Kenwood and the Love Wholesome team will be joined by the team from Share Food at the upcoming the 13th Kranji Countryside Farmers’ Market.

Home cook Anne Leong will be sharing three of her favourite recipes on the Kenwood stage; her Nonya Dry Mee Siam,  her Bee Hoon Ayam Soto, and her take on Singapore’s favourite breakfast, Kaya toast.

Indo-Style Bee Hoon Ayam Soto is a combination of rice vermicelli with slices of chicken served with a rich soup based made using peppercorn, lemongrass, galangal, candlenuts, cumin seeds and many other spices. This dish is popular in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore and is commonly known as ‘Mee Soto’ (yellow noodle is used in place of rice vermicelli). Topping it up with sambal chilli, fried shallot and coriander for an added taste to this dish.


Nonya Dry Mee Siam hosts a myriad of flavours (sweet, sour, spicy), the Nonya Dry Mee Siam is a popular and evergreen dish amongst the Peranakan community. Every strand of bee hoon is coated with a generous amount of flavourful chilli paste. It is sweet, sour with a gentle spiciness to it, a dish that suits well for the young and old in the family.


The traditional Kaya toast is our nation’s favourite breakfast! Soft white bread spread with a generous amount of creamy kaya together with a thick slab of butter. The kaya is made using eggs, sugar, coconut milk and pandan leaves. The green from the Kaya comes from pandan extract. Start your day with this delightful and tasty Kaya together with a warm cup of coffee!


The cooking demonstrations will be on Saturday, 29 September from 1:00 to 2:30 pm, and again from 3:15 to 4:45 pm.

On Sunday, 30 September the demonstrations will be from 11:30 am to 1 pm, and again from 1:45 pm to 3:15 pm.

Changing Lives Through Cooking at De’Divine Cafe

Customers at De’Divine Cafe sometimes laugh when their eyes catch the sign that reads, “Where Gods Come to Eat”. It might sound a little over the top, but this homely cafe is about more than just creating delicious flavours and textures. The sign is a reminder to customers that because of their patronage the establishment can provide culinary training to marginalised youth – mostly girls and young women – from the fringes of society. “We see cooking as a life skill …
