Come and visit Lazat Malaysian Cooking School and bring back an authentic taste of Malaysia! Our hands-on cooking classes are held Monday to Saturday and presented in English by entertaining Malaysian instructors. We are located just outside Kuala Lumpur city centre and our school is furnished with purpose made demonstration tables and individual cooking stations. Each day of the week we teach a different ethnic menu and provide detailed explanations of ingredients and cooking methods. Students individually prepare their own 4-course lunch, usually consisting of an appetizer, main course, side dish and dessert. Malaysian cuisine is a unique fusion of Malay, Chinese, Indian and Baba-Nonya flavors, drawing upon our country's rich history as an historical crossroads for explorers and traders from around the globe. At LaZat our goal is to bring Malaysian cooking to the world by sharing with you our family recipes, which we have savored and perfected over generations.

We are vegetarians and Ana and her team catered for us to the max. We were picked up from our hotel early morning and went to the market where we had a light breakfast and were shown round the stalls for various fruits and spices. Then we made our way to the venue. The location and setting was beautiful. My... More

I've been taking cooking classes during my travels and this is my 10th cooking class in Southeast Asia. I have to say out of all of them this was my favorite! I've been on many market tours, but I learned a few new things on this tour that I haven't learned in past market tours, like how to pick fresh... More

I just spent the day with the staff at LaZat. We had a wonderful time. I attended with 5 friends and we were picked up at 7:20am and did not finished until 2:30pm. We were told that we would be done by 12:00pm. Either way, they asked if we were in a rush and we said no. We had an... More

I have done two classes this week, Monday and Wednesday mornings. Pick up went very smoothly and we went straight to the market where we were met one day by Laty and the other by Anna. We had a lovely breakfast of roti having watched it being made and then walked around looking at the various foods and learning about... More

Our first day in KL was spent at Lazat cooking school and we couldn't have asked for a better way to start to our two week holiday. Laty took us through the local market prior to the class and shared interesting cooking tips , introducing us to the local spices and various vegetables that the locals cook with. Lazat cooking...

We did a twist on the traditional Malay course when we visited Lazat, as the other person that joined us had specifically requested to do 2 additional dishes. We were picked up on time and had a lovely market visit followed by a delicious roti breakfast. The cooking school itself is in a wonderful location - you feel as though... More

I did the Thursday morning class last week and loved every minute! The class does seem more expensive than others available but the experience really was very enjoyable and I would definitely recommend it to others, if their budget permits. Despite the other members of my group being really late, Laty made sure that I wasn't inconvenienced and I was... More

Starting with an informative and interesting tour of the market and a delicious local breakfast before heading back to the cooking school to learn how to make some classic dishes. The staff were warm & welcoming from the moment we arrived, they were also incredibly knowledgable. The school... More

Ok, I have never joined a paid touristic cooking class where they charge you a bundle to learn how to cook simple things but I suppose this is the kind of classes. Anyway, I always thought the money spent there is better spent eating the different varieties of food out there. If you like something, try it again because "I... More
