Had a marvellous cooking lesson and experience, the market visit and cooking ingredients introduction was a good bonus. My personal favourite are panang curry, prawn cooked with tamarind sauce and the black sticky rice dessert. A big thank you to Dew and team.

Our instructor Dew and his crew were amazing. First we learned about ingredients in the market and then cooked amazing dishes with their help. Learned so much and enjoyed a lot.
