Heartlands Book Club with Constance Singam
Constance Singam's love affair with food began with her mother's Keralan cooking. After decades of social activism, travel and kitchen mishaps, food is still able to transport her back to a time of street hawkers and wet markets. Join Constance as she talks about her memoir, Don’t Leave Home without Your Chilli Sauce, which traces her cross-cultural food journey.
 
Registration is required. Suitable for adults.
