I was thrilled when I received the invite for an intimate cooking party and high tea session with my favorite ladies, hosts Michelle Chong and Vivian Lai on Saturday 7th of May. Located in the Garden Hub at Margaret Drive, I arrived at Cookyn Inc with my sister Clarie (below: cream top with black cardigan), Mui Yee and Eunice.
Sassy hosts, Michelle Chong and Vivian Lai at Cookyn Inc.
Michelle’s Steam-Baked Fish Roll. The overall texture is key for this cabbage wrap. The saltiness from the panfried mushrooms and ham, contrasts nicely with the freshness and mushiness of the dory fillet. Different layers of ingredients, steam-baked to perfection, drizzled with sizzling hot ginger and spring onion oil.
Vivian’s Cold Rice Salad with Prawns. Ever tried having cold rice before? Now you can with this refreshing wholesome salad concoction of greens, rice and prawns.
Finally, it’s our turn to recreate those two dishes in our team of 8! A very big thank you to Mui Yee for helping me document the entire cooking process on camera :)
TADAH! Look at our masterpiece! Left: Cold Rice Salad with Prawns. Right: Steam-Baked Fish Roll.
Amidst the landscape of the horticulture hub, spanking new kitchen with rustic and concrete countertops, loft-like ceilings adorned with warm lights and the aroma of baked macaroni cheese and desserts for high tea, Cookyn Inc has definitely created a whole new sensory experience for me. A huge hug to my favorite pals from my Royal Caribbean Cruise adventure, Mui Yee and Eunice, who came all the way down to join me on a weekend :D
Once again, thank you Channel U for the invite. It’s definitely a great bonding time with my lil’ sister ♥
