My sister and I only had 1 full day to spend in Penang and Pearly's cooking course was the optimal way to fit in most of what we wanted to experience - visiting a market, learning about local food, cooking and most of all EATING. Although it was expensive, we were both happy with the value we received for the cost. Both Pearly and Chandra came to pick us up promptly in the morning, we spent lots of time at the local market sampling food and learning about herbs, spices and veggies and then had a full afternoon of cooking and feasting in their fully equipped home (the fresh nutmeg juice was amazing). Pearly provided recommendations for spices I could bring home as presents, and both her and Chandra gave us local tips for the best restaurants and sights to visit in our limited time left in Penang. As a bonus, we even had a fantastic film crew following us around all day to record the entire experience for an upcoming documentary on Nyonya cooking. Lots of fun and highly recommended.
