Eid Mubarak 2020

Today, in Malaysia, Muslims are celebrating the Eid, which marks the end of the Ramadan month. The day that starts the meeting of relatives from far and family members, old friends and colleagues.

However, due to the new norm set for Covid 19 crisis, that has affected Malaysia as well, the celebration of Eid is done with limitations.
Today, we are free to travel to visit our families living near us. Intrastate travel is allowed today for Eid celebration. Everyone should adhere to the new norms such as the use of face cover,  maintain a distance of 1 meter from each other, wash hands often. No shaking hands, no kissing, no touching, no close conversation allowed. Preferably to take care of our elders and children as they seem more vulnerable to the Covid 19. 
All interstate travel are forbidden, unless you have reasons and it is a must trip. Today, we visited my father and mother in law, which is around 5 km away.  From my observation, small visits may be safe. However, if you have chil…

My first experience in a Malay cooking class: the famous Nasi Lemak

Everyone knows: the way to a man's love is through his belly.
Everyone knows: the way to a man's love is through his belly.
As most of the Europeans we believe with the saying that the way to a man`s love is through his stomach...and i do believe in it! It`s a great feeling to cook with your own hands and your loves ones to enjoy the food...maybe these days it is more popular to have a maid or just to go eat out...as in Malaysia it is still affordable to eat outside.

Sometimes I too enjoy to eat outside...but not all the times as the food may vary and not according to my taste and when this happens, I always say to my self, "I can cook better...".

As a Romanian, it is shamefully to not knowing how to cook, we enjoy looking at our mom or grandmothers cooking....but not everybody enjoy it due to:
  • Lack of cooking  knowledge or experience
  • Laziness
  • Careers
  • Tiring
  • Pride
I started to cook Malay food referring to Cookbooks and Internet...but i always had in my mind to attend to some professional cooking class...after few searches on Google i found Lazat Cooking Class in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, I was honored to book a menu class and to participate in my first malay cooking class.

The class started around 8:30 am with a morning walk to the wet market, getting familiar with the Malaysian vegetables, spices, fruits and many more...

The cooking class starts at around 10 am, with the traditional nasi lemak (the rice: which is a fragrant rice dish cooked in coconut milk and "pandan" leaf commonly found in Malaysia), Kuih Cara (Savoury Meat Filled Cups), Sambal Tumis Udang (Prawn in Sambal Sauce) and Sago Gula Melaka (Sago Pudding With Palm Sugar).

The class went smoothly, a great atmosphere and kindness from the chefs/trainers...the class conducted was a real cooking class, not just a demo...was really enjoyed grinding the cili, onion, garlic in the traditional mortar, which is known in Malay as the "Lesung Batu"....everybody prepared their own ingredients for the dishes at their respective cooking station.
