Singapore Pavilion inspires visitors to cook Michelin chef’s recipes with meal kit launch at Expo 2020 Dubai

The Singapore Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai has teamed up with Singapore Tourism Board (STB) to give visitors a taste of its delicious food through recipe kits, created in collaboration with Michelin-awarded Singaporean chef, Haikal Johari. Developed by UAE brand Naksha, the meal kits enable anyone to easily cook up classic Singaporean dishes at home.

Naksha’s Singapore Collection features a choice of three classic recipes to make and enjoy at home, devised by Johari, executive head chef at Michelin-starred restaurant Alma in Singapore.

During the launch event, ‘Stories of Taste and Passion’, at the Singapore Pavilion, visitors were treated to a taste of the three dishes – Lemak Cili Padi (creamy coconut curry with lime leaf and turmeric, teamed with rice noodles); Ngoh Hiang (crispy baked summer rolls with five-spice and paprika), and Asam Pedas (spiced tomato stew with tamarind and lemongrass, accompanied by jasmine rice).

Haikal said: “The three recipes included in this collection are all classics, much-loved in Singapore, but they are not always well-known in the wider world. We want to change that. The recipes taste delicious, which is most important, but they also offer an immersive Singapore cooking experience which is fuss-free, authentic and results in an impressive meal”.

The Singapore Collection recipe kits are available to buy at Spinneys and Waitrose stores across the UAE.
