Memories From The Rafflesian Table

Food is integral to our lives. It perpetuates our heritage and connects people. We share food whenever we come together, whether at a party for six or a feast for sixty. What more delectable way to honour our alma mater than with a beautifully crafted celebratory cookbook? Entitled “Consuming Passion: Memories From The Rafflesian Table”, this book is a stylish and heart-warming legacy of gastronomic treasures. Distinguished alumni, current and past teachers and principals have generously shared their delicious family heirloom recipes.

Consuming Passion was officially launched on 9 March 2013 at a Gala Tea in the school hall. All proceeds from the sale of Consuming Passion will go towards supporting the development of performing arts in RGS. The book is available for purchase at the General Office, Raffles Girls’ School (Secondary) on Monday to Saturday, during office hours. The retail price is S$30 (inclusive of GST) per copy, while stocks last. Payment by credit/debit card is available. Please email may.kan@rgs.edu.sg for further details.

The book will make a beautiful and thoughtful gift for all occasions – birthdays, weddings, wonderful corporate gift for clients or for someone going abroad for further studies.
