Journeying to Food Playground alone is an eye-opener for new visitors to Singapore, as it sits on the threshold of the past (the lovely conserved shophouses on Craig Road) and present (the commercial offices on Tanjong Pagar). Food Playground occupies a unit in a shophouse and is tastefully designed, with a spacious hall for briefings and dining, and a well-equipped kitchen.
Our cooking class was themed around healthy eating and how slow carbs could improve one's diet. It started off with an informative presentation by Food Playground's in-house dietitian. It was great that the presentation was candid and interactive, and not a one-way lecture.
The cooking class itself was the highlight. I love the colourful cooking implements and utensils, and they are of excellent quality, which made cooking here a luxurious experience!
Our instructor for the day, Shalu, was very patient and engaging. Another instructor, Lena, was also on hand to provide additional guidance and comic relief.
It was lovely to sit together with all the other participants at the end of the cooking class, tasting the fruits of our labour.
Food Playground is an excellent way to learn something useful, while bonding with your partner and making new friends. I'll recommend this to visitors to Singapore as well as Singaporeans who want a unique activity in the day.
