This past Sunday, my friends Leada and Regina invited me to a group cooking class here in Singapore: Cookyn with Mervyn. Mervyn taught us tips, tricks and recipes for churroz, prawn cerviche, squid ink paella, chorizo & potatoes and red sangria. SGD$90 for a full course meal with friends. Not bad!
Responsible for this week's shooting is tech enthusiast Mike Foong. He helmed the cameras this past Sunday and is now editing the upcoming Gastronommy vlog on Mervyn's kitchen. You may have seen his past work with JuicynDelicious, when I joined them on one of their episodes on chili crab! You can subscribe to Gastronommy's Youtube if you want to keep up to date on any future video uploads. It's about time we get that channel moving.

But don't wait on a Gastronommy vlog before you decide if you should try out Cookyn with Mervyn. Cookyn with Mervyn is very beginner friendly if you've never made anything beyond toast in your life. Even for the seasoned cooks, it's a cozy kitchen and a wonderful way to spend time with friends or even make new ones. Just to top it off, Mervyn's wife, Amanda has also got to be the nicest, most welcoming host I've met this year!
Check out Mervyn's website for the upcoming courses. He spans across many different cuisines. Upcoming are Italian and Japanese.
The follow up on this entry will include a video, recipes and more details about this past Sunday's session.
