There you have it! Great news, foodies — this event has no entrance fee! Just pay for all the kueh you want to devour.
Slow Food Singapore has also arranged for three different heritage kueh experts to host paid classes and demos. Learn how kueh like Bolu Cocu, Kueh Rose, and Hainanese Larp are made.
While there will be so much kueh to choose from, here are a few you can look forward to eating.
Hainanese larp, a rare kueh, reportedly takes lot of time, effort and love to make. It is a delicious glutinous rice dumpling wrapped in coconut leaves.
There will be a Hainanese Larp Weaving Demonstration (S$40) hosted by Hainan Xiao Chi, a Toa Payoh Hainanese kueh business. It is scheduled for July 28, 2019 from 2pm to 3pm.
Bolu cocu is a Eurasian rendition of kueh bahulu. This fluffy coconut sponge cake, with spices of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, is a Christmas favourite and perfect with tea or coffee.
There will be a Bolu Cocu-making class (S$40) hosted by Chef Damian D’Silva on July 28, 2019 from 10am to 11am.
Another Eurasian kueh, pang suzie (sometimes spelled pang susi) is a sweet potato bun filled with minced meat. These delectable goodies will be sold by Mary’s Kafe at the event.
Kueh Bakar Pandan and Kentang
If you like custardy desserts, go for the kueh bakar, which are baked yummies made with coconut milk, eggs, flour, and sugar.
Deli Maslina offers them in two exciting flavours — potato and pandan. They will be available at the event for S$0.60 per piece.
Hainanese Yi Bua
Hainanese yi bua is a steamed kueh with a mix of lovely flavours, thanks to its ingredients of shredded coconut, gula melaka, sesame seeds, ginger, ground peanut and dried persimmons.
Each of these melt-in-your-mouth kueh will be selling at the event for S$1.50 each.
We don’t want to reveal all the amazing kueh that will be on offer this weekend; that was just a little teaser. If you can’t wait to sample these different kueh, get yourself down to the Kueh Appreciation Day 2019 event this weekend.
Bring your friends, your families, and most importantly, your appetites! It’s all about appreciation for food, heritage and culture, and with all the colourful kueh around, it’ll also be the perfect opportunity for some artsy, Instagram-worthy photos (if you can manage to snap pics before devouring the delicious kueh!). /TISG
