Malaysian To Go

On our Malaysian To Go evening cookery course you will spend 3 hours of fast-paced cookery to create a delicious Malaysian meal for two to take-home.

Traditional Malay cuisine is a melting pot of a variety of neighbouring influences, but the overriding feature is spicy, flavourful dishes that incorporate a variety of fresh herbs and seasonings, pounded with dried spices to create concentrated pastes. Coconut and coconut milk are major ingredients in many Malay dishes, which are generally served with rice or noodles.

With step by step instruction from our expert chef tutor you will be recreating authentic Malaysian flavours in a delicious meal for two that you will take home - just like a take-away, only better! Plus you will have learned some great new culinary skills.
