On 22.2.2020 it is never 2 much when it comes to learning. So why not make 3 famous Nyonya kuih or traditional snacks with your local expert in Melaka!

In this class, you will learn to make Onde-onde, Pineapple Tart and Angku Kuih. These iconic Peranakan snacks are commonly made for special occasions and celebrations, as they symbolise fortune and prosperity. In the past, these recipes were kept secret as is tradition, but now that times have changed, your instructor will be sharing her prized family recipes along with her beloved mother.

The 3-hours class will provide everything you need from ingredients, cooking tools and an expert instructor. At the end of the class, you can enjoy your handmade Kuih with free flow of non-alcoholic drinks.

The class will be taken place in a 2-storey bungalow located in a peaceful residential area mostly resided by the locals. The house is fully air-conditioned so you can cook comfortably under our hot and humid local weather.
