Have you ever wondered what makes Singapore food ticks? Why is hawker food (street-food) so popular? What did people of Singapore eat in the early 20th century? How did laksa come about? Singaporefoodhistory.com is a resource for anyone interested in Singapore food history. It includes reference to useful books (including the first bibliography of Singapore's cookbooks), events, traditional recipes and links.
Recommended by menofclay: "A look at the history of our Singapore food; includes recipes from yester-years. Ai-Ling is also looking for clues to the origin of our humble curry puff (and its mysterious similarities to the Cornish pastry)"
