This was my second class with the wonderful Ruqxana. It is very special to be invited into a private house out in the suburbs. It's a part of Singapore you wouldn't otherwise to see. Ruqxana is an excellent teacher with a relaxed style and the food we made was delicious. I look forward to my next visit.

After moving to Singapore I asked my husband to buy me some cooking lessons, and I am so happy he found Cookery Magic. Ruqxana is a wonderful teacher and her home is one were you feel instantly at home. I have done two classes and both times I came away feeling happy and relaxed. I have made three of the... More

This experience was found and arranged by another member of our group and it is a real gem. There were six of us all keen on cooking; we started with a visit to a wet market and the associated dry section. The selection of exceedingly fresh fish was stunning, many of them totally new to me. The fresh fruit, vegetables,... More

This was our 3rd visit to Ruqxana's home to learn to cook some regional dishes. Our class had 4 other students (from Scotland, Canada, and Japan) and we were organised to cook in pairs at individual cooking stations. All ingredients were supplied and all were of high quality, many purchased from the market earlier the same day if possible. Everything... More

Ruqxana teaches with passion! Anyone can "cook" but to transform food to something very special requires "magic"... the patience, coaxing, and skill to release flavors is what makes her lessons so special. It's not about a recipe but the skill of tasting, seasoning and timing.... which can only be learned in person, and from a heart-soulful chef. Can't wait to... More

We had an amazing cooking experience with Roqxana and her Nonya menue. It was a wonderful and intimate setting for the three of us who participated with a beautiful and excellent dinner after our cooking effort! Many of the ingredients where prepared and she guided us through all the steps of the cooking process - definitely hands on! I already... More

I saw there is going to be a cooking class with Ruqxana at Pulau Ubin on the 23 July and can`t stand not to sharing my experiense from a previous cooking there. Pulau Ubin classes are not common so it is was a good luck to be in Singapore on the right date. It was one of a kind journey... More

This is my first time to enjoy a "real" or "hardcore" cooking lesson after experiencing numbers of local cooking classes when I was traveling abroad. The biggest difference from others like the ones in Bali, Hanoi etc.. was, the beautiful teacher Ms. Ruqxana never feather-bedded me (I was the only student at this time) and made me go through most...

Pulau Ubin - a unique place that everyone should visit. Ruqxana Vasanwala conducts cooking courses in a unique environment that is already difficult to find. On Pulau Ubin time has stopped and that's what makes cooking unique. Rather than buy spices in your local store, you're picking them from the jungle and cook them. The next cooking class of Pulau...
