Hi, i'm Teena, i would like to share with you my passion for delicious home cooking and teach you simple Malaysian style dishes. My passion has developed from helping and learning to cook with my mother. I love sharing my knowledge with other people from around the world and also learning from others. I like to know what i am eating, so by preparing your own food, it is healthy and fun. Cooking for others and seeing how they enjoy devouring my food is an awesome feeling. I cook with love just like our mothers do. Food is life. Food brings people and the world together.

Jom masak & makan !!!

It was a lovely evening learning how to cook with Teena, the dish tasted fantastic and we also got to make our own Sambal from scratch! It was great meeting other travellers as well... would definitely come back for another class next time we are here in Malacca. Thank you!

The cooking class was a lot of fun and a great experience. It was more so a cooking demonstration as most of the prep work and cooking was done by Teena, however it was a very pleasant evening and learned how to make a delicious curry

As a cooking demonstration of traditional Malaysian cooking it was good with a variety of dishes prepared and eaten. We were expecting more participation as we have experienced in the past on other cooking experiences and so were left disappointed that we were only able to perform mundane tasks.
