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.

I can't say anything bad about our experience with Ana and her team of wonderful cooks. The ambiance is pure Malay, her stories of growing up were enlightening, and the cooking was brilliant. If you miss this experience in Kuala Lumpur you haven't been to Malaysia. Ana thank you for your lovely hospitality and teaching. We will be back. (Need... More

We (three of us) joined the class on December 24, 2016. It was really a great experience. We were picked up at the hotel around 8:00 am and went to the local market where the guide was waiting for us and took around. Since she knew the people working there very well, she picked up herbs, vegies, spices etc and... More

We visited this nice, cosy home nestled in a city 'kampung' (village) for our department gathering. There were around 25-30 of us which in my view is good capacity for this place. Like the customised cooking class/competition and home cooked tea. A nice home-styled, brief get-away for families/colleagues tucked within the city. Reasonable compared to the other cooking classes we... More
