新加坡的烹饪课

Many people say that to really understand a country, you have to understand its cuisine. In Singapore, there’s no shortage of things to do if you like food – you’ll find some of the world’s best dishes here! But what about going deeper and venturing into the kitchen to understand how the food’s prepared, the ingredients that go into it, and the culture of eating and cooking? Taking a cooking class may be one of the most interesting things you can do in Singapore.

For a taste of Singaporean nostalgia, take a class specialising in kampung cooking. Kampung is the Malay word for ‘village’, which was the centre of life in the Malayan peninsula before high-density urbanisation replaced most villages. Many older Singaporeans once lived in kampungs.

Cookery Magic's Pulai Ubin Kampong Cooking Escapade is a class held in a century-old family home in a surviving kampung on the island of Pulau Ubin, which you'll reach with a short ferry ride from a jetty in Changi. Once on the island, you'll collect wild herbs to use in preparing traditional kampung dishes including nasi kerabu (herbed rice with fried chicken and condiments).

If you prefer to stay on the mainland, Cookery Magic also has simple home cooking classes for local and regional cuisine such as Hainanese chicken rice, chili crab, and roti prata. On most days of the week, you can add a shopping trip to a local wet market where you’ll be amazed at the mélange of sights, sounds and smells that you won’t find anywhere else in the world.

A similar experience is offered by Palate Sensations cooking school. Its tourist cooking class was designed especially for visitors to Singapore. You'll shop for fresh ingredients at a local market, cook up a menu of Singaporean favourites in a professional kitchen, and afterwards enjoy eating your culinary creations.

And if you want to learn as many recipes as you can in a short amount of time, check out the Singaporean cooking classes at Coriander Leaf. The chef will demonstrate making six or seven local dishes, such as Hainanese chicken rice, lamb satay, and bee hoon (Singapore-style vermicelli noodles) – so you'll walk away practically an expert!

The Singaporean cooking culture is traditionally communal, and cooking a meal is as much of a social experience as eating it. Recipes and secrets are passed down from generation to generation, and many Singaporeans have strong opinions on the best ways to make local dishes.

许多人都说,要想真正了解一个国家,就必须了解其饮食。新加坡聚集各国文化,吃货们在新加坡一定能将行程安排得满满当当,也会在这里发现一些世界级的美食!在大快朵颐的同时,你是否常感叹一声“好想学了回家做着吃啊”?在新加坡还真有这机会。

想走进厨房了解准备食材、添加配料的过程乃至其饮食烹饪文化?那不妨去上一堂体验烹饪课吧,说不定这会成为你在新加坡做过的最与众不同的事。

喜欢新加坡古早味的,可以去参加一些与kampung烹饪相关的专门课程。Kampung在马来语中表示“村落”,在被高密度聚居的城市化替代前,村落一直是马来半岛的生活中心。许多新加坡老人一生住在村落中,十分乐意与他人分享关于过去生活的点滴故事。你也可以通过参加乌敏岛村落烹饪冒险等活动来全程体验旧时代的新加坡。该烹饪课的举办地点位于乌敏岛,在樟宜某个码头坐几分钟的渡船就能抵达。乌敏岛本身也是一段历史,有一个小部落静静坐落于岛上,游客可以参观年代久远的家族古屋,在周围采集野花野草,参加传统马来烹饪课。

组织乌敏岛大冒险、魔法厨房的同一家机构也为那些想要待在狮城本岛的人提供了简单的家常烹饪课。所涉及的菜肴都很本土:海南鸡饭、咖喱鱼、印度飞饼等新加坡本地菜。游客可以随时到当地湿巴刹菜市场购物,那里会以最具特色的方式同时震撼你的视觉、听觉和嗅觉。“味觉震撼”也能提供类似的体验,这种活动将菜市场购物和室内烹饪课结合起来,参与者可以学习如何烹饪出别具特色的新加坡菜,之后尽情享用。如果你想在短时间内学会尽量多的菜谱,可以试试“芫荽叶”,这里的厨师会快速展示几种当地菜肴做法,让你产生各种在家动手烹饪的点子!

新加坡烹饪文化传统上为集体文化,煮饭和吃饭均为一种社交。食谱代代相传,许多新加坡人对鸡饭、娘惹咖喱、馄饨或者叻沙的正宗食谱都“顽固”地各持己见。在新加坡上一堂烹饪课可以为你带来美好的回忆,让人忍不住一直拿起相机使劲拍照,也能收获吃货们最爱的纪念品:几份可以带回家以供下次聚餐一展厨艺的美味食谱!
