Penang Cooking Class - Excursion

Penang is well-known in all South-East for its cusine. Indian, Chinese, Malay and probably also the influence from the neighboring Thailnd, have made Penang a "must go" mainly to enjoy the food.

How about trying to make some on your own?

Join the Cooking School for a day as a Master Chef.

Day 1:    Penang
 
 

Under the guidance of experienced and professional chefs – each specialising in Nyonya, Malay and Indian cuisines – you can learn to cook local favourites such as Nasi Lemak, Assam Laksa, Chicken Tandoori and even concoct refreshing spice inspired beverages.

Morning classes begin at 9am with a complimentary guided tour of the Spice Terraces . This is followed by a pit stop where you can relax over a steaming cup of herbal tea sweetened with stevia leaves.

Once the tour is over, you will be taken to the cooking school where you will learn to prepare an array of delectable dishes from scratch. As the heat goes up and the AC comes on, you will be engulfed in a cloud of fragrant aromas that will have your stomach grumbling in anticipation.

Lunch is served at The Pavilion when you can indulge in the foods of your labour.

To round off your day, a visit to the Gift Shop is advisable as they have quite an impressive selection of herbs and spices. Individually sourced and imported from the best point of origin – cinnamon sticks and black cardamoms from Sri Lanka, vanilla pods from Bali and cloves and nutmeg from Penang – the spices are neatly packed and sealed for your convenience, so you can buy some back even if you plan on taking them overseas.

  • Garden guided tour with herbal tea
  • Coffee & tea
  • 100% hands-on class
  • Lunch with Chef and a free apron.
