Cooking Traditional Food Class in Penang with Nazlina

Location: Nazlina Spice Station at no. 2, Campbell Street, 10100 George Town, Penang, Malaysia.

Classes are available daily except on Sundays. Meet in front of Campbell Street market at the corner of Campbell Street and Carnarvon Street at 7.30 a.m. or request for transport. If you stay within 10 minutes walk to the area of the meeting point, please refer to George Town map in order to get there on foot. Class approximately lasts for 5 hours.

Each class has up to 12 students per session. Contrary to the popular belief, more students means more fun, more knowledge gleaned, more items to cook (yes, we add more items to the menu at our discretion when we have more people)  and the atmosphere is similar to one of a big, happy family. The more you participate by asking questions and being patient for your turn, the more rewarding it will be.

We also offer private Malay dinner parties with an extensive menu. You can enquire using the same form below.
