1. Penang Curry Mee

Originating from the bustling streets of Penang, Malaysia, this dish is a harmonious blend of Chinese, Malay and Indian culinary influences, reflecting the rich cultural tapestry of the region. 

The star component of this noodle dish is a fragrant and spicy creamy coconut milk-based broth infused with aromatic spices, coconut milk and chilli paste resulting in a complex flavour. It is served with yellow noodles and rice vermicelli and topped with a medley of condiments such as prawns, shredded chicken, soaked cuttlefish, cockles, long beans, beansprouts, spongy tofu puffs and garnished with fresh herbs. This dish is truly a symphony of texture and flavours. 

In this class, we will be focusing on mastering the different techniques in preparing each component.

This delectable sweet treat is known for its irresistible combination of soft, slight chewy with Pandan fragrant, partially submerged in lightly sweet and savoury coconut custard. Uniquely presented inside rectangular boxes crafted from banana leaves, which are carefully folded and secured, it serves not only as a vessel but as a natural infusion of subtle fragrance.
