All Spices_Web-01.jpg

When Mr Ling Meng Hua first decided to attend  a course at Allspice Institute, he was in the midst  of a mid-career change. His former company,  which dealt in advertising, was having financial  difficulties, and he knew that he would have to  find a new opportunity for himself. Having always  been a budding chef at home, Mr Ling decided  to jump at the chance to take up a course at  Allspice Institute, learning Japanese cooking. 

Now, as a stallholder at Jurongville Secondary  School selling Japanese food, Mr Ling says that  he has no regrets, as it was Allspice Institute  that taught him a few recipes that he now uses  at his stall, and gave him the courage to commit  to a career switch. Students and staff love  the Japanese Curry that he and his wife offer  on Tuesdays, served with healthy brown rice.

Before his introduction to Allspice Institute, Daniel Heng used to provide sushi for local shops. He had learnt just one recipe from a YouTube video, which he found easy to make at home. But there was so much more he wanted to learn, so his culinary passion led him to Allspice Institute, on the recommendation of an alumnus friend. While sushi-making was something he was used to, Japanese Cuisine opened a whole new world for him. The concepts, techniques and in-depth knowledge provided in the course gave him the tools to make his sushi-shop dream come true. After the course, he was geared up to open his own vegan Japanese sushi stall, by highlighting what he learnt at Allspice Institute about the importance of vegan ingredients and their nutritional benefits.

"I believe that a good trainer can make a huge difference in the learning process. I want to give thanks to Miss Anna for all her patience, encouragement and inspiration for us, " says Heng.

Heng now has a Vegan Sushi stall at the Raffles Place #B1-19, Change Alley Mall, S'pore 048622
