To date, MasterClass is in partnership with more than 80 instructors and counting, with new fields being introduced.

Brunch is no longer just for the weekends when you can whip up this European meal anytime you want: fennel sausages, poached egg and peperonata, the latter being stewed vegetables comprising peppers, tomatoes and onions.

For extra points, take the time to carefully execute this local dessert, and one of Violet Oon’s specials, kueh kochee. All in the name of hosting the best dinner parties when this is all over.
