Penang Insights cooking class

Begin your day with a visit to a traditional fresh produce or ‘wet’ market where we will meet local traders selling their wares of exotic fruit, spices, freshly caught seafood and other fresh produce.  We will enjoy a traditional Penang style breakfast with refreshments from the local traders. From here, we will travel back to our kitchen to prepare and enjoy a delicious meal of traditional Penang style food.

Guided by your host, Victor Khoo, we will begin by preparing the ingredients together and then Victor will show you how to cook each dish at your own individual workstation. This is a fun “hands on” class where we will all participate together. The best part is when we sit down to enjoy the meal together.
