      Cooking classes as I like them
      Thanks Colin for sharing with us and with patience, your best tips to cook Peranakan cuisine. We will try at home and let you know. It was a great experience. When going to Singapore restaurants or even overseas we have better knowledge about the Hokkien Mee. Ngoh Hiang and the sweet Kueh dadar. Many many thanks for this great experience!!!

      We did the TCM class with Collin. It was very good. He’s knowledgeable and sincere about what he is teaching. It was fun to cook a chicken soup. My favorite is the tea we made. I highly recommend this class as part of your Singapore experience.

      Traditionell Singaporean cooking class
      We cooked 3 traditional Singaporean dishes with Colin. We were only a small group of 3 people and he took the time to explained everything. He has some really good knowledge about food and how to teach people. Can highly recommend it.

      Thai Thai!
      Colin was knowledgeable and timed all the activities well. I best enjoyed his sharing and recommendations of Thai ingredients, condiments, products etc from his firsthand experience. His demonstration and guidance in the cooking part of the package was helpful and interesting too! I'm not a 'cooking person' but after the hands-on cooking i felt the three dishes were something i could easily do.

      Hainan Cultural Cooking Class from Esplanade
      I learnt many new things today! From nuggets of information on our forefathers, origins of the name 'Tiong Bahru' to how I should bread pork chops well, this trip has it all. Chef Colin is knowledgeable on both the Hainanese culture and cooking, and was patient in answering our many questions. I was a little apprehensive about signing up for a tour solo, but I'm glad I did, for I really enjoyed myself. The food was yummy too!

      An engaging and refreshing morning: Hainanese Cultural Tour and Cooking Class by Chef Colin
      This tour caught my attention because my hubby's family is Hainanese, and I've never had a chance to explore the rich heritage and history. Colin led us through a succinct tour of the main Hainanese heritage district, peppered with interesting anecdotes and trivial. We proceeded to the cooking studio to cook some signature Hainanese dishes. Colin gave clear instructions and guidance, with lots of patience. What's really engaging were the stories of the food, which transported us back to our rich heritage. Colin is vibrant and engaging, so there were no dull moments. He also kindly adapted to my food allergy, for which I am really thankful. My classmate, Aunties A and ML, say they really enjoy the session so much and send their appreciation to Colin :)

      Must-attend "Hokkien Cultural Community Tour" guided by Chef Colin
      Being a Cantonese, it was intriguing to learn the Hokkien History and Culture. I really appreciate Guide cum Chef Colin who conducted the mini walk tour to highlight the chronicle of Hokkien Immigrants and their immerse contribution to our Local History. With respect to their culinary skill of Fujian Cuisine, participants got to cook Fuzhou Red Wine Chicken and Stir Fried Rice Cake. The taste of the Red Fermented Ingredient was amazingly addictive. Overall, Chef Colin absolutely known his trade deep-in and it's definitely worth attending this 3-hours course. Highly recommended.

      Look for Chef Colin Goh
      Group size of 10 is just ideal. The hands on Hainan cooking experience was the most fun part - relaxing & jovial. Chef Colin's guidance & explanation throughout the session was precise & easy to follow.

    I attended the Discover Hainan Tour with a friend and had lots of fun learning about the history of Hainanese immigrants to Singapore and cooking up a storm with Chef Colin. With most borders being closed due to the pandemic, this was a fun activity to do locally and I definitely recommend it! The tour and cooking class are good for both locals and foreign visitors to Singapore. For Singaporeans, we can even use our SingapoRediscover voucher for the tour! My friend and I were totally stuffed with foods that we cooked. Good value for money!

    Ever wondered how Lavender Street got its name? How the butter Kopi came into existence?
    The 1hr tour was a trip back into the past filled with interesting stories that I will remember for a long time to come.

    The 2hr cooking session was conducted in a very hands-on fashion. Be prepared to get your hands dirty (I got to chop up a whole chicken with a chinese cleaver!) and you will be rewarded with mouth watering culinary creations. We made Ang Zhao Chicken and Hokkien Rice cakes. The Ang Zhao Chicken brought back memories of Chinese New Year dish that my grandmother used to make for us. Yummy!!!

    Chef Colin is very friendly and I highly recommend this Culinary Experience with him! Two thumbs up!!

    I enjoyed the cooking lessons very much and highly recommend them to anyone who would like to have a fun time learning about heritage and cooking some delicious food. Colin is an excellent teacher who takes time to explain the steps for cooking the dishes and provide many helpful cooking tips. In addition he is an entertaining guide who showed us many interesting photos of the past during our walking tour. The experience exceeded my expectations..

    It is interesting to experience a little Thai culture at this part of Singapore. Chef Colin has certainly been very entertaining and informative. My wife and I have learnt quite a bit from him and are appreciative of this meaningful bonding time he has helped to facilitate at the convenience of our city state.

    This experience was fun and suitable for cooks of all skill levels. It began with a walking tour explaining some aspects of culture and history in Singapore, which were new to both my daughter and myself. The tour helped me see certain aspects of local culture in a new light, and encouraged me to begin thinking more about the origins of various practices we may have as Singaporeans. Chef Colin is an engaging and riveting guide and has many interesting gems to share. Additionally, the tour appropriately paced and just the right duration as well.

    After the walking tour, we were shuttled by bus to the cooking studio, where we embarked on our culinary journey. Chef Colin patiently provided us guidance as we tried to recreate iconic local dishes, and included helpful pointers and principles that can be applied to ensure success when attempting to reproduce the dishes at home. Though it was our first time cooking those dishes, they came out tasty and were well-received by our family members.

    The entire process was smooth, fuss-free and thoroughly enjoyable. I would recommend this experience for participants of all ages and skill levels - it makes for a perfect family or couple activity and is a wonderful way to learn about Singaporean culture while also being able to gain the satisfaction of creating something with one's own hands. Thank you Chef Colin for an amazing experience! 😊

    Chef Colin was a wonderful walking tour guide telling us interesting bits & pieces of Thai history & culture along our Beach Road & Golden Mile Complex in our Discover Thailand Cooking & walking tour. After the walking tour, we had a fun time cooking in pairs in the Let's Go Tour shop with Chef Colin helping out in the ingredient preparation while also demonstrating the cooking procedures. Our 3 dishes turned out really yummy! I would highly recommend this cooking tour to those who love Thai food and wants to have hands on experience in learning how to cook tom-yum soup (using prawns shells for the soup base), papaya salad and the coconut dessert. Although we can't eat in the shop due to covid19 restrictions, we had food tasting before we 'da bao' our food home. Really enjoyed the cooking tour!

    I went solo but never felt alone in the class :) Chef Colin knew us by name and because of the small number (max 10 pax), it felt cosy and it was fun learning tips and tricks of cooking.

    We started out by having a learning journey about the history of the Hainanese in Singapore around Beach Road, Middle Road, Seah Street and Purvis Street. Chef Colin who brought us around was clear and concise in his sharing and was happy to answer our questions. I learned many new things and it was a very memorable experience!

    It was followed by a Hainan cooking experience where we were brought over to the cooking studio by a shuttle bus. There we were broken up into groups of 3-3-4 and we learnt to make Hainanese Chicken Rice, Pork Chop and Kueh Yi Bua. My group was wonderful and we made sure everyone got a chance to cook and be part of the whole cooking experience, together with Chef Colin, who jumped in whenever we had a bit of trouble ;p

    Kudos to Chef Colin for being such a great teacher!!! He was calm, sincere and gave very clear concise instructions. He was ready to share information on food brand preferences also. This was useful as we can take the learning back home and make the dishes by ourselves.

    As the saying goes, "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime". I am very confident that I am able to surprise my friends and family by making Authentic Hainanese Chicken Rice at home! Thank you Chef Colin!

    Will definitely look out for and join your other classes! Keep up the awesome work Chef Colin! :D

    Suggestions:
    1) Don't bring your car. Starting point and Ending point are 2 different locations.
    2) Wear comfortable shoes to walk about and be on your feet for a while as you tour and cook :)

    Chef Colin provides a wonderful experience for my family. My mum, my wife, and I have so much fun during the session. There was 3 dishes to learn, and we get the full experience of doing it all from scratch. The content was good, and he made sure that everyone participates in the actual cooking. It was raining heavily that day, and there was a wet weather programme. Colin went through the history of the various streets that Hainanese stayed in.

    I have been on a Hainan Cultural Cooking class and the experience I have got is just amazing. The tour starts with a walking tour and continues with a cooking master class where under the guidance of Chef Colin we were cooking local hainanese dishes. Organization of a tour is excellent! You get to know the history of hainanese culture, learn about local spices and cook traditional dishes. The Chef Colin is very professional and dedicated to what he is doing. I will definitely go to another tour as there are a few of them. Definitely recommended!!!
