About this Event

We're back with the fifth instalment in our series of Food Fermentation Workshops will look to cover fermented food and beverages, as well as a bit of the history and culture associated with fermentation. Sign up early to receive a fermentation starter kit to kick-start your home fermentation journey! Should you be unable to secure a ticket, you're still welcome to join the waitlist and register at the door.

The trainer, DJ Tan (@glutamatedimp), is a chemistry graduate from University College London and is currently pursuing a postgraduate course in food science at the National University of Singapore. In his spare time, he shares his expertise in consulting for restaurants and chefs, as well as experiments with cooking and fermentation.

Our guest speaker, Toffa Abdul Wahed, is a freelance researcher. She has been assisting the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies with a project on Singapore's culinary history. She was a curatorial assistant with National Gallery Singapore for four years before deciding to pursue her interest in food history. She graduated with a BA (Honours) from National University of Singapore where she wrote her thesis on fermented shrimp paste in the food and foodways of Southeast Asia. In this talk, she will present how this food item, its production and consumption are represented in European travel literature.

Our event will be covered by photography and/or videography. By attending the event, you agree to be featured in our media platforms. Should you have any concerns, do raise this with the organisers on-site.

Department of Culture is a group founded by like-minded friends who want to share their experience in food and fermentation with other members of the community.
