Who are we?
Spoonful is the brainchild of Alchemist Pte Ltd - a Singapore based Japanese affiliated marketing company specialising in culinary events. Spoonful itself is a unique melting pot where Cooking Workshops, Food & Beverage events and the latest happenings of the gastronomical world meets. At Spoonful, we have been teaching, establishing and spreading the love for food & ingredients ever since its establishment in August 2014. One can learn about the gastronomy and attend events where the gurus of the culinary world gather or even reference recipes from popular chefs and food specialists alike!
The Spoonful brand was built upon our philosophy of "Food For Thought With a Smile ". Through Food & Cooking events and F&B activities, we want to increase the awareness and attention paid to Food & Ingredients by educating the public on the origins of food and how precious our source of food is; especially in communities where food is aplenty.
Just like how all life begins, we’d like our culinary journey to start with planting and sowing seeds, nurturing them until harvest where food is ultimately served on your plate. Let's change the world starting from our gardens and farms, to our kitchens and through cooking with us. Let’s promote this awareness, one spoonful at a time.
