I am traveling with my spouse on his business trip and this class sounded like an interesting way to spend a few hours mid-day. I have taken cooking classes in other places around the world, but none quite like this one. I learned so much about local cuisine & picked up a few good general cooking tips, too. Many of... More

We signed up in advance for this small group class with Ruqxana. The class is conducted in her home, mostly in a covered patio at the back that has been converted into a classroom facility. We prepared coconut rolled pancakes (kueh dadar), black pepper prawns, and rice noodles in sour gravy - and then ate them for lunch on a... More

Wow. A great day learning about Malaysian food. The facilities, food and Ruxqana were excellent. I went only to learn one thing, Beef Rendang. Perfect and a great experience. Best cooking class I have been to (And I go to them whenever I travel). I learnt a lot, the food was nothing short of amazing and exactly what I wanted... More

Our group of three friends thoroughly enjoyed the cooking class with Ruqxana. She was a most hospitable and friendly teacher and we enjoyed eating the very tasty meals we made. Highly recommended.

I live in Singapore and have been to this class twice this month. Ruqxana is a really knowledgeable host and very friendly. The class is in a great setting, feels very homely and authentic. The food is delicious and the class is fun. I would definitely recommend it for tourists and locals alike.

I took one of the cooking classes today and loved it so much that I signed up for more. I liked Ruqxana's causal kitchen set-up, her preparation skills, her love for cooking and willingness to share her culinary creativity. She makes cooking experience easy for the participants without cutting corners. We made everything from scratch! I am going back for... More

I live in Singapore and decided to bring a few guests to cooking class -- we had so much fun! Roqxana clearly loves teaching not just the cuisine but about the local ingredients too. It was such a fun Saturday morning, and a skill I can take home with me too :)

This was my 2nd time with Roqxana at cookery magic. She recognised me after three years! Great fun morning as usual with this very interesting and knowledgable lady. We made fish curry, dahl and a Singaporean bread called roti pratha. Roqxana is something of an expert on herbs and spices, some of which she grows in her own garden. When... More

We were given a cookery lesson for a gift and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Ruqxana and her assistant had some of the ingredients prepared but we had to cut, slice and pound as well as stir, to make the delicious meal that we later ate. Ruqxana is very friendly with a sense of humour while at the same time teaching... More

I had 12 hrs in Singapore in transit. This was an absolutely delightful way to spend a few hours before heading off on the next jet. Close to the airport (and to the centre of town in the other direction). Very easy access in a lovely hilly suburb. Chef and her colleague were absolutely delightful and accommodating. They allowed mistakes... More
