Cookery lesson in Kuching

Kuching Cooking Lesson

This tour gives you the choice of learning how to cook traditional Malay, Indian or Chinese's everyday food.

A Malay, Indian or Chinese family living in Kuching will invite you into their home and show you how to make traditional local food. Before you start your cooking session you follow your guide to a local market to buy all the ingredients needed.

As a guest in the family's house, you can observe the Malaysian way of life. For example, don't forget to take off your shoes when you walk into the house. You will go with your guide who will give you more information about the customs of Malaysian family life.

During each cooking session, which lasts for about two hours, you will be able to try your hands-on cooking two dishes of your choice. After the cooking session, you will be invited to eat with the family and to taste your own cooking.
