There’s a bookstore in Singapore that only sells cookbooks. Called 25Â°C (25 Degrees Celsius) it also features a cafe and an onsite test kitchen. Shoppers are encouraged to try food prepared from a recipe from one of the books before they make a purchase.
Experienced chefs regularly pick recipes from one of the cookbooks and then precisely follow the steps outlined. The tastiest dishes are then included book store’s cafe for one month.
