Traditional Hainanese-Style Western Cakes Making


My Mother-in-law used to say that with the ageing of older chefs, many traditional and delicious bakeries will be extinct soon. I would not deny this. My mother in law is an excellent cook and baker. She inherited her culinary skills from her grandparents who had once worked in the kitchen of the colonial expats family. Over the years, they had mastered the English teatime delights. Imparting these valuable skills to their younger generations, many of the latter became owners of traditional kopi-tiam selling rich butter cakes, char siew buns, old-style vanilla buttercream cake, puffs, tarts etc on top of the Hainanese cuisine.

Rekindle fond memories of these traditional bakeries in this workshop.
