Our hands-on cooking classes are held Monday to Saturday and presented in English by entertaining Malaysian instructors. We are located just outside Kuala Lumpur city centre and our school is furnished with purpose made demonstration tables and individual cooking stations. Each day of the week we teach a different ethnic menu and provide detailed explanations of ingredients and cooking methods. Students individually prepare their own 4-course lunch, usually consisting of an appetizer, main course, side dish and dessert. Malaysian cuisine is a unique fusion of Malay, Chinese, Indian and Baba-Nonya flavors, drawing upon our country's rich history as an historical crossroads for explorers and traders from around the globe. At LaZat our goal is to bring Malaysian cooking to the world by sharing with you our family recipes, which we have savored and perfected over generations. « less

The morning market tour by Chef Sue explained local ingredients and the classes were an excellent balance of teaching and hands on experience The location , in a more traditional malay house surrounded by trees is also a great chance to get...

I have always wanted to learn how to make Beef Rendang the authentic way, it could not have come in a more delightful setting than at Lazat. The staff at Lazat was absolutely wonderful, helpful and patient. Starting from the local "wet" market tour, one appreciates the different spices that are unique to Malaysian cooking. I made the Beef Rendang... More

We were picked up in a very comfortable air-conditioned vehicle from our hotel and driven to meet other participants and guides in a market. The market though small and possibly a particularly clean one was better organised than some we have visited in Asia and the guide, Rose, made the tour interesting. We were then driven to La Zat in... More

She told us a lot about traditional ingredients and the ingredients we would be using. We even got to try a couple of things. She... More

A trip to Malaysia is not complete until you have learned how to prepare a few local delicacies to bring back home and share with your loved ones :) Beautiful atmosphere, professional chefs and helpers, delicious recipes and an experience to cherish... I will definitely return :-D
