An introductory class unlike any other, you will benefit from the key fundamentals of what it means to cook a meal. From simple washing of ingredients to precise prepping with several knife skills, fish filleting and making a simple sauce. From start to finish, each phase is meticulously thought out and given the same treatment as if we were training our own hotel kitchen staff.
From savoury to sweet, we invite you to experience the finest patisserie with Executive Chef Danny Ho, who, with his culinary background in French baking, will teach only the best desserts with flawless execution. Enjoy the tricky wonders of shortcut pastries, the fine arts of tempering chocolate and even the fiery extravagance of a flambé. This is one class you cannot miss.
Basics of Cooking
Here at Hotel ICON, we celebrate diversity in all its facets, especially in cuisine. We pride ourselves on not just the people that hail from other parts of Asia but the food that is inspired by their culture and how certain dishes have become an iconic signature at our venues. Whether it be the Pad Thai, Laksa, Burger or Dim Sum, our chefs will reveal the craft behind these mesmerizing dishes which you can learn to both make and impress everyone.
Join us for a hands-on mixology class and get to learn how to blend your own cocktails and mocktails with Assistant Bar Manager, Ms. Kama Ma, and enjoy the tasteful flavour profiles, all with a few razzle dazzle in bartending tricks and skills. Or, enjoy a seamless wine tasting experience with Mike, our Sommelier.
