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 people at LaZat make it the best cooking school I've been to. They picked us up at our hostel and took us to the market. Sue encouraged us to take pictures and ask questions. 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

The school is located in a beautiful house situated in an equally beautiful village! The vegetarian class is divided into 4 parts. During the class you learn how to cook 4... More

Wonderful Malaysia Memory. After reservations, LaZat driver will pick you up at your location/hotel and take you to market. We met Saddia who taught us Malay vegetables and spices and introduced us to traditional Malay dishes and tea (please purchase these two inexpensive things from the booth to enjoy experience). Then driver will take you to LaZat and you'll be... More
