Early this month, I was back in Singapore for two weeks. I was invited to give a talk, in line with the ideas from my first cookbook Wet Market to Table, to students and staff from the departments of environmental studies, urban studies and anthropology at the National University of Singapore. I chose to share about the forgotten plants in Asia - vegetables/ nuts/ fruit that have fallen out of favour with the broader Singaporean population, but especially with those in my generation and younger.
What a great thing to do! Sharing knowledge and food in such a positive way.
That nasi ulam looked more interesting than any fine dining dishes I've seen.
