We'll meet at my family home, just 20 minutes train or taxi ride away from Kuala Lumpur city centre.
Begin with a glass of tea and appetiser before we explore my edible garden with over 50 herbs, spices, and flowers used in everyday cooking. We will see, touch, smell, and taste a variety of local plants like curry leaves and turmeric.
Then, we'll proceed to the kitchen to make Malaysia's National Dish:
1. Nasi Lemak (Coconut rice with spicy sambal)
2. Ayam Goreng Berempah (Spiced Malaysian Fried Chicken)
3. Teh Tarik (Pulled Tea)
I'll introduce the produce that will be used in our class such as fresh coconut milk, lemongrass, ikan bilis (anchovies), belacan (shrimp paste), etc.
You will prepare, hands-on, authentic Malaysian dishes in a real Malaysian kitchen. You will also receive printed recipes so that you could cook Malaysian dishes for your family and friends back home.
Lastly, enjoy a delicious meal together with me and my family while hearing stories of the Malaysian way of life.
