendly aunties.

She promptly whipped up the dishes again when she came home. Can't wait to attend the next edition!"

"My daughter attended the 2-day boot camp and learnt to cook a variety of local dishes ... pleasantly surprised to get to taste her efforts, ranging from Ang Ku kueh to kaya to curry puffs!

Especially like the trips to the wet market to buy ingredients which kids these days don’t get exposed to.
She had a great time and I get to enjoy her  yummy treats! Highly recommended!"
