For the month of September, we’re partnering with DBS on the DBS “Live Your Dream” initiative to introduce you 3 home-grown chefs!
First up, meet Chef William Bai from Buona Terra, who brings us his homemade recipe of Tagliolini Al Pioppini (AKA Tagliolini with Mixed Mushrooms Saffron and Parmesan Cream) It’s a lovely dish to cook for your loved ones on a weekend date or for an atas family feast in the comfort of home. The recipe is good for up to 5 people, and is a fun way to learn how to make your own pasta. If you don’t have your own pasta maker, you can buy them off the shelf and do the sauce too, which makes it so easy to prepare. Remember to stir and toss the pasta until the sauce thickens!
“To cook with my heart and to learn in earnest.” This dedication that Chef William has towards cooking and the love of food is an admirable one. Watch the full video and hear from Chef William how being an aspiring chef is like in Singapore!
