    Great experience with parents. They are fluent in English and Mandarin and are truly food-serious people.

  • Great learning experience, exceeded my expectations. Definitely will give it a shot at home and mimic the recipes for the family. Huge professionalism and passion from chef Samuel. Jacquelin is a great host too. Recommended!!

  • I’ve taken several cooking classes throughout Asia from cooking schools to private classes like this. I have to say that this was my favorite private class by a wide margin. The common problem with private classes is that they lack the preparation and available course materials that larger schools offer. Chef Samuel does an EXCELLENT job of both by providing clear recipes and instructions. In addition he provides excellent personal instruction in his comfortable home. I really can’t heap enough praise on him and the professionalism he brings to his work. If I’m back in KL with some free time, I would absolutely book another class with a different menu. Signed a hard to satisfy but very satisfied customer JJ
