Bread and kaya
Fong Yit’s three-generation old recipe for kaya (a thick coconut jam) gets a snazzy makeover with Kayamila’s three new flavours. While the preservatives and artificial colouring-free spread is commonly paired with warm toast, its saccharine flavour also serves as the perfect base to introduce the essence of vanilla. In fact, the comforting familiarity of vanilla works to the advantage of traditional kaya. Adventurous eaters can try the other two flavours of Sea-salt Caramel and Calamansi Citrus. The extra moreish note of sea-salt might appeal to younger palates while calamansi could offer the right amount of piquancy to cut through the cloying sweetness of the jam. S$3.50 per bottle. Available at NTUC Fairprice, NTUC Prime and Sheng Shiong from April onwards.
