Cooking and eating is a central aspect of Asian cultures, known for multiple, often homegrown ingredients, freshly ground spices, herbs, and an intricately layered depth of flavors. A Malaysian cooking class located in the suburbs of Kuala Lumpur (known as K.L.), Lazat gathers its students into a home-like atmosphere and teaches techniques and preparation inherent to Malaysian cuisine.
Booking was relatively seamless online, and we opted for the Malay Classic. Lazat arranges transportation from and to K.L. if needed. Our class had four people, which enabled more personal attention at your own personal cooking station set up and ready to go upon arrival. After grinding away with a mortar and pestle, our nasi lemak (rice in coconut milk) or kueh cara berlauk (savory meat filled cups) didn't look quite as fabulous as our instructors' dishes (Ana and Saadiah), but they sure tasted "lazat" (delicious in Bahasa Malaysia)! We were delighted to receive a cookbook at the end of class to replicate the fun Malaysian cooking memories at home.
