Begin with pickup at your Penang city or beach hotel, and make the trip to Tanjung Bungah wet market in an air conditioned vehicle. See the fresh vegetables and spices used in Malaysian cooking, and watch a crowd of locals bargaining for groceries and getting breakfast at the market’s colorful hawker stalls.
Continue to Batu Ferringhi to explore the Tropical Spice Garden, where more than 500 species of food plants, spices, and herbs are cultivated in a demonstration garden covering more than 8 acres (3.2 ha.) of a lush, jungle valley. Trails wrap past quiet pavilions, groves of bamboo, and water features—this is the perfect place to see exotic foods from around the world as they’re grown in the wild and on farms.
Meet a local chef in a student kitchen with views of the Straits of Malacca, and cook a series of Malaysian dishes using fresh ingredients. Take advantage of this private class to share your questions about Malaysian food, local produce, and how to reproduce favorite dishes in your home kitchen. After you’ve finished cooking, sit down to a meal of the food you’ve prepared. This tour concludes with return transfer to your Penang hotel.
