As we find ourselves all stuck at home, beginner cooks and seasoned foodies have found enjoyment in preparing home-cooked meals, following recipes online or turning to video tutorials for guidance.

Singapore is serving up a Live Masterclass from Philippines’ own international chef and restaurateur Margarita Forés together with chef Ming Tan of Singapore.

The cooking masterclass titled 2Fast, 2Delicious - Hokks and Clay will stream on August 22 at 7:00 p.m. through this link. The masterclass is part of this year’s Singapore Food Festival and will feature two classic Singaporean dishes—Hokkien Mee and Claypot Rice, to be prepared by Fores and Tan in a virtual session that will allow audiences to not only rediscover these delicious gastronomic gems, but to also learn how they can level up their home dining experience.

Forés and Tan will share their own personal gastronomy secrets in creating these exquisite-tasting dishes. Hokkien mee, a noodle dish popular in Singapore which is very similar to the Philippines’ Pancit Malabon, has become a favorite thanks to its use of fragrant stock with prawns, meat, clams, and dried fish. 


Claypot Rice, a casserole cooked directly over live coals, is also a Singaporean trademark famous for its crispiness.

“Singapore Tourism Board’s online masterclasses shine the spotlight on the talents and dishes of Singapore’s dining scene. We invite foodies around the world to rediscover Singaporean cuisine with us through this fun and entertaining format,” said Ruby Liu, Singapore Tourism Board’s director for the Philippines. 

“The 2Fast, 2Delicious - Hokks and Clay class is specially curated for Filipino foodies and we hope that the session will allow Filipino foodies to enjoy Singaporean cuisine from the comfort and safety of their own homes.”

This Masterclass is part of a series of online activities held by the Singapore Tourism Board. It is part of the annual Singapore Food Festival from 21-30 August. 

Among the various masterclasses are Holy Crab: Supper Treats which will stream on August 21  at 9:30 p.m.. It showcases curated dishes with bold, cheeky flavors created by chef Elton Seah.
