Gourmet Cooking with Chef Eric Low

It's been quite some time since I attended a course at the local community centres due to my busy schedule.  I receive frequent emails and texted messages from the administrators about courses but with the newly launched mobile portal OurCommunity.sg, it allows residents like me to access up-to-the-minute information about courses, activities and facilities, interest groups and food outlets via my smartphone. So convenient!

I was delighted there would be a Penang Assam Laksa and other nonya delights course taught by Chef Eric Low at Tampines West Community Centre on 30 June 2011. Although it was an hour from my house by bus, I signed up for the course.


There were 13 participants, 12 ladies and a guy. While most of them are residents living nearby, several like me travelled from other parts of the island to learn from Chef Eric. There was a domestic helper who is a regular of Chef Eric's cooking courses. She has learnt quite a number of dishes and is churning out yummy dishes for her Mam's weekly party. Cool! 

 Lots of questions to ask ...........

With so many like-minded people in a room, very soon we were bantering, sharing cooking tips and info on where to buy what, as if we have known one another for years. A few even gave me their contact numbers so we can have companionship when participating in future courses. Such a course certainly brings people together, bridging communities, fostering new friendships and creating stronger bonds.

Chef Eric has studied in the CIA,  it's the Culinary Institute of America lah, not the intelligence agency. I used to pester my son to join this school in California so I could live there for a while. haha... Eric is also from SHATEC and currently works with Nestle. His passion for food is contagious.

His dishes are simple yet tasty using ingredients that are easily available at the wet market. The delivery of the know-how is clear. Also, he offers many cooking tips and generous portions for food sampling.

What we learnt at this course :

 1) Penang Assam Laksa

 2) Inche Kabin (Penang Nonya Fried Chicken)


3)Durian Flavoured Fresh Tapioca Cake

Many of the regulars bought containers to bring the food samplings back. I finished every bit of mine. :P

Can't wait to cook the newly learnt dishes for my hungry guys at home!

Steven Gerarrd

Steven George Gerrard born 30 May 1980, is an English professional association football player who plays for and captains English Premier League club Liverpool and the England national team. He has played much of his career in a centre midfielder role; however, since the arrival of Fernando Torres at Liverpool in 2007, he has been used mainly as a second striker for his club team and as a winger for England since 2006. Gerrard is best known for his long shots and also has scored in numerous cup finals including the 2005 UEFA Champions League Final and the 2006 FA Cup Final. He is considered to be one of the best players in the world by Zidane.

Gerrard, who has spent his entire career at Anfield, made his début in 1998 and cemented his place in the first team in the 2000–01 season, succeeding Sami Hyypiä as Liverpool team captain in 2003. His honours include two FA Cup wins, two League Cup wins, a UEFA Cup win, and a UEFA Champions League win in 2005. In 2005, Gerrard came third in the voting for Ballon d'Or, given to the top player in Europe.
