I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun I had at the Swedecook cooking class, despite not being able to cook :D
Pei Chyi and I attended the class last Thursday along with other IKEA Malaysia brand ambassadors, which was held at at19Culinary studio in Damansara Heights. Our instructor was Chef Khai, an award winning chef and lecturer at Taylors School of Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts.
On the menu for the day was…
Janson’s Temptations – a traditional Swedish casarole
Poached Salmon with dill and lemon sauce
Crepes with honeyed apples
Chef Khai put everyone at ease with his down to earth demeanor and got everyone (including the men) interested in the recipes, ingredients and cooking techniques. Despite his handicap of not being a Swede, his years of cooking in restaurants and hotels around the region has given him the experience to instruct our Swedish cooking lesson very well.
If you’re the type of person who enjoys spending time in the kitchen, watching Asian Food Channel and reading recipe books you’ll definitely enjoy this class. And even if you’re like me (who’s culinary skills is limited to making a mean maggi goreng), hanging out with friends who share your interests is a pretty fun experience too.
The Swedecook class is a preview of the prize that you might win if you take part in IKEA Malaysia’s Pretty Smart Kitchen Facebook contest. All you have to do to enter is to email a picture of your fun kitchen moments to their Facebook team. Super easy, so quick go join the contest! Contest ends next
