At 10:15, the cooking class commences. Cook tasty Malay, Nyonya and/or Indian cuisine with the help of professional chefs. Peranakan or Nyonya cuisineis a unique combination of Chinese,Malayand other influences. Peranakansare descendants of early Chinese migrants who settled in Penang, Malacca, IndonesiaandSingapore, inter-marrying with local Malays. The old Malay word, nyonyais a term of respect and affection for women of prominent social standing (part madame and part auntie). The same word has come to refer to the cuisine of the Peranakans.

With a blend of Chinese ingredients with various distinct spices and cooking techniques from the Malay/Indonesian community, Nyonya cooking has a tangy, aromatic, spicy and herbal combination. Mix this with the influence of Indian cuisinethe experience is concluded with a delightful selection of dishes to enjoy for lunch on the patio.
