Our Malay Kampung

From: RM270.00

Chef Samuel’s Malay Cooking Class


Kampung means ‘village’ in Malay, and it represents a traditional way of living for friendly communal ethnicities. Inspired by our forefathers, Malay people still preserve a lot of their traditional cooking methods by using elaborate stone kitchen equipment, such as batu lesong, batu giling, labu sayong, dulang tembaga, nyiru and kukuran kelapa. Lots of food is usually served to share with the whole Kampung. We certainly enjoy the ambience a lot, and also their dining etiquette, as it promotes a sense of togetherness.

Starting with a complimentary pick up service from your hotel or residence, in the morning we’ll visit Ayer Itam market, one of the oldest and busiest wet markets in Penang. Here you’ll learn more about fresh local Malaysian produce while wandering through the stalls of this otherwise hidden market area. Enjoy a cup of local Penang coffee, and sample an authentic hawker breakfast in a nearby kopitiam (coffee shop), before we head back to our cooking studio to continue your culinary adventure. With a refreshing nutmeg juice at your side and breathtaking bird’s-eye views of Penang, this authentic Malay cooking class is yours to enjoy.

Ayam Rendang
Malay Dry Chicken Stew with Spices

Grilled fish cake from ground fish & squids mixed with tapioca starch and spices

No more shall be explain through this signature Malay cooking class with the best-selling combo of dishes which Malaysia are known for! Nasi Lemak is the national dish of Malaysia and is popularly consumed at all times of the day, even supper! Rendang, on the other hand, is commonly mistaken as a Malay curry, but rather it is a thick stew that is simmered down with spices. Otak-Otak is a popular dish that is usually spotted near the coastal areas of both Malaysian and Indonesian regions, due to the availability of various seafood. No more shall be explained though, as this signature Malay cooking class will do the talking for itself!
