ToTT is 4 Years Old!

ToTT, or Tools of the Trade, will be celebrating her 4th birthday this month. How quickly time flies! For her birthday last year, they had a wonderful sale, which I bought some more new kitchen toys. There was also the taste challenge contest, which gave out a super huge prize for the winner.

So how is ToTT celebrating her 4th birthday?

1) ToTT Taste Challenge 2014!

ToTT 4th Birthday

The very popular ToTT Taste Challenge is back.  You can win up to $3000 in prizes by identifying up to 30 ingredients blindfolded. You might think it’s easy, but trying to name familiar food within 30 seconds blindfolded, your senses might fail on you.  You can read about what happened last year here.

Do you want to try it out?  Go register or find out more at:
Hurry as registration ends 3 October and the taste test is on 4 October 2014.

2) ToTT’s new Cookbook: “365 Days of Fun – Recipes for Any Occasion” with Demo Session.
If you like cooking and always wanted the recipes from some of Singapore’s top chefs, ToTT has compiled some of their recipes into a book called “365 Days of Fun – Recipes for Any Occasion”. Two chefs that have contributed recipes are also having demonstration cooking classes as well.

Tickets for the demo classes are priced at $58 and half of the proceeds will go to Children’s Aid Society and Help Family Services.

I recently had the opportunity to attend the demo class preview and I posted them on Instagram. You probably have seen some of it. We had the honour to see Chef Ian Hioe and Chef Shen Tan demo for us their recipes. They only showed us half of what they will be doing on the real demo class. You can click on the links below to see more details about the class.


Chef Ian Hioe was teaching us how to make burgers and how to make them so that it is moist and consistently moist. You want to know how? Register for the class!


These were the burgers we got to try and yes, they were good. He also showed us how to make blue potato chips from scratch and the secrets to it as well.
