Pilbara News - - Lifestyle - Ali­cia Perera

■ out­h­east Asian res­i­dents melded In­done­sian, Sin­ga­porean and Malaysian cuisines into a “Sindo” ex­trav­a­ganza at a cook­ing class last week, with de­li­cious re­sults.

The Pil­bara Com­mu­nity Le­gal Ser­vice ran the class at the Frank But­ler Com­mu­nity Cen­tre on Mon­day, De­cem­ber 7.

PCLS com­mu­nity mi­grant worker Shirley Simp­son said it fol­lowed on from a se­ries of pop­u­lar Viet­namese cook­ing ses­sions held for Viet­nam’s In­de­pen­dence Day in Septem­ber.

“(The ladies) are all quite happy to come along,” she said.

“They enjoy cook­ing and they enjoy one an­other’s tra­di­tional dishes and be­ing with one an­other.”

Or­gan­iser Fateha Fahmi said she and Sari Som­mer put on the class as a way for peo­ple to socialise over their love for cook­ing.

“It’s a Malay cook­ing class, so Malay’s sim­i­lar for Sin­ga­pore­ans, In­done­sians and Malaysians,” she said.

“Sari and I wanted to com­bine both coun­tries’ dishes to­gether to make a com­plete “Sindo” dish. The tech­niques are all alike.”
