From cultivating a sourdough starter to learning French wining and dining terms, take a gander at what we have in store below.

Being quarantined at home can feel demoralising and restrictive, but that’s not to say we can’t do something about it. As American actress Debbie Allen once said, “But out of limitations comes creativity.”

With that in mind, we at FirstClasse would like to encourage you to pick up a new skill or learn something different with our second #FirstClasseLive lineup, happening next week live on our Instagram. Take a gander at what we have in store below.

Monday, 4pm: Cultivating a Sourdough Starter with Provisions KL

You may or may not have seen photos of sourdough bread flooding your Instagram feed over the past few weeks. Well, we spoke to the pros to find out exactly how it should be done. Get your flour, yeast and cooking supplies ready on Monday as Lim Heng Kit, co-founder and chef of Provisions Cafe will be showing you how to cultivate your very own sourdough starter.

Tuesday, 4pm: Homeplanting with Pulpy Garden

We know that decorating the home with adorable succulents and planters isn’t as easy as it looks. That’s why we’re getting a little help from Josephine Ong, founder of Pulpy Garden, on keeping our house plants alive and well. You can also ask away if you’re struggling with your plant babies, or if you need some ideas to spruce up your interiors with greenery. Happy greens, happy home!

Wednesday, 9pm: Pairing Cigar and Liquor with Eiling Lim

For those unacquainted, Eiling Lim is the first independent Malaysian whisky bottler who also makes her own brand of gin. What not many people may know, however, is that the Belgian-based connoisseur collects rare bottles and cigars that may put male counterparts to shame. Discover her collection and how to pair cigar and liquor in her personal home masterclass on Wednesday evening – just in time for your happy hour fix!

Thursday, 9pm: Wining and Dining like a True French with Pierre Boyer

Tune in with a special mystery guest on Thursday evening for a brief French 101 on common French foodie terms, so you can nail it at your next fine dining date.
