The year of the Dog, has all but bounded by, tail wagging, and the year of the Pig is approaching at full trot. As we approach the silly season, String + Salt favourite Cindy Powell, will share a (yes slightly early) Chinese New Years inspired family feast.

Cindy was born in small town in Ipoh, Malaysia into a local Chinese Malaysian family. Well known for her fantastic hawker fare and and incredibly fragrant curries and regional Malay cuisine, in this class Cindy will draw on inspiration from the Chinese side of her heritage.

Cindy’s food story is closely interwoven with the story of her family.  The dishes she shares in her classes were cooked and taught to her by her beloved nanny and her mother who cooked professionally her entire life. 

In this hands-on class focused on generosity, prosperity, happiness and family , Cindy will prepare her favourite celebration foods including :

  • Yee Sang - Prosperity Toss

  • Sticky Hoisin Pork Ribs with Wombok and Apple Slaw

  • Hakka Abacus Beads (Chinese Taro Gnocchi)

  • Steamed Chicken in Lotus Leaf

  • Five Spice Taro Rice

  • Pear Sweet Soup
