Our Malay Kampung Vegetarian

RM270.00

Chef Samuel’s Malay Vegetarian Cooking Class

EveryWednesdays

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.

  • 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

What we’ll Learn

Nasi Lemak
Signature Malaysian Rice Platter with Coconut Milk

Cendawan Rendang
Malay Dry Mushroom Stew with Spices

Cucur Bawang
Deep-fried Onion Malay-style Fritter

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. Cucur Bawang is a staple snack dish that is usually spotted in kampung (village) areas of both Malaysian and Indonesian regions. No more shall be explained though, as this signature Malay cooking class will do the talking for itself!
