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).

So join in our Nyonya Kueh appreciation workshop, and learn to make the traditional 9-layer Nonya Kueh and Ondeh Ondeh! The 9 layer Nonya Kueh is made of 9 different coloured layers of Kueh whilst the Ondeh Ondeh is the Peranakan’s twist on the traditional Chinese dessert of “Tang Yuan”, made colder and coated with fresh coconut flakes!

Blackout Dates due to festival season: Dec-Feb and May-June.
