While we enjoyed the tour of the markets, our cooking class wasn't quite what we had had in mind. We had not been told that the class was so far out of the city and would have to go there by car/taxi. The group was big and was spread across two cars. The kitchen was a little crowded and we...

My girlfriend and I met for the morning class where we discovered that the other people to be in the class that day had cancelled, so the class was only the two of us. This allowed us to focus on a specific dish-- and spice level (hint: spicy!)-- that we wanted. We started the day off with a market tour... More

I took part in this experience this morning and thoroughly enjoyed it. The group I was in consisted of a Canadian, an American, two Germans and two Australians and the multicultural makeup helped make the day. Breakfast was good at the coffee shop across the road, relaxing and it helped us ease into the day. OK so Peter the Dutchman... More

I have to say it was a really enjoyable course. I learned a few bits and the tour before hand was nice. The dishes we cooked were nice and recipes will be used again for sure. The free breakfast was also appreciated. Two grievances though. 1. I think the price point is a bit crazy. For €40 I would expect... More

Loved the market, and cooking by the beach couldn't have been prettier! I would definitely would do this class again and recommend it to all my friends!

We really loved the entire day she. We did this class, early start and having traditional breakfast was a nice bonus (included in price) so was the taxi out to her home after the market tour. Nazlinas home is modern and spacious and a great place for a cooking class. It's true that you don't prepare solely your own fish... More

We started off with some yummy Roti for breakfast and then hit the markets to buy all our ingredients. This was very fascinating! Her new space is great and convenient. However you don't get to cook your own meals like other classes may offer you. You all contribute to making the dishes. She is a lovely lady and explained everything... More

We won't recommend this cooking class to anybody. Last year we experienced a fabulous cooking class in Thailand and this one couldn't live up to it. We started at a local market were Nazlina showed us the local food and herbs, very interesting, although you need a very strong stomach to bare all the senses and animal slaughtering at 7h30...

We just wrapped up a great cooking class with Nazlina in her new facility. Directly opposite the wet market, it's a great location and well set up for cooking classes, with eight cook stations and a long communal table for prep work and eating. Our class felt semi-private: just me, my wife, and two other travelers. We made chicken rendang,... More

I enrolled my mother and myself in a cooking class with the lovely and talented Nazlina Hussin the creator of this wonderful experience. We toured the wet markets and observed Nazlina purchasing the ingredients for our cooking class and she explained to us all about the different spices, fruit and food in the market. The tour included a lot of... More
