The Cook with Aunty series of workshops is part of Butterkicap's iniative to save Malaysian Heritage recipes by sharing knowledge and connecting people.
We'll meet at Aunty's family home or at a kebun (little orchard) in the Klang Valley. Begin with homemade tea or coffee before proceeding into her kitchen. This is where you will inherit two to five of her recipes through a hands-on cooking experience. We will end the session with a delicious homecooked feast.
You will cook with ingredients bought fresh from the market and a Malay lunch experience, including coffee and tea. Aunty will also share her kampung stories where she cooked alongside her mother.

Aunty welcomes all foodies, explorers, aspiring cooks or simply those just looking to make new friends.
Home-cook extraordinaire, Aunty Zah exudes warmth and comfort. Trained the old-fashioned way - by playing in her mother’s kitchen and learning from friends and family willing to share their recipes - she loves nothing more than spreading her knowledge of cooking to others so that they may carry on the tradition of good home cooking.
Being the wife of a diplomat, cooking and teaching others about Malaysia has become second nature. After all, what better way to celebrate Malaysia than through our food! She has entertained and cooked for foreign dignitaries and hosted events that bring a little bit of home to hundreds of Malaysians living overseas. With decades worth of cooking experience under her belt, you can be assured of learning from someone with stories to tell and knowledge to impart.
