About the workshop

The term Peranakan generally refers to people of mixed Chinese and Malay/Indonesian heritage; coined after a Malay term meaning “person born here and descended from elsewhere.” 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 workshop, you will learn why Nyonya Kueh and Ondeh Ondeh are culinary items that are a combination of different Nanyang cultures - a melting pot of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Western/European influences, and Peranakan heritage. Learn the origins and influences of these beloved dishes as well as why they have evolved into the delicious desserts they are today!

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