Tempeh Culinary Experience at Bollywood Veggies

Come 6 October, we’ll be collaborating with Bollywood Veggies for a tempeh workshop, led by culinary presenter Mary Ho.

This 3.5 hour session will include a tempeh-making lesson and a collaborative cooking demonstration to make two dishes: Opor Tempeh, a Central Javanese coconut-based curry dish and stir-fried tempeh with Thai basil and lemongrass.

Participants will get to bring home, their own handmade tempeh, a pack of tempeh starter and a copy of Pauline Menezes’ Tempted by Tempeh, which retails for SGD 28.00.
