Our Guest Reviews

  • This was my second cooking class in South East Asia and I was really amazed of how different it was from my first experience. You have your private chef who teaches you exactly how to prepare the dishes step by step so you will also be able to make them from scratch back home. Samuel's passion and knowledge for the Malaysian cuisine is outstanding. It also gives you a nice introduction in a locals daily life, which was also super interesting. Thanks for everything.

  • We would give this class a 6 stars review but Google won’t allow us to do that 🙂 This exceeded expectations and was a really special experience. It was so well organized, professional and well thought through. You can tell this is Chef Samuel's passion and it really shines through in his teaching and attention to detail. We love Malaysian cuisine and its complex flavors and appreciated having Samuel educate us on all of the ingredients, the stories behind the dishes, the techniques and so much more. His place is the ideal setup and is just the right balance of a professional cooking space while feeling intimate in a personal home. Also, my wife has a gluten and dairy intolerance and Samuel was very accommodating. And of course, all of the food was so delicious, it was the best food we've had in our 1 month stay in Malaysia and we've had a lot of delicious food! I look forward to making those dishes at home one day to share with friends and family. Thank you Chef Samuel!

  • What an awesome day spent with Chef Samuel!! We got to see local markets in action while gathering all the ingredients for the afternoon, once back at Chefs home we were ready to start cooking and get an understanding of the differences between Malaysian, Thai and Indian cooking and curries. We had a great afternoon where cooking was genuinely fun and didn't feel like a chore. Also dishes we had been afraid of or that felt complicated now seem much easier and we are armed and ready to show off our new dishes to family and friends. We would definitely cook with Chef again on our next visit and hope to see you both in Australia one day
