Update 4/6/2020: This is a live, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. The Instructor will be assisted by a remote Event Lead who will facilitate conversation during class and ensure all students are attended to. We encourage students to have all the ingredients and equipment set up before the class begins to prepare for cooking during the class. We will be recording the class and we hope to make the recording available to students after an editing process to protect the privacy of our students’ homes.

Malaysian dishes are notorious for its laborious recipes.  Here we have picked several delicious recipes that are five ingredients and under (assuming you have a pantry of salt, sugar, oil, soy sauce and sesame oil to start with), and we can create a delicious Nyonya meal. Yes, it is possible!


Cucumber pickle
Curry Powder Chicken Wings - Oven-roasted marinated wings
Short Rib Pong Teh - Braised short ribs in a spicy, soy-miso sauce
Tamarind Prawns - Demo only (Linda will be cooking during the lesson, but we won't have time to cook along together due to the time constraints of the class)
Coconut Rice

This menu contains the following common allergens: shellfish, soy, nuts and wheat. Let us know if you're allergic to anything by sending us a note at before purchasing a ticket.
