Our driver will pick you up from your hotel along with a local family member to check out the “TAMU” or local market which is the beginning of the Cooking Class Kota Kinabalu, here you will learn how the locals buy their food. You’ll see produce, meats, seafood and fruits all grown locally for local consumption. After the market we will send you to “Momma’s House” in one of the oldest local villages in the Penampang area to start the Cooking Class Kota Kinabalu, just like you see in the pictures.

Here you will be treated like family and taught the secret family recipes to cook like a local Sabahan. Let’s eat!
