We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude for helping us with our special activity. Your venue and equipments are superb and all the contestants are unanimous in praising is as the ideal place for these kinds of events. Kudos and heartiest thanks to CHEF LORETA VALDEZ for being so accommodating and helpful with all our needs. She imparted cooking techniques and advices which are valuable to non-professional cooks such as our contestants. Rest assured we will recommend the place to our friends. Cheers for Palate Sensations! Cheers to Chef Loreta!

A big thank you to Lynette & Brenda for making our cooking class a day to remember. Learnt 3 new asian dishes. The instruction Brenda gave was informative and simple to understand and she was helpful at all times. The best part was obviously eating our finished meals at the end.
I would recommend a private class like this to anyone interested in learning how to cook local cuisine. We got so much more out of it and the staff were lovely on top of it all.
thanks again!

We went on the market visit and then the cookery morning.

The market visit was very well organised - met at the agreed location 5 minutes early and Lynette took us round the local market talking about everything - from the food to the way the ordinary Singaporeans live their lives. We sampled some typical foods for a quick snack and then it was a short 5 mins. taxi ride back to the kitchens.

There things were very well set up - the aprons went on and Lynette put us to work!

Although the ingredients for the three dishes we had chosen to make (trust me, 3 is enough work and food!) were measured out there was still plenty of hands on prep. required. Chopping, peeling, grinding etc. gave us a good understanding of the ingredients and their role - Lynette knew all the details and gave us a good commentary on what we were doing and why.

Then we fried/roasted and wok'ed our way through the cooking phase - being shown how to use chop sticks as cooking tools etc. All very hands on - it was our food and we were preparing it under guidance but nonetheless doing the tasks.

About 90 minutes after we arrived at the kitchens there emerged the most marvellous lunch - 3 interesting dishes - had we really prepared food as authentic and flavoursome as that?

Now we are the proud owners of Palate Sensations aprons and also the detailed recipes - there's no stopping us!

Many thanks to Lynette and the team for an informative, well structured and very tasty morning. This is a great way to get a real flavour of Singapore!

I am a return student at Palate Sensations and highly recommend the cooking classes. I recently took the two day intensive on Kueh with chef Loh Shi Erh and Dimsum pastries with Lynette Foo. Both sessions were excellent.

The facilities are well equipped, scrupulously clean and the instructors knowledgeable & well organized. I particularly like the level of professionalism displayed by the staff and expected of the students. This is not edutainment demo cooking - quality ingredients are on hand but they have to measured, weighed, prepared, cooked & presented by the students (with no wash-up! ;-)

Palate Sensations offers a diverse range of cooking classes and cuisines. Learning how to make kueh and dimsum is normally only available through aunties or professional chef schools. Since I had neither (auntie nor chef school), this was excellent way to learn and a great alternative to the one-item-at-a-time options available to the casual student. The school also offers corporate team building events, parties and longer, multi-week cooking series. I've not attended but they look well organized.

My classes were ideal class sizes - three/four - which is enough for everyone to be hands on and sufficient so that the instructor could answer any questions.

I've been to a lot of cooking classes, from home kitchens to Le Cordon Bleu. I can honestly say that Palate Sensations is one of the best.

I highly recommend.

I have been here before to do cooking classes and returned for a second recently. The classes are well planned and hands on, very enjoyable. Easy to get to from Boena Vista MRT station.
