Since I came back to Penang after living overseas for almost 25 years, I have started a new pilot project to see if it will take off and to decide if this is something I would enjoy doing. And, most importantly is to earn a living.
Our lovely guests, husband and wife team from Taipei, Taiwan enjoying a great time with their host, Victor Khoo. They started their day with Victor picking them up at 8:45 am from their hotel – Muntri Mew – in George Town. From there, they made their way to his local wet market in Tanjung Bungah, which took 25 minutes to drive. Along the way, Victor explained his plan for the day and discussed the differences between each dishes to cook.
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!
Have you ever use soy sauce in your cooking? and, ever wonder where it comes from or how it is made?
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.
An awesome time hosting our guests from UK – Colin and Julie – for 3 days during their stay in Penang.
