It’s fun and mum is here, too

NINE-YEAR-OLD Tiffany Thong and her mother had a fabulous time together when they attended a three-day creative cooking class recently.  

Even Tiffany's little brother, two-year-old Edward, was one of the “participants” in the special cooking session organised by Kepong Evangelical Free Church in KIP Park to teach schoolchildren to cook.  

“I learnt to make Sushi and Princess Bread Pudding,” said an excited Tiffany, a pupil of Sekolah Kebangsaan (Cina) Lick Hung in SS19, Subang Jaya. “I haven’t yet, but I hope to cook a meal for Mum and Dad.”

Her mother, Jenny Lim, said despite being a housewife, she had learnt a lot from the cooking sessions. “I have picked up some creative cooking skills,” she said. “Cooking can be fun when you put in some creativity.”  

The cooking sessions were organised to help mothers bond with their children, while imparting some useful survival skills to the youngsters to enable them to fend for themselves when they are on their own at college.  

Event coordinator Karen Lim said several of the recipes came from a diehard cook - a former interior designer, who combined her creativity with cooking.  

“Yoke Mei came up with interesting recipes like Princess Bread Pudding, which is bread baked with milk, and sprinkled with raisins and banana pastry,” she said. “The children simply loved it!”

Lim said that the cooking sessions were a good form of relaxation for schoolchildren who found it taxing mentally to cope with tuition classes and other extra-curricular activities. 

“Cooking can be relaxing,” she added. “In the process, we hope the mothers who came with their children had the opportunity to build their relationships with them. Someday, when the teenagers leave home to further their studies, they will find these lessons useful/”  

Contrary to popular belief, there is still much interest among young people in learning to cook.  

“We are considering organising another session during the next school holidays,” she said. “This is a good way for us to serve our community and help build the bond between mother and child.”
