Ownself Make Chef menus begin typically with me going down a rabbithole, often interesting, sometimes bewildering, and always delicious. With the Ownself Make Chef Rabbithole series I will be doing more collaborative 4 hands dinners, as well as exploring various themes that intrigue me.
We will be doing the dinners in a more intimate setting, 158 per pax. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to chope your seats. Location = Bukit Merah/Central.
