Relish.Sg presents Afternoon Delights Series
When Felix meets Sharda
High Tea + Dramatic Readings = Lots of Laughs
Author Felix Cheong and Actress Sharda Harrison
Ham and Spice it up as they bring to life insightful bite size observations of Singapore taken from Felix Cheong’s trilogy of stories from “Singapore Siu Dai Part 1-111”. Chef Chris Choo creates dishes inspired by some of these stories, for example, what cuisine do you get when you combine Hakka and Cantonese influences in cooking? Come enjoy “Hakkanese” dishes, have a go at our wok and learn about the skills needed to make food that can only be described as “Beautiful lah”. Join us for an afternoon of delights with special guest appearance by Dr. Kirpal Singh (who has a surprise up his sleeve). We promise you will have a good time!
