Cook up a storm with The Kitchen Society's exclusive discount for The Straits Times subscribers. 

From July 1 this year to July 31 next year, ST subscribers will get a 10 per cent discount when they sign up for cooking classes with The Kitchen Society. Each subscriber is entitled to one discount per class. 

To get the discount, download the SPH Rewards app, look for the promotion under Dining and use the code when signing up for a class. 

The Kitchen Society offers intimate cooking classes for between 10 to 12 students. The small scale of the classes means participants can get up close to the chef, watch the cooking process as well as ask questions. 

Each session can last between three and four hours, and participants get to sample the dishes being taught in the class. They will also receive copies of the recipes. Each class typically teaches three dishes. 

This July, for example, food writer/consultant Christopher Tan, who has written two food columns for The Straits Times, will be teaching some heritage dishes.

In his July 7 class ($180 before discount), he will be teaching his family's recipes for lor bak koh (steamed radish cake), wu tau koh (steamed taro cake) and chwee kueh (steamed rice cakes).

Classes are conducted at a well-equipped kitchen located in a restored shophouse at Kim Yam road. Sign up for classes at their website. 

Upcoming classes include baking classes, workshops with Jeffrey Tan the co-founder of modern fishmonger Dish The Fish as well as cooking classes for both Asian and Western dishes.
