Peranakan Buffet and Shermay’s Cooking School Pop-Up at the One Farrer Hotel & Spa

The One Farrer Hotel & Spa is one of those little gems in Singapore that not everyone knows about. When the hotel opened last year, I was invited to check out the Skyline Studio in the exclusive Skyline Hotel Wing and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of product (as well as the five meal inclusions!). The One Farrer Hotel & Spa is hosting Shermay Lee's Cooking School Pop-up to present a series of cooking classes and a retail section at the beautiful Origins of Food Studio.
