‘Secret Ingredients’ exhibition now coming to you in the heartlands
The exhibition will travel around Singapore from Mar 1 to Oct 31.
Ever wondered what goes into the making of iconic Singaporean dishes like hokkien mee and laksa? Well, the secret is now out.
The Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre (SCCC) is holding an exhibition called Secret Ingredients, which will tour through the heartlands and bring the history of these foods to you.
This comes after the success of the award-winning SINGAPO人 exhibition, where visitors learned more about Chinese culture and how it has intertwined with Singaporean culture.
The SCCC invites all visitors to become detectives for a day as they take investigate different scenarios featuring eight classic Singaporean foods: yong tau foo, kaya toast, char kway teow, laksa, hokkien mee, Hainanese curry rice, Hainanese chicken rice and bak kut teh.
Visitors can track down a vandal that will lead them to the secret of yong tau foo, interview witnesses about the origins of hokkien mee, and uncover the nuances of bak kut teh in a forensics lab.
