WHAT WE WILL DO

Start your morning at a Malaysian home just 20 minutes away from Kuala Lumpur city centre. I will welcome you with a glass of flower tea and delicious appetiser from the garden. Before we cook, we will explore my organic edible garden with over 50 herbs, spices, and flowers used in everyday Malaysian cooking.

We will see, touch, smell, and taste a variety of local plants like blue flower, curry leaves, and turmeric. We may even harvest curry leaves that we will use in our cooking!

In the kitchen where my family cooks, we will learn how to make wantan mee, char siew pork and three other popular Malaysian recipes. I will introduce you to essential produce for our cooking such as ikan bilis (anchovies) and limau kasturi (calamansi lime)

With my expert guidance, we roll Lor Bak with thin beancurd sheets made from soya milk and knead sweet potato-coconut dough for our dessert. You will learn tips and tricks on authentic Malaysian cooking.

Finally, it's time to enjoy a delicious meal we made together and chit-chat about Malaysian food, culture, and lifestyle. You will leave with a full stomach, knowledge of Malaysia's food and plants, cooking skills, and a recipe booklet so that you can cook Malaysian food for your family and friends back home!
