  • I’ve taken several cooking classes throughout Asia from cooking schools to private classes like this. I have to say that this was my favorite private class by a wide margin. The common problem with private classes is that they lack the preparation and available course materials that larger schools offer. Chef Samuel does an EXCELLENT job of both by providing clear recipes and instructions. In addition he provides excellent personal instruction in his comfortable home. I really can’t heap enough praise on him and the professionalism he brings to his work. If I’m back in KL with some free time, I would absolutely book another class with a different menu. Signed a hard to satisfy but very satisfied customer JJ
  • Unique cooking experience with a personal touch. Chef Samuel generously shared the finer points of cooking local Penang delicacies which was both informative and interesting. Pick-up and drop-off at our hotel was very convenient for us. We will definitely recommend this cooking class to anyone who wants to learn and taste authentic local cuisines.
  • This was the best market tour and cooking class we’ve done in Asia and having Samuel pick us up and deliver us home made the whole experience super easy and relaxed. We had lots of practice making roti and will definitely try it and the curry and Dahl recipes when we get home. Samuel’s knowledge and passion for food shines through and he’s a great teacher too. Come with an empty stomach!
  • My wife loves to take a cooking class whenever we travel, so of course we had to take a class in the foodie capital that is Penang. Normally when I book, I choose based on quantity of reviews, and quality of what the reviews say. Since Chef Samuel is starting his new cooking class, there weren’t a ton of reviews to go by. I could tell from what the reviews said, plus the vibe Samuel portrayed in his photos and website, that it would be a special experience. My wife and I were wholeheartedly thrilled with our entire experience with Cooking with Chef Samuel. I can honestly say it was the best decision, and if you’re looking for a cooking class in Penang, do not hesitate in booking with Chef Samuel. He picked us up promptly from our hotel, and took us to a wet market. This was super cool, as we were the only tourists there and it was great seeing a local, lively market. Samuel is extremely kind, genuine, and a great teacher. This class was very hands on (not just watching him cook, and you chop a few veggies)— you prep the food, you watch him cook his portion so you learn, and then each person cooks their own portion based on how Chef Samuel did his...all while he’s watching and guiding you. I could go on and on about how great this experience was, but for the sake of writing too long of a review that people won’t finish reading, I will stop. Definitely book Chef Samuel!
  • This experience was perfect! It was better than we had imagined :) super nice people and super nice food. I would recommend it to everyone!
