It was fun learning and making purple "ondeh ondeh" and at the same time bonding with the team at Food Playground. The owner, Daniel Tan, took lots of photos and you leave with wonderful memories.

Thank you for taking time to share your experience.

At Food Playground, we want our customers to enjoy the cooking experience, so we always find new ways to inject fun and pleasant surprises into our classes. We are happy that you enjoy making the sweet potato version of ondeh-ondeh, which is not only healthier but also more vibrant and nice to see :)

We also understand that our customers want to bring home fond memories of their time with us, so we make sure we take lots of candid photos for them so they can share with their families and friends easily on the social media.

We look forward to seeing you again in our upcoming classes !

I thoroughly enjoyed the recipes and cooking process for health eating and cooking at Food Playground. The facilities are clean, instructor Derrick was knowledgeable and engaging and we adjourned for the meal at a friendly dining hall.

Food Playground really looks into the details and little arrangements to make their event a success.

Thank you for taking time to give us your feedback !

Derrick and I are happy to hear that you have enjoyed attending our nutritional cooking class. Hands-on cooking is indeed a very effective way to pick up healthier eating habits through improving one's nutritional knowledge and an experiential approach in the preparation of healthier meals.

We have also designed our class to be informal and interactive so our participants feel at ease to consult our in-house dietitian on health-related topics during the class.

We look forward to seeing you soon at our upcoming classes. Thank you !

What a great idea to bring people together outside of the office and do some team bonding. You learn to cook from passionate ladies who are experts at their craft. At the same time you learn about nutrition without losing out on taste. Finally, you accomplish your initial objective of bonding your team in a fun filled occasion with lots of teasing and laughter. The results are there for all to see…the smiles on their faces and the contented looks of satisfied stomaches.

Thank you for your kind endorsement in what we do !

Yes, at Food Playground, we firmly believe that food helps to bring people closer together, especially so in Singapore where most of us love good food! Whether for business or for leisure, cooking in a group is a great way to create unforgettable memories together. We are really happy that you see the tremendous value we create from our hands-on nutritional cooking classes.

We look forward to having you and your group for a fun hands-on cookout at Food Playground again in the near future !

I'll be the first to say that i'm one of those people who rarely cooks, except during uni days when i was studying overseas. Even then, those meals i prepared as a student were merely instant noodles accompanied with some basic ingredients all thrown into the pot.

When i attended a Nutrition Cooking Class at The Food Playground sometime in July 2012, i learnt to cook olive fried rice with chicken, fried vegetables with garlic and a wonderful dessert comprising of bananas and yogurt. The trainer was friendly and knowledgeable which made cooking a fun experience. Most importantly, the demostration was clear and we were able to ask questions freely. At the end of the cooking lesson, you get to savour your very own cooking which was really cool. Overall, i really enjoyed the lesson and will not hesitate to encourage those thinking of learning how to cook nutritional meals to give The Food Playground a go!

Thank you for taking time to share your experience after attending our nutritional cooking class.

Nutritional cooking and healthy food need not be boring and bland, so we are really happy that you not only enjoyed the hands-on format of our class, but more importantly also enjoyed the taste of the dishes we taught.

In fact, research has shown that people learn much better and retain more when they learn experientially rather than just seeing or being lectured about nutrition.

We look forward to seeing you and your friends again in the near future for more hands-on cooking fun at food playground !

Well the Food playground is the place for you! I attended one of the awesome cooking lessons,& I must say it was a cooking lesson with a twist! The wonderfully friendly staff take you for a tour of one of the markets close by, plus you learn some of the history of the area, then you return to the well appointed kitchen - with modern new appliances and you cook an amazing meal! with the help of the staff, who give you some great tips during the lesson. MMMM next comes the best part of all! you get to eat your yummy dish! :) Well worth the experience!!! :)
