Overview
More
Nazlina's Cooking Classes are held 4 days per week. Our morning Market Tour covers both Campbell Street market and Chow Rasta market nearby. As the Market Tour is only available in the morning, people for the afternoon class may join the morning Tour and then come later for the afternoon Class. When you book, please advise as to any dietary requirements or allergies. Nazlina has been featured in New York Times' 36 Hours in Penang, on the BBC Good Food Channel, as well as several in-flight magazines. She built the business single-handedly, starting with renting out garden spaces to hold her classes in, and is now the proud owner of a 100 year old shop-house in the heart of the heritage zone in George Town, Penang. All equipment in the Cooking Studio is of the highest quality including German made stainless steel products, steamers, pans and woks. The prices are RM250 per person for the morning Class, and RM200 per person for the afternoon class (without breakfast or Market Tour).

To eat is to believe ! It is a must to try Nazlina 's laksa if you are in George Town. Her Laksa creations just burst into your palates with intense flavour.... leaving you satiated and hungry for more at the same time!
