Unearth the secrets of Malaysian cuisine and gain insight into the country’s food culture. During this hands-on experience, learn how to make some of the country's most popular dishes from professional chefs. Plus, have a chance to walk through the spice garden and terraces.
This class is perfect if you're eager to learn more Malaysia’s unique culinary traditions. Begin the lesson with a walk around the Tropical Spice Garden, Southeast Asia's award-winning garden with one-of-a-kind cooking school surrounded by jungle trees, wildlife, small herb terraces, and a glimpse of the Andaman Sea.
Next stop for a relaxing steaming cup of herbal tea sweetened with stevia leaves at the Bamboo Garden before making your way to the kitchen. As things heat up, a cloud of fragrant aromas has your stomach grumbling in anticipation.
After some safety instructions, roll up your sleeves and learn how to cook local favorites such as Nasi Lemak (fragrant rice cooked in coconut milk), Assam Laksa (noodles in sour fish gravy), tandoori chicken, or even concoct refreshing spice-inspired beverages and jot down the recipes as instructed by your expert chefs—each specializes in Nyonya, Malay, and Indian cuisines.
After your hard work, finish your day as you indulge in the delicious meal you made at the pavilion and then browse the impressive selection of herbs and spices originating from Penang, Colombo, and Bali at the gift shop.
