A hands-on class culminating in dinner served with wine and beer.

It’s Dungeness Crab season and we’re going to celebrate it, Singapore style! Let’s save a ticket to Asia, and travel gastronomically over our tables at 18 Reasons with Linda as your guide. Roll up your sleeves because you’re going to make these crabs smothered in chili, ginger, garlic and herbs and a few sides to round out the meal with a feast of finger-licking fried shrimp and other feastworthy sides, just like they do it at those seafront restaurants in Singapore.
