Happy birthday Grandma! My grandmother turned 82 earlier this year in July and to celebrate I brought the family out to have a fine dining experience at the much famed Corner House. Some years ago as part of my apprenticeship for my Hospitality Culinary Diploma I was a trainee at a fine dining place at the very internationally known Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. The executive chef at the outlet I was at is now the chef and owner of Corner House which is located in the Botanical Gardens. It was only in recent months that Michelin Stars were given out in Singapore and Corner House was awarded one star!
I'd actually been wanting to give Corner House a try for the last two years since it opened in 2014 but as time passed and I was so busy with life things that I didn't ever make it a reservation but knowing my grandmother's birthday was coming up I proposed to my family and we made it a date!

Out of all the food and drink we had, I unfortunately forgot to take a shot of something really important....the free flow of house made bread rolls! They were sooooo good and with the salt and butter my brother and father really kept the bread 'rolling' in as they supplemented the meal with it all the way until before dessert!
When was the last time you had a fine dining experience?
Would you considering having one for an occasion?
