I live in Singapore and have been to this class twice this month. Ruqxana is a really knowledgeable host and very friendly. The class is in a great setting, feels very homely and authentic. The food is delicious and the class is fun. I would definitely recommend it for tourists and locals alike.

I took one of the cooking classes today and loved it so much that I signed up for more. I liked Ruqxana's causal kitchen set-up, her preparation skills, her love for cooking and willingness to share her culinary creativity. She makes cooking experience easy for the participants without cutting corners. We made everything from scratch! I am going back for... More

I live in Singapore and decided to bring a few guests to cooking class -- we had so much fun! Roqxana clearly loves teaching not just the cuisine but about the local ingredients too. It was such a fun Saturday morning, and a skill I can take home with me too :)

This was my 2nd time with Roqxana at cookery magic. She recognised me after three years! Great fun morning as usual with this very interesting and knowledgable lady. We made fish curry, dahl and a Singaporean bread called roti pratha. Roqxana is something of an expert on herbs and spices, some of which she grows in her own garden. When... More

We were given a cookery lesson for a gift and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Ruqxana and her assistant had some of the ingredients prepared but we had to cut, slice and pound as well as stir, to make the delicious meal that we later ate. Ruqxana is very friendly with a sense of humour while at the same time teaching... More

I had 12 hrs in Singapore in transit. This was an absolutely delightful way to spend a few hours before heading off on the next jet. Close to the airport (and to the centre of town in the other direction). Very easy access in a lovely hilly suburb. Chef and her colleague were absolutely delightful and accommodating. They allowed mistakes... More

My family and I spent the day making delicious Malayan dishes with Roqxana. Roqxana was really friendly and we couldnt believe we had made such interesting dishes - we learnt loads and will be trying all the dishes back home (in slightly colder weather!) Would recommend to anyone who loves cooking, for a unique cooking experience (we also enjoyed meeting... More

A really fun trip starting with an expedition to Changi and then a boat trip to Ubin. The cooking excusion was in Kampong Durian at a wonderful heritage wooden kampong house, a rare sight in Singapore now. Really interesting to hear from the family of the house how they've lived there for 4 generations, after which they took us for... More

My colleagues and I did the cooking class with Ruqxana and it was fabulous. We actually did it on Pulau Ubin (one of Singapore's small and still just barely inhabited islands that is a 10 minute boat ride from Changi point) in a traditional Malay kampong home. In addition to learning about the food and some great cooking techniques (let... More

I wanted to explore experience more local than just looking around the city. It was a good idea to participate the class. Learn local herbs, cooking logics, have nice chat with class mates.
