From traditional teochew to malay and nonya kueh, there are so many colours, textures and variations. The next time you think of kueh, you'll remember this time when you made kueh with your colleagues.

So what do you think? A kueh workshop is pretty cool-eh?

Curry: Make your favourite curries

Learn to make your favourite curries. Before you get curried away, choose your cuisine, and get paired with an expert who will teach you the basics.

Imagine the fragrant smell of buttery cookies enveloping the room as you bake away with your colleagues. You can even choose to include the theme of sustainability, with cookies made from up-cycled food byproducts. As Cookie Monster says, "Om Nom Nom Nom".

Cakes: Bake a beautiful cake

Is it cake? Yes. It's time to have your own rendition of The Great [insert Your Company] Bakeoff. Form teams, or go solo, and bake your cakes! There are options for fun studio sessions that inspire teamwork, or friendly cake competitions to see who has the prettiest and tastiest cake.
