Cooking class promotes interactions with disabled people
Accessible Chef Home
An aroma of spices wafts through the kitchen as Ms Kagda Sakina Abbasbhai teaches a class of 15 participants how to cook cheesy chilli chicken. The year-old is adept in the kitchen, cheerfully and skilfully slicing up the ingredients as she instructs the class, uninhibited by her wheelchair. Organised by the National Council of Social Service in partnership with OUE Social Kitchen, it was a cooking and learning experience aimed at facilitating interactions with people with disabilities. The two-hour session was part of the See The True Me campaign - now in its third year - which promotes an inclusive society. She added that she hopes the class will help to debunk the myth that persons with disabilities are unable to cook. Ms Sakina, who has been using a wheelchair since the s after she was stricken with polio, co-led the session with OUE Social Kitchen's in-house chef Elsie Loh. Chef Loh showed the class how to put together a refreshing pasta salad, before Ms Sakina took over to teach the participants how to make a spicy dish of cheesy chilli chicken and a sweet rose lassi drink.
