“Cooking class ”
Review of Penang Insights

Penang Insights
Reviewed 22 October 2018 via mobile

Just arrived in George Town, we booked a cooking class, last minute. Victor was a perfect host with a golden combination of both culinary and local experiece. In the morning, he picked us up at the city hotel. On the way, he revealed the menu we were going to cook. First, shopping at the local daily market. Victor explained a lot about local tastes, ingredients and food. After shopping we tried several local dishes and drinks at the food court overthere. Then up to his beautiful, modern and clean appartement in Batu Ferringhi were everything was very well prepared to start the class. Viktor taught us about the spices and flavors and how to make a basic curry paste. The dishes were adjusted to our level of spicyness. We cooked 3 delicious dishes and ate them afterwards. We received the recipes afterwards.
If you look for a personal, educative and tasty experience in Penang, for a fair price, this is the place to be!

Hi Annique,

Thanks once again for choosing Penang Insights for your cooking class.

It is a pleasure to meet both you and your husband, Bas. I am very pleased to know that you both had an enjoyable local experience with me as your travel host.

Wishing you both an enjoyable remaining part of your holiday and honeymoon in your next destinations, Langkawi and KL, before heading back to your home country.

All the best!
