I speak English, Malay
Learn to cook Malaysia’s national dish, Nasi Lemak, and fold them into banana leaf pyramids with Sara Khong, author of four cookbooks. You will also be making Ayam Goreng Berempah, a delicious fried chicken marinaded in local spices.
Ever notice the mini green pyramids at the stalls in Malaysia? If you unfold them, you will find Nasi Lemak, Malaysia's beloved dish with fragrant coconut milk rice, spicy sambal, cucumber, and boiled egg. In the old days, this traditional "bungkus" style allowed this meal to be transported easily by workers at the paddy fields - and adds a one-of-a-kind aroma!
You will visit an edible garden with over 50 species of local plants such as lemongrass, turmeric, and laksa leaves. Depending on availability, you may harvest plants for your cooking. There will be printed recipes so that you could recreate it at home.
Lastly, enjoy a delicious meal together with Sara while hearing stories of the Malaysian way of life.
