Tastes of Asia
Step back in time
Peranakans are locally born immigrant Chinese. They are an interesting group of people in the sense that they do not conform to the standard Chinese culture. From religion to architecture to food, Peranakans are an examplary mish mash of Chinese, Malay and European cultures. Their food is considered the first fusion cuisine. Peranakans keep not only money but recipes in their safes at home! Food Recipes are the pride of every Peranakan. Learn the secrets to Nonya's kitchen with Chef Lionel Chee, one of Singapore's earliest Hokkien families. Chef Lionel is the former Chef of Casa Bom Vento Restaurant which ran for 20 years, having served local dignitaries, including the past four Singapore presidents, the Prime Minister, ministers and foreign dignitaries.
