Here’s what they have to say about their experience!
A gem of a cooking experience
“We signed up for an Indian meal class: prata, fish curry and dhal. Class were taught at her quaint house. It was hands-on so we all had a go at to preparing the meals. Easy to follow instructions by Ruqxana. We all had our cooked meals for lunch. All in all, a well-spent 4 hours. Cookery Magic has many different culinary recipes to learn so you have lots of choices, it was hard to just choose one. Highly recommended.”
A unique cooking class
“I’m a cooking lover and I’ve already done many other classes before. But when my friend and I came at the Ruqxana’s cozy home we had a totally different experience: the open kitchen, the local ingredients (mostly from her garden!), the original dishes, and first of all the beautiful person who Ruqxana is, created a magic atmosphere where we could really experience the pleasure of cooking together in a small group (we were 12 persons) and to taste new dishes. Ruqxana is a very friendly person, incredible in her kitchen’s world and very helpful (she suggest me where to find some particular ingredients). I really recommend to spend some hours in this peaceful home, to learn more about local cuisine and about the wish of share with others ;-)”
Excellent authentic cooking that’s so delicious!
“Ruqxana is such a wonderful passionate lady who’s so talented at what she does! Her emphasis on technique, getting the right and freshest of ingredients coupled with how passionate she is about cooking truly inspires and makes it all a very valuable yet fun learning experience! Her recipes are TDF (to die for). So so yummy and whacked with wholesome flavours! I would love to come back again to learn from her.”
“Perhaps the best classes of all are offered by Cookery Magic, run by the wonderful Ruqxana, who teaches a range of popular Indian, Malay, Indonesian, Chinese and Singaporean classics to small groups in her home, or on field trips.”
