Penang Cooking Class
Learn to cook Malaysian Traditional Food
Nazlina's Traditional Food Class in Penang teaches you how to prepare a great traditional Malay and/or Nyonya meal.
Every class starts with a typical local breakfast followed by visit to the local wet market where you will be introduced to local vegetables, meat (if applicable, vegetarian classes can be arranged), fish and local spices.
Nazlina Hussin will teach you to identify the spices used and how to use them in your cooking. The fees vary depending on the kinds of food being cooked.
If you have been wondering the correct ways to make curry or how do you get that special color and taste for the rendang, here is the perfect class that you should take up.
We will have fun using the traditional methods for grinding spices.

In July 2012 Nazlina started doing occasional roti canai classes. These classes are based on a request from people. Needless to say I joined a class as I was eager to find out how difficult it was to make roti canai. It turned out to be far more difficult than expected.
There is no minimum number of students. The maximum number of students is 12.
