Best Christmas gift ever
Dec. 2020 • Couples
My husband surprised me with a private cooking class for Christmas and Samuel and his wonderful girlfriend make the whole experience absolutely perfect.

We started with a visit to the wet market, then breakfast at a hawker market which was scrumptious. My husband had chosen some of our favourite Malaysian dishes for us to cook, Nyonya Laksa, Ikam Assam Pedals and Lor back. Samuel is a very knowledgeable chef and having one to one teaching meant we really understood the process. His girlfriend is also knowledgeable about Penang and is history which was an added bonus.

It feels weird to say that the food we cooked was delicious but it absolutely was. One of my favourite laksas in Malaysia and the fish was delicious.

Samuel's studio is Ayer Iran at the base of Penang hill and they have a great view of the city as well.

Totally recommend this amazing class!

Amazing Cooking Class in the Heart of Penang
Jul. 2020 • Couples
We had an amazing time cooking with chef Samuel! The day started with a visit to a local market to source the ingredients for our dishes. It was a beautiful experience to "shop like a local" while enjoying the view of the surrounding landscape and temples.
During the class, we learned to cook several local and popular Malaysian dishes while enjoying stunning view over the city of Penang. It was so much fun and on top of it we learned a lot about Malay culture!
Samuel is a highly experienced chef and a patient and encouraging teacher and we enjoyed every minute of the class!
I'd highly recommend taking a class with Chef Samuel if you're in Penang!
Thank you Chef for a beautiful and unique experience!!

If you like Malay food and you are in Penang, I highly recommend you to take a cooking class with Samuel. He knows what he is doing. He is a pro!! Not only will you learn how to cook Malay specialties but also learn about the history and culture at the same time! Plus you get to enjoy Penang city view from the kitchen! 😍
We loved it!!!

Wonderful Cooking Class
Mar. 2020 • Couples
Me and my boyfriend took this class with Chef Samuel and had so much fun. We loved the food in Malaysia, but it seemed so mysterious to us because of the unfamiliar ingredients and preparation methods. Chef Samuel walked us thru everything and gave us lots of great cooking tips, flavor breakdowns, and more. You even get to go to a famous local market to buy the supplies! It was a lot of hard work, but we felt really proud of ourselves at the end and are definitely going to try and recreate these dishes with the recipes he made. Overall, what an awesome experience in Penang!! I totally recommend it!

Excellent food, fun and informative
Mar. 2020
My husband and I did the private cooking class with Samuel whilst on our honeymoon and loved it. Samuel was great at communicating with us before the class which made it really easy to book and pick the dishes that we wanted to make. The morning trip to the market was great and it was good to have breakfast included, as it was a fairly early start. Cooking the dishes was fun and informative, with Samuel giving mini lessons on some of the ingredients as we cooked. The class is outside of Georgetown (in Air Itam) which would have been good to know beforehand as we would have driven there ourselves rather than using the free transfer as we'd planned to visit Penang Hill that afternoon which is very close. All the food we made was delicious and I think it was some of the best food we ate on our whole trip - would highly recommend!

A Class Not To Be Missed!!
Feb. 2020
Truly a passion for food, Cooking with Chef Samuel is a must to attend whether you are professional chef or just simply a foodie alike. Loved the early morning fresh market tour obtaining freshest ingredients followed by fantastic breakfast before heading to his humble abode for an experience of a lifetime. He started the class with an educational topic on MSG...yeah, little do I know about it except for that its not good for health...lol. I had a fantastic fun time cooking with Samuel while his lovely fiancé Jacqueline snapping memorable pictures. Finally, comes the end product. Nice presentation with simplicity in mind and more importantly, the TASTE is off the chain!!!

Chef Samuel is the Best!
I originally booked for this class as the longer class was already booked out. Samuel was in contact with my straight away to get my details and I let him know that I was interested in the longer class if he had a cancellation. Samuel messaged me 2 days before my class and let me know he had availability for the morning class so I snapped it up. Did not regret it. The day started with a visit to the wet market to buy ingredients and have breakfast. Then we went back to Samuel's to cook and made 3 wonderful dishes. He was extremely informative about the ingredients we were using. Everything in this class was top notch and his partner even gave me some great suggestions and recommendations for shopping and dining. Would love to do this again when I come back to Penang!

Memorable experience!
Feb. 2020 • Friends
This was definitely one of the best things we have done in Malaysia! We have learned so much about different asian cuisine, cooking styles and culture. It was a truly rememberable experience! Samuel is a very passionate, inspiring and yet humble person who will treat you more like you are his guests than customers. ☺️🙏🏻 Do not miss out on having a private cooking class with him! You won‘t regret it

Authentic Malaysian cooking experience
Jan. 2020 • Solo
Inspiring cooking session with Chef Samuel. Chef Samuel shares his passion for cooking local Pernankan cuisine during his culinary classes. He is very knowledgeable in the balance of his spices and ingredients and was very creative with his recipes.

One of the best cooking experiences I ever had, his apartment has an amazing view of Penang. I had the chance to cook spicy ikan Bakar and Kuih Koci in an relaxing environment. Chef Samuel was patient to explain the importance of each ingredient. I could appreciate Pernankan cuisine so much better.

Chef Samuel also prepared a take-home recipe for me to recreate these dishes with my family and friends. Definitely the highlight of my trip!
