Celebrity chef hosts the original Malaysian cooking experience

Since 2007 Ning has pioneered cookery classes in Malaysian food with our very own celebrity chef Norman Musa. Learn more about our chef here.

Showcasing the amazing diversity of delicious Malaysian cuisine, you will learn how to cook some of Malaysia’s most distinctive and iconic dishes found on the streets and in the homes of different parts of this multicultural country. Preparing and cooking from scratch, Chef Norman will guide the novice to experienced alike in developing your knowledge and techniques in a culinary adventure.

Expect a culinary adventure on each class

Each class will take place on a Saturday (so no early Sunday mornings involved!) in our restaurant and/or kitchen and will involve a minimum of starter, main course and dessert. You will be able to enjoy expert, friendly tuition from Chef Norman and/or his team; enjoy your cooking afterwards with wine/beer or non-alcoholic drink and get to take some of it away too if you wish; and receive a full pack of recipes and background reading. Plus you will have the opportunity to buy the essential ingredients to get cooking at home. Very much hands-on, each masterclass includes an inspirational introduction to the theme of the day.

Book today or order as a perfect gift

We expect these classes to be sought after with no more than 12 guests on each class. When booking you must specify the date of the class you wish to join, or wish to purchase as a gift for someone. (If you are unable to do so, then you are welcome to purchase general Ning gift vouchers but this does NOT guarantee a place - it is the recipient's responsibility to book.)
