Wartime Food Workshop At An Edible Garden In Singapore

Practice Sustainability And Develop Resilience

2020 Apr 18

Immerse yourself into the rich history of our little island, while learning more about the past, present and future of food in Singapore at Sentosa and Edible Garden City’s first-ever collaboration: Wartime Food – Sustainability and Resilience. We are so lucky that we have ready access to a myriad of food choices, but ever wondered the struggle our ancestors were put through to have a good meal? Without the lessons that we learned and the spirit of survival from the war, we would not be as well-off as we are today.

Hidden in the midst of the rich history of Fort Siloso, is a hidden gem of an edible garden. Enjoy the process and take a walk through on a guided tour, and learn about how our grandparents and their parents ate during the war. Use your senses by touching, smelling and tasting spices and herbs, and find out how these ingredients were used to flavor the staple tapioca and sweet potato dishes. Finally, end the afternoon with a communal hands-on cooking session. Using freshly-harvested ingredients, whip up simple dishes based on wartime recipes.

This workshop is suitable for all ages 3 and up. As there will be a cooking segment, any child under the age of 12 should be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Please note that the workshop will be conducted in English.

Tickets: SG$47/pax, including all taxes and materials.
