      Re-create authentic Malaysian flavours with precision and skill
      Great cooking class with a superb instructor. Sara taught a complex and demanding recipe (Hainanese chicken rice) with patience and skill, and the final dish turned out exactly as it should. Note that I am a novice cook with an underlying fear of knives and open flames 😊 The course was held in her mother’s home kitchen, which was spacious and well equipped with everything you need. We began with a tour of her back garden, where we harvested the herbs for the recipe. Sara and her mum prepared a wonderful breakfast before starting the course, including “Ten Thousand Fragrance” tea (also from the garden). What I really liked about this cooking class was the precision: all of the recipes I got from Sara were exact, with the amounts measured out in grams or liters. This has made it possible for me to re-create this unique recipe in my own kitchen.

      Satay, Malay pulled tea and Wok fried Kwai Teo flat noodles
      Thoroughly enjoyable experience learning Malay hawker cooking and its herbs and spices by passionate Sara. Have always wanted to learn do my go chicken satay properly as well as showing off pulling Malay tea Teh Terik, but turned out most difficult frying Keow Teo rice noodles but manage doing so in only two and a a minutes under the heat of a hot wok. Delish and fun that worth our sweats.

      A great glimpse into traditional Malaysian cooking
      A couple of doting moms and teens spent a morning learning how to cook popular Malaysian fare, including sourcing and a garden herb tour. Sara is thorough and patient, the kitchen was perfectly set up for our group of 5, and the family garden is beautiful. It was a fun experience, and highly worthwhile if you love food and want to learn more about the local culture.

      Great cooking class!
      I really enjoyed this authentic Malaysian cooking class during my time in Kuala Lumpur. Sara and her mother were very gracious hosts and have a lovely home. The cooking class was very organized, easy to follow and all the food was delicious. I look forward to making these recipes back home!!

      Simply delightful!
      I was not particularly gifted in cooking and thought it was a hassle. But coming to the New Malaysian Kitchen just opened my eyes on how easy it is to cook these complicated and delicious Malaysian dishes. Now, I can go anywhere in the world knowing how to whip up my favourite Char Kuey Teow dish and also pulled tea ('teh tarik'). I also selected the satays in peanut butter sauce and banana fritters too, as appetisers and desserts. I must say they were quite delicious as well, to my surprise with my amateur cooking skills. Well, I must attribute this to Sara Khong for being such a methodical, good and fun teacher. Highly recommended.

      A “must do” if you love cooking
      With Sara we had excellent Malaysian cooking lessons. She informs you upfront with some route information, very convenient. I was lucky to be in a very friendly and polite Japanese company. Sara showed us everything, - the herbs and seeds in her own garden - how to make your own spice, curry, marinade and sambal - and of course the dishes itself, it was very well prepared with a small recipe book, together with all the ingredients. We made the following dishes: Malaysian Four-angled bean salad Nasi Lemak Sambal Malaysian Spiced fried chicken pearl Sago Pudding Malaysian pulled tea It tasted really excellent, better than in my 5-star hotel! Afterward Sara send us some tips, pictures, and additional recipes. It is a really “must do” if you love cooking. A big thank you for Sara.

      Best cooking class
      The class was perfect. Sara is a very friendly teacher. She knows how to structure the lesson for maximum pleasure and the best cooking result. My wife, my teenage girls and me enjoyed the stay at her home very much.

      Fun and Authentic Cooking Experience!
      My adult daughter and I chose this activity as a fun way to spend time together while she was visiting on holiday and as a way to learn more about cooking authentic Malaysian dishes including nasi lemak, ayam goreng berempah and teh tarik. We had the best time! Sara was a welcoming, thoughtful and enthusiastic host. She was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. We not only learned a lot but had so much fun! We enjoyed making and sampling culinary delights made with fresh ingredients right out of her lovely garden. We loved the edible garden tour and learning about the different plants and how they are used in various ways. Sara was an amazing instructor. She explained the purpose of the ingredients and preparation methods and adapted activities to meet the ages and abilities of the class. She offered many cooking tips and hacks. Her enthusiasm was contagious and I hope to be back for more classes in the future! My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would highly recommend it!

      This is a must do 5 star activity
      My family of 5 ( husband and me and my mum in law and put 10 year old twins) had a private cooking class today. It was so well organized and Sara is extremely knowledgeable and kind. She made sure the kids were kept interested. My mum in law is a great cook but has never before cooked Malaysian. She and I both bought Sara’s cookbook and can’t wait to cook from the book. It’s relaxed but you’ll learn loads and leave feeling like Sara and her lovely mum are friends. Oh and the food we cooked was amazing!

      Wonderful experience
      Sara was a very warm and engaging cooking instructor and she made the class very enjoyable. I elected to cook a range of hawker foods and I ended up making 5 authentic dishes (including pulled tea), that tasted just like they would from a hawker stand. I was very impressed with all of the skills and kitchen hacks I picked up during the class. Thanks Sara.

      Like cooking with a friend
      Sara was a very good instructor and is a very lovely and helpful person! She prepared a nice recipe book for us and showed us around in her beautiful garden. She explained a lot about the plants. We cooked a traditional malaysian meal which was very delicious and easy to make. We really enjoyed it. We even got a traditional Malaysian breakfast before we started cooking. Sara was so nice that we felt like cooking with a friend.

      Authentic Experience
      We were 3 friends from Europe and willing to discover more about the Malaysian cuisine. We spent a really nice time with Sara! The class was well organised : all the ingredients and cooking tools ready to be used, recipe booklet to bring back home and email with pictures and tips. We cooked Nasi Lamak with fried chicken and Teh Tarik. Typical recipes but accessible for beginners and Sara takes time to explain all the steps, I recommend that class for a local experience.

      Wonderful cooking and market experience
      My sister and I spent a great morning with Sarah exploring the local wet market to source produce and then prepare and cook it for lunch. On the way to the market we dropped in to pick up fresh coconut milk from a local couple who showed us how they hulled the flesh from the coconuts and then put it through a machine that grinds the flesh, squeezing the moisture (milk) into a container. At the market Sarah showed us local vegetable produce and we sampled a slice of delicious sticky pork that the vendor packs in a fresh bread roll for a lunch treat. We met Sarah's lovely Mum who explained for what dishes you'd use the different types of noodles and lots of other valuable tips. Returning to Sarah's home we sat down to a local breakfast, including roti canai and nasi lemak. We then toured the garden which was full of many and varied edible plants, some of which we picked to enhance the flavours of the dishes we were about to cook. We made char okay teow and chicken skewers with satay dipping sauce followed by a sago pudding made with fresh coconut milk and real palm sugar. It was a full on five hours and we left with take away for dinner having had a wonderful experience. Thanks Sarah

    This was SO MUCH FUN! II found the virtual cooking class by Sara to be one of the best ways to learn Malaysian cooking from home - WAY BETTER than watching YouTube. Having Sara guide me through each step and explain all the details was so valuable and her expertise shines through as soon as you connect with her. She knows her stuff!
    For my first class (I will be doing many more, Malaysian food is some of the best in the world and Sara is incredible!) , I requested Nasi Lemak, and WOW, I was so surprised by how delicious it turned out for my first time! As a beginner cook, I was not expecting that I could actually make something that delicious! And that's all because of how Sara guides you through each step and tells you exactly when to do what at the right time and explains to you why! She has excellent skills and learning from her can help you improve much faster than trying to learn from online recipes or YouTube, it's definitely a worthwhile experience.
    And even though the class was online, I think it was just as good as in person, because Sara went above and beyond by helping me before and during the class with the requirements. It was an amazing experience, especially during these times! I will be doing more classes!

    My teenage daughter and I had a market tour, followed by breakfast, a tour through the garden with all the spices, then cooked lunch and enjoyed the great food.
    We loved the whole experience and this was certainly one of the highlights of our trip. To also meet her mom and see a private house added to the unique experience.

    Sara was wonderful - she explained everything very well, made sure we knew what we were doing and always made sure to include my daughter. Her recipe booklet is made with a lot of love and thoughts of how we can replicate it at home.

    We cooked Lasi Nemak (which we wrapped into a banana leaf) with fried chicken, had fun doing the "pulled tea" and the ondeh-ondeh dessert as well as a bean salad. We had Nasi Lemak with fried chicken afterwards in a restaurant and instantly recognized that they had used less coconut milk and less spices, the chicken was just a normal fried chicken and missed the different spices. Sara's recipe definitely was much tastier!!!

    We can only recommend this cooking class!!!

    I learned how to cook Hainanese Chicken Rice woohoo! with the beautiful Chef Sara. She is kind and friendly and also shared some knowledge on different varieties of special herbs in her garden. I am definitely saving some cash from now onwards coz cooking is less expensive than eating at restaurants. And of course home cooked food simply tastes better and you're in control of the ingredients. I love the calamansi juice too. Can’t wait to cook what I’ve learned at home to share with my family & friends. Thank you Sara & see you soon.

    We were there to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday and had an absolutely fabulous time cooking with Sara! As a Singaporean, this is a familiar cuisine, but the cooking tips, interaction, and connections that we built with Sara (and her mom) were priceless. The experience of cooking in a home, as a family, was unforgettable. The entire family had a blast! My two boys (10 and 7) said "This is the best Satay we've ever had!" - these two foodies have had tons of Satay so they totally know what the are talking about!

    I took this cooking class with a friend. Even though I had rarely cooked before, I was able to complete a wonderful dish with her kindness. It was an amazing experience to look around the garden in her house, listen to the instructions, and harvest some of the ingredients. While cooking, she also gave me explanations about the ingredients, which helped me understand. Sharing the dishes together allowed me to get to know about the different Malay cultures, and also got good information about tourism and restaurants. Unless you feel heavily burdened by the price of the cooking class, surely this will be one of the best experiences.
    (btw, my friend enjoyed her advice about durian ice cream :) )

    So delightful to meet you Sara Khong our friendly cooking instructor. She is so helpful and guide us throughout the cooking lessons for ondeh-ondeh, ayam goreng berempah, nasi lemak, four angled beans salad and teh tarik.

    I was so impressed with the tour in the garden with different varieties of herbs which I have not seen some before. Enjoying cooking with Sara and she is kind enough to share tips with us on each dishes. Her explanation was clear.

    Will definitely join her classes again if I have the opportunity in future.

    Thanks Sara 😊

    I can not find the contact information so I am going to write it here. Why do you have to wait to decline one week after I booked ? You know time is very vulnerable when traveling in limited times. I was kind of excited to participate in this tour. Very sad. That's life maybe.

    Hello. I am on maternity leave and did not have time to check my email as I am caring for my new baby full time. That is the reason for the delay in responding to you. But I'm sure you had a great time in Kuala Lumpur anyway as there are plenty of other food related activities you could do. *Additional notes to other traveler (5/9/2023)* A traveler read about this review and contacted me about ‘cancelling a class’. To make it clear, I did not cancel a class. Fearless19255301713 had requested for a class and I declined (a week later). I do not have instant booking set on Tripadvisor. Once you request for a class, I can decline it or accept it. I have never canceled a class I accepted in my history of teaching. Hope this clear the air!

    Our family of 6 (2 adults, and 4 children ages 12, 11, 8 and 6) thoroughly enjoyed our morning of cooking at Sara's home kitchen in KL. We were looking for a fun learning experience for our kids and a chance to understand more about Malaysian ingredients. We got all of that and more. Sara was extremely patient with each of our children and included them in all activities. My kids left with big plans to cook many of the recipes at home - which we are confident we will be able to do thanks to the cute recipe book Sara provided and all of the additional tips we received. Thank you, Sara!

    I experienced a wonderful cooking lesson with Sarah as the expert on cooking, Malaysian and Chinese traditions. We started at the market where many of the ingredients were identified - and many other things....

    Then cooking class and as the finale - the Malaysian lunch.... just wonderful!

    TQ Sarah!
