We did Ruqxana's cookery course and had so much fun! She was very knowledgeable about the ingredients and where they came from, And the dishes we made were delicious! This course was especially good as it was at her own home, not a stuffy kitchen. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Singapore whether you are a foodie or... More

If you are a foodie, this is a lovely way to not only learn to cook Singapore style, but also the fact that you are doing so in a private house rather than a purpose built catering school. There were 3 of us in the class and between us we made Hainanese Chicken Rice. Ruqxana is very friendly and knowledgeable... More

A real hands-on experience and so many great tips on how to adjust quantities to suit individual tastes.It was so much fun and the food was so good I couldn't believe I'd cooked it! Ruqxana was very helpful and down to earth and so obviously... More

I am not sure that I will be able to recreate all of these dished in American Midwest, but I... More

Ruqxana creates a wonderfully relaxed and fun environment in her outdoor kitchen in which to learn hands-on how to cook some delicious dishes. She is knowledgeable and passionate about food and passes on this enthusiasm when you are in her kitchen. I took the Singaporean Favourites 1 class where we were paired up with other participants to cook nonya laksa... More

Whether you are in Singapore for years or a few days, this is a wonderful learning (and eating) experience if you enjoy cooking. It's a 3-hour, hands-on class taught by Ruqxana, who has 14 years' experience, conducted in her covered patio teaching kitchen. She teaches general cooking principles (such as balancing flavors) in addition to the specific recipes we made... More

Having visited Northern India last year I wanted to learn how to cook the food I had enjoyed so much. This is the way to learn: in a home kitchen with Ruqxana supervising, advising and... More

I have taken numerous cooking classes around the world including the Culinary Institute of America in Napa. I learned more in the 3 hours of Roxannes class than I did while attending 3 days at the CIA! Fun and Fabulous!!
