Learn how to make 3 iconic Nyonya Kuihs, or local desserts, with Li Ting and her mom in Melaka.

Welcome to my cooking class, which takes place in a 2-storey bungalow located in a peaceful residential area mostly resides by the locals. It is fully air-conditioned allowing you to cook in comfort. Our session will be fully-hands on, from making the floral design on Pineapple Tarts, to knocking out the Angku Kuih and roll palm sugar into the mochi-like Onde-Onde.

You'll get to make 3 iconic kuih, which are:
- Angku Kuih (glutinous rice dumpling with sweet mung bean filling)
- Pineapple Tart (crispy open-faced tart with pineapple topping)
- Onde-onde (Malaysian mochi with liquid Gula Melaka filling)

We will provide everything you'll need - ingredients, cooking tools and an expert instructor (my mom or myself)! Once you're done, enjoy your own creations with free flow of coffee and tea!
