Gourmet Holiday Cooking with Chef Eric Low At FairPrice Finest Amara

Nothing puts you in the mood for Christmas better than a taste, literally, of what is to come. On 30 Nov 2013 afternoon, shoppers at FairPrice Finest @ Amara were treated to an exclusive cooking demonstration, by Chef Eric Low who has over 25 years of culinary experience in both local and international kitchens.

As part of our Christmas festivities, the affable chef shared two new appetising recipes with shoppers - Fresh Crepes with Honey-Baked Ham and Emmental Cheese Sandwich with Lingonberry Jam and Garlic Butter Prawns on Pesto Cream Cheese and Crackers. Shoppers were also invited to taste the dishes for themselves, springing beams of delight all around. For some, they are fresh ideas, perfect for serving at a traditional Christmas feast. For others, this was the first taste of a perfect holiday season.
