February 22, 2017:  LUNCH JUST “BECAUS”: 10 Trainee Chefs from The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) whipped up a delectable Asian buffet lunch for 40 elderly staff members from Temasek Polytechnic, and Embassy staff joined the students and staff members for lunch and cross-cultural exchange.

The CIA Trainee Chefs are spending 3.5 months in Singapore learning to cook Asian cuisines. As part of their Asian Specialisation Programme’s CSR component, they have chosen to support Project BECAUS (Befriending Elderly Cleaning Aunties & Uncles of Singapore).
