You see, the history of hawker centres dates back to the 1970s as part of the government's plan to clean up the street and to provide a better dining establishment for both the vendors and customers alike. I'd say that these hawker centres played a vital role in Singapore's growth to what it is today.
Ultimate Original Recipe - "Celebrates the heritage of pioneer generation hawkers through stalls helmed by chefs from the second, third and fourth generations of famous hawkers."
Ultimate Pursuit of Happiness - "Celebrates the enterprising spirit of budding chefs and hawkers by featuring individuals who left their jobs in other sectors to pursue their passion for food in the hawker industry."
Ultimate Ingredients - "Features hawkers who have added special ingredients to conventional hawker fares to create dishes that are truly a league of its own!"
Proceeds of this event will go to TOUCH Community Services, a non-profit organization here in Singapore. Booklets worth S$50 can be purchase through their website as well as on-site too.
