Looking for a cooking class in Singapore to up your culinary game? Or perhaps you think you’ve got what it takes to be a private chef? Whatever the reason, learning the finer points of cooking is a practical skill that’s sure to impress, and the At-Sunrice GlobalChef Academy offers you the chance to learn to cook from experienced chefs from Singapore and across the globe.
If you’d prefer to learn a single recipe, the culinary institute also offers transferable bundles with a series of single-session cooking classes. With Christmas coming up, there’s no better time to add a couple of new recipes to your holiday cooking repertoire.
Become a private chef in Singapore
If you enjoy cooking to impress your friends and family, the Private Chef with Buddy course might be just what you need to take things to the next level. The eight-class course will run on consecutive Sundays from 31 October to 19 December from 2pm to 8pm. If you’re looking for a way to spend time with your kids, you can also join the course as a pair.
Each cooking class is structured around a practical skill that will be utilised for a specific recipe. You’ll also learn to cook a broad range of cuisines including Chinese, Indian, Thai and Singaporean. Of course, to become a private chef in Singapore, you’ll need to learn how to do more than cook! That’s why you’ll also learn about knife usage, sanitation and other important kitchen skills. For a full rundown on what you’ll learn in the course, click here.
Join a cooking class with your helper
Want to hone your kitchen skills with your helper? The Private Chef with Helper course is a paired program that will equip you and your helper with all the skills you need to put together an impressive dinner party, or simply add to your home cooking repertoire. Like the Private Chef course, the programme will equip both of you to cook Singaporean, Chinese and Thai meals. You’ll also learn basic French desserts. The course includes access to recipes and videos online as well as classes at the school itself. The eight-course is held on alternate Saturdays and costs $1,600 for each pair.
Learn to cook Christmas classics with single-session classes
If blocking out time for eight classes might be difficult for you, At-Sunrice also offers a variety of single-session cooking classes. Each class can be completed in just three to four hours. A bundle of any eight classes is available at $1,000 and is fully transferable. In other words, you can split the bundle with your family and join a specific cooking class as a group. Each bundle is valid for six months.
With the holiday season coming up, the culinary school has several Christmas specials available. For a truly impressive Christmas centerpiece, join the beef Wellington class and learn to master this elegant English classic. Want to sate your sweet tooth instead? The gingerbread cookies and Christmas cupcakes class is an easy introduction to baking that’s ideal for parents and children alike. If you want to join a specific cooking class, a full list is available here.
What to expect at a cooking class in the EasyChef Lab
At-Sunrice’s courses take place in the EasyChef Lab, a recreational culinary school aimed at home cooks and gourmands alike. In addition to learning the practical aspects of cooking, the classes will include lessons on horticulture, nutrition, artful plating, culinary cultures and the science behind cooking.
Another reason why At-Sunrice is a great choice for a cooking class in Singapore is that you’ll have access to high-quality professional equipment. Poggenpohl kitchen systems and luxury Miele appliances are arranged around a long kitchen island so you can collaborate closely with your instructors. At-Sunrice also has a spice garden with over 40 herbs and spices. In addition, you can take advantage of the school’s e-learning platform with demonstrations and digital guides.
Last but not least, At-Sunrice offers cooking classes during the school holidays that are ideal for parents and children alike.
