Cooking class in Penang – 19 January 2019

Penang cooking class with Penang Insights

Our wonderful millennial guests from United Kingdom enjoying a fun time with our host, Victor Khoo, visiting his local wet market and buying the ingredients for the class. They got to taste a few local breakfast – koay teow teng, char koay teow, lam mee, char siew bow and local coffee.

Back at Victor’s kitchen, they were guided by Victor to prepare the ingredients for each of the dishes. They made their own spice paste for the chicken and fish curry. The best part is when we all sat down to enjoy the meal together.

Thank you Lorna, Lisa and John for choosing Penang Insights for your local experience!

Penang countryside

Balik Pulau

Experience the other side of Penang local life away from the city. Imagine surrounded by lush green sceneries and “kampung” lifestyle with the hills on one side and the ocean on the other side. This is the side of Penang that most tourists do not know and have not experience, which is interesting and different from its famed street food, street arts and Unesco sites of Penang.

Cooking class with our Czech Republic guests

Cooking class with our guests from Czech Republic

We had a wonderful time hosting our guests – Radka and Ondre – from Czech Republic on Christmas Eve.

It was a special occasion for them as they celebrate their Christmas far away from home and eating fish is a must in their tradition. So we included a red snapper dish cooked in a nyonya style. We played Christmas songs to create a festive ambiance for the occasion.
