Cooking videos

I have come out with 80 cooking videos  a few years ago only for my understanding students, mostly short and easy to follow methods tutorials. For some of you who loves our Malaysian recipes, here are step by step tutorial cooking videos for you.

I started teaching cooking class years ago and we have thousands of people coming to the class. There are quite a handful who returns year after year to Penang,  to enjoy our cooking class, different kinds of cuisine available in Penang, Malaysia..

We have the Chinese, Malay, Nyonya, Indian, Indian Muslim and Eurasian cuisine. Our food is authentic in terms of ingredients used.

Most Chinese food has cooking wine, garlic and ginger thrown in. The Malay food has mostly fresh red chillies, fresh turmeric, galangal and onions. The Indians and Indian Muslims food cannot do without curry powders and dried spices. The Nyonyas and Eurasian food contains a bit of fusion from Chinese, Malay and Indians.

Because I am a Nyonya and have been eating thiese dishes since i am young, it is easier for me to come out with our cuisine and show you short videos of some really lovely dishes, 1 pot meals, drinks and desserts.

So we run them in 10 videos per series. You get to observe how to prepare spice paste for blending and cooking. If you have not seen certain herbs and spices, this is one videos that shows you all. I will list of the types of dishes in these videos. You can check them out in each series which is available following the links.

  1. Hello Pearl

    Thank you for the free YouTube video! During this world crisis it’s challenging to find the right ingredients in the stores so if you can keep your recipes very simple it would really help all of us who follow you.

    I would have loved to have paid for your other videos however like many I no longer have work at present and have to be very careful in the way I shop.

    From all one who follows you and has attended your cookery class nearly 4 years ago at your home – please keep sharing your free YouTube tutorials and keep us inspired in such a world wide national crisis.

    My prayers are with you and Malaysia – stay home and stay safe.
