Celebrating a significant milestone birthday with my sister, we chose a cooking class as a fun thing to do whilst in KL. It ended up being one of the *best* things we did in KL.
We chose the hotel pick up/drop off option (recommend you do this too) and met our fellow international students in the vehicle on the way to the market. We were a happy group from Australia, Japan and the UK.
The market visit was really a walk through and for breakfast: as the ingredients we would be using were already purchased and at the school. The Malay traditional breakfast was great (so make sure you skip your hotel breakfast!) and the short tour of the market interesting and informative. You can purchase anything you wish and the spice shop is probably where you will spend a few ringits! Roslyn was a delight.
And onto the cooking class. The setting is an open kitchen overlooking huge trees - which were home to a community of monkeys. Our instructor for the day was Saadiah. Saadiah is a genuinely warm, engaging lady with an easy going, fun personality. She readily shared her early history of learning to cook from her mum as well as her tips to enjoy life.
A love for food is intrinsic to the Malay people and LaZat exhibits the same warmth for food and people. The cooking is demonstrated by Saadiah and then you are hands on creating the same dishes. Our "Malay Classic" class included prawn sambal, nasi lamak and sago pudding which after cooking, is enjoyed with your group upstairs at a shared table.
We were fortunate to meet Ana who is a delightful, vivacious host. All my communications with LaZat were swift and thoughtful.
This was a highlight of our KL stay and both my sister and I highly recommend LaZat. Thank you so much for a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable day.
