On Season with Spice, we have always advocated an appreciation for cuisines all over the world, by featuring people who introduce their culture; their home; through their kitchen, by sharing colorful recipes…with spice.

That is why we were troubled when we read a story about a family that had immigrated to Singapore and complained to the authorities how repulsed they were by the smell of curry from their neighbor’s house. Eventually, an official mediator had to step in and it was agreed that the Singaporean-Indian family would only be allowed to cook curry when the foreign family was not at home.

Curry is one of the traditional dishes of multicultural Singapore. Whether Chinese or Indian, Nyonya or Malay, curry can be found in kitchens throughout the island. It is baffling that someone who just moved to the country would feel they have the right to prevent a local from cooking traditional food.

But while we are disappointed by this incident, we are also heartened after over 50,000 Singaporeans and other supporters, have pledged to ‘Cook and Share a Pot of Curry!’ on Sunday, August 21. We hope this event spreads all over the globe as a day to cook a traditional dish from your homeland, and share it with a neighbor from another culture. An event to encourage home cooking, tradition, and cross-cultural connections.
