Tag Archives: Japanese Soft Bread Class

April 2018 Cooking and Baking Class

I started the month with a Kuih Class. Kuih (Pronouced Kway) are local sweet or savory delights Malaysians and Singaporeans have for breakfast or tea.  Kuih is a delicacy that goes back to hundreds of years where it was deftly prepared by Nonya Ladies.  Now almost every race had their own variation of Nonya Kuih.  There are not many good Kuih Sellers around, so it is something we need to preserve.

So from this month onwards I will hold a Kuih Class every month featuring different Kuihs from the Nonya People as well as Malay Kuih.  This years  endeavor is called……. My Kuih Quest!
