When are our Classes?

Please Note: Our classes are extremely popular and we ask you to give us as much notice as you can. We are often unable to assist you with last minute or next day bookings unless we have a cancellation. Please be aware that to avoid disappointment, book at least 1-2 weeks in advance. Thank you.

Classes are available on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday each week, and start at 8.00am.

If these days don't suit you, we may consider other days by appointment. Please contact us for more details. We also offer a vegan/vegetarian class in the afternoon which starts at 3.00pm.

Classes usually run no later than 1.00pm (6.00pm for the afternoon vegan/vegetarian classes) and we make a minimum of four items in each session, sometimes five items. Some items are more simple to make, some take longer than others. Nazlina will decide what is appropriate, given the time and resources that we have on the day.

Please Note; We make 4 to 5 items including dessert per session for RM250 inclusive per person, and we assure you that this is a truly value for money experience. We are unable to give any discounts so please be aware of this. We can however personalize your session if your group is 12 people or more for a team building experience.

Please Note: Even though the menus are advertised here, they are not set in stone. They are flexible.You can request in advance or when we meet up at breakfast. We will let you know if it is possible to cook the menu of your choice and we try to be as flexible as possible in every session. Having said that, menus are designed in such a way that the items complement each other. So, for example, I don't make chicken curry laksa served with noodles and Malay chicken curry served with rice in the same class.

There are no market tours for the afternoon classes but participants are welcome to join the morning classes' group for the market tour and breakfast at 8.00 am and come later to cook at 2.30pm. For this option it is RM250
