This was our second visit to Pearly Kee's Home Cooking School and we were not disappointed. The day starts with the pick up from your accommodation and an RV with Pearly at the local morning market. This in itself is worth the cost as not only are you experiencing local sounds and tastes you are also getting Pearly's wealth of information on the various uses of local produce as well as the health benefits of herbs and spices. After the market tour which takes around 45 minutes it is back to Pearly's place to get down to some serious Nyonya cooking under the expert guidance of Pearly who not only makes it interesting but also fun. Menus differ on this visit we cooked Beef Rendang, Arabian Almond Chicken Curry (delicious) and Prawns in a fresh spice paste all of which was our lunch. Throughout the visit Pearly is assisted by Chandra her husband who does a great job at keeping the cold water drinks flowing as well as preparing the rice and nutmeg cordial to go with the cooked dishes. A great day and a great activity to do whilst here in Penang.
