    A wonderful experience
    We had a wonderful time at this cooking class. Thank you so much to Annie and Joanne. We learnt a lot about Singapore food and culture. Annie explained everything so well. Both ladies were very friendly and patient. The equipment was very clean and the hygiene level brilliant. It was a very enjoyable morning and then we were able to enjoy the delicious lunch. I look forward to recreating these delicacies when we return home. Highly recommend this class.

    We had a fantastic time with our host Sara. She was a wealth of information about local customs as well as making the cooking course enjoyable. The curry we made will definitely be tried at home. Highly recommend this.

    Team Bonding activity
    Food playground did an amazing job in coordinating this. I contacted Daniel to request for a quotation and was given details on how and what will be conducted. We were impress from the start because there was no hidden cost and the interaction was smooth. Annie and Cindy were our host for the day, they gave us clear instructions and guided us throughout the session. The team bonding was a success, the place was clean and perfect for the 14 of us. We had fun whipping up 3 healthy dishes. We highly recommend food playground for company looking for team bonding activities! Location was great to, it was walking distance from chinatown MRT, definitely convenient!

    Fun and educational cooking class at Food Playground
    We had the best time with learning to cook a traditional dish (3 of them actually) with Mary and Annie. Besides learning to cook some great Indian dishes, we also learned some cultural history, all while having fun. Not only would we do another cooking class with Food Playground, we would highly recommend them to others as well.

    Perfect way to spend half a day!!
    Ann was such a wonderful host and teacher! Our family of four (2 adults and two teenagers) had such a great cooking experience. We all thoroughly enjoyed learning how to make authentic food from scratch and also learning a bit about Singapore cuisine and history along the way. Very grateful and very full at the end of our session after enjoying all of our efforts at the dining table! We had a lovely group of 7 people in our class. Highly recommend!!!!! 10/10

My partner and I had a brilliant time taking this cooking class. Food Playground are very professional and well-run, and we came away much more knowledgeable. Thanks so much to Annie and the rest of the team for a great experience and top class teaching. We are cooking forward to making nasi lemak at home!

Fantastic cooking class in the heart of Singapore's Chinatown. We cooked a menu of classics including Nasi Lemak - all from scratch. Before we started cooking, we also had a brief crash course on local delicacies and how to order them in hawker centres etc. Even though I have Singaporean heritage and regularly visit, this was really interesting and helpful.

Instructor Annie was both very knowledgeable and lively throughout - while being extremely attentive to each participant. The kitchen was very calm and clean.

I can't wait to cook these dishes at home and Annie was very helpful in discussing substitutes for hard-to-find ingredients. I think this is a fantastic course to do while visiting Singapore and I am already planning future visits to Food Playground to try out different menus.

Great way to learn how to cook a few local dishes, while understanding more about Singaporean heritage. Our instructor was fantastic, and ensured an engaging and fun experience. Also very convenient location right in the centre of China town. Would definitely recommend!

As the world gets smaller and cultures blend, one thing that remains unique is food. I think that learning to make a dish from place you are visiting is the best way to experience the culture. A recipe, is my favorite souvenir. The class at food playground was one of our best experiences in food travel. Not only did we make unique traditional recipes, we learned about other foods from Singapore. For example; a carrot cake dish that is not cake! You will take home your best memory by taking this class. I highly recommend it.
