Makansutra, better known for its street food guide, is going deeper into developing the hawker scene here.

In the last quarter of this year, its founder K.F. Seetoh will roll out the first phase of its new Street Food Pro 360 course to train the next generation of hawker entrepreneurs.

The 30-hour programme will give participants an overview of street food business operations, skills training and an understanding of the culture of Singapore's food heritage.

Participants will learn from some of Singapore's best chefs, as Mr Seetoh has roped in the owners of local brand names to conduct cooking classes and demonstrations.

Background story

“The Koreans may have their K-pop, but we can be known for our hip hawker culture, especially since we already have the ingredients to do so.”
