Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Come and visit Lazat Malaysian Cooking School and bring back an authentic taste of Malaysia! Our hands-on cooking classes are held Monday to Saturday and presented in English by entertaining Malaysian instructors. We are located just outside Kuala Lumpur city centre and our school is furnished with purpose made demonstration tables and individual cooking stations. Each day of the week we teach a different ethnic menu and provide detailed explanations of ingredients and cooking methods. Students individually prepare their own 4-course lunch, usually consisting of an appetizer, main course, side dish and dessert. Malaysian cuisine is a unique fusion of Malay, Chinese, Indian and Baba-Nonya flavors, drawing upon our country's rich history as an historical crossroads for explorers and traders from around the globe. At LaZat our goal is to bring Malaysian cooking to the world by sharing with you our family recipes, which we have savored and perfected over generations.

Fantastic tips to make the most of your meal and set in an idyllic location. A definite recommendation from us. We will be coming back with other family & friends!

We had a fantastic time with la zat and our two sons who are no master chefs but really enjoyed the cooking experience.

The staff and setting is fantastic and the overall experience gives a great insight into Malaysian culture and love of food.

You must add this to your list when in KL it's great fun and a really good experience

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.

This is the third cooking class that I've taken in S.E.A and LaZat Cooking Class is by far among the best. The staff is friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. LaZat's Cooking Class is also the cleanest and most well put together cooking class that I've been to. The food is delicious and flavorful, just remember to bring an appetite.

I highly recommend LaZat Malaysian Cooking Class!

Have returned to enjoy this class again. A very happy customer. Thank you Ana for making this class such a special one, with lots of fun and laughter. There were 7 in this class, each from a different nation, made for great entertainment. Ana’s enthusiastic cooking methods made the day very enjoyable. I found the market visit a little rushed this time.
