About the workshop

What does Peranakan mean? The term Peranakan generally refers to people of mixed Chinese and Malay/Indonesian heritage. Many Peranakans trace their origins to 15th-century Malacca where their ancestors were thought to be Chinese traders who married local women. Peranakan males are known as babas while the females are known as nyonyas (or nyonyas).

In this private boutique tour, learn about Peranakan culture whilst sampling some of Peranakan culture's most classic food dishes and desserts.
