About the Chef

Growing up in Penang, Wanitha moved to Australia in 1982. She learned the art of cooking from her father, who he was the Head Chef of the Kedah Royal Family in Malaysia. Wanitha later started her own restaurant and cooking school. She is a real goddess of flavours and spice and with her engaging personality, her positive energy and her incredible knowledge of food she will show you the secrets of asian cooking. As Wanitha says, “Food is togetherness, creating deep connections between people, place and soil, linking the globe across time and culture. Cooking is history. Every dish tells a story.”

Course testimonials:

  • Kat said: I did enjoy the cooking class overall, however I felt the recipes were very basic. I did not expect to have pre bought wonton and dumpling skins. It felt a little like following a recipe with great commentary. The food was yum and Wanita was amazing, passionate and funny. In my opinion i think we could have cooked less dishes and payed more attention to the details - ie - making things from scratch.
