What better way to discover Singapore than through the eyes of people who are tapped into the pulse of the local lifestyle scene? This month we speak to Amy Greenburg, the Wine and Dine Editor at Expat Living magazine, about the best nightlife watering holes in The Little Red Dot.
The Chinese cooking wok is an artistic instrument. You heat it up, put ingredients, bit by bit, swirl it around, toss the contents and the result is a dish with a distinct flavour referred to as wok hei (or "breath of the wok").
Curious to uncover more about how Le Creuset is used in Asian cooking, NOSHtrekker reached out to Cheryl Yuen, Commercial Manager at Le Creuset in Singapore, to ask her about how she cooks at home and which kitchen hardware she finds indispensable.
If you’ve never tried to bake a friand, or are looking to amp up your afternoon tea service with some dainty treats, here are some of delicious friand recipes selected by our food researcher Christel Gomes.
Wonderful unique experience to be a tourist and a local at the same time. Our hosts Rose and Chris for claypot relishes opened up their wonderful home full of treasures, told us stories, played music and brought out a magnificent feast. There was a perfect balance of our own chit chat and our host's stories. Definitely a memory I will treasure.
An unforgettable dinner that brought us closer to nature and appealed to all senses. Apart from the delicious food and drinks, the artistic theme just made it extra special. Thank you #noshtrekker for an incredible experience.
Thank you for such a wonderful experience. Big call out to Nita and gang at GastroGeography of Singapore for not just great food and drinks but also for the journey you took us on to discover what I have forgotten to see, feel and can feed us with all that is around me...it was just a magical nite for me and my friends. Loved every minute...posting pics on my FB!
A really nice evening with Medicine Woman of Asia :) The food was delicious and we felt so healthy whilst and after eating it! We can happily say that we spent great few hours with Ajuntha. She told us so many interesting stories from her life and from Singapore history, and we also chatted on other subjects. Noshtrekker and Ajuntha also fulfilled my wish to allow my husband to blow bday candles to celebrate his day!
Rochelle, jam maker extraordinaire, first showed us the intricacies of how her delicious jams are made. Each step of the way is done with much care and love, resulting in jams that are yummy and unique. She uses only ingredients which she can find locally, living up to her motto of 'Gouts Nomades' which thrives to be responsible and sustainable. Her wonderful jams includes tropical fruits like guava, pineapple, jackfruit, spiced up with cinnamon and peppers. Rochelle's passion in jam making was ignited when she was a child watching her grandma making plum jams with fruits from their very own orchard in South West of France.
After the jam making, we sat down to a most delicious spread of brunch which included cheeses, breads baked by Rochelle and of course jams!
What a wonderful start to a day!
Thank you Rochelle and Nosh Trekker for this very cosy and intimate experience!
Singapore Culinary Seduction....
Have been in Singapore for a week now and have veered off the tourist track and bumped into Nosh Trekker. Anyone visiting this green island of abundance must book an experience with Nosh Trekker.
Mobile Mamakan, food and drink foraging treasures - the Blue Pea Vodka will knock your socks off! The Holistic Healer; vegan splendour, healing and stories from the energetic and always dancing Mary Ho and today I experienced a traditional Chinese Shop House in historic Joo Chait with an exotic French Jam Therapist. Blown away by each experience and can't wait for tomorrow's cooking class Simply Teo Cheow making dumplings for the winter solstice.
Just wanted to share about this amazing vegetarian lunch experience (organised by 'Noshtrekker') I had today which was held in an incredible Singaporean lady's home today in Joo Chiat (with a lovely edible garden & mellow cats).
This is really something I would recommend going with your little ones and even visiting family (especially if they are from out of town) as it offers an authentic glimpse into Sg's rich & diverse cultures. This tour is called 'Medicine Woman' if anyone is keen to know.
I went with some friends and it was such an eye-opening experience with the Singaporean-born host (Ajuntha), who has Eurasian+Chinese+Malay+Pakistani heritage, sharing about the healing properties of plants and the origins of these plants commonly found in Sg and the region. (Did you know you can blend and eat papaya seeds? They help clear your bowels & deworm as well!)
P.s. I am not in any way affliated but just wanted to share about this wonderfully enlightening and delicious culinary & educational experience with you all. Never felt so detoxed and impressed with vegetarian food in my life! AND I am a meat-lover!
We had a great experience learning how was life during the Japanese Occupation, the fires in the 1960s and at the same time we delighted ourselves with Peranakan homemade food!!!!! Thanks NOSHTREKKER for this opportunity! Thanks Mr Chan and daughter!!!!!!
