ABC Studio’s Trial Lesson Menu

**Seasonal Trial, from 3 – 31 March only**
Takoyaki Style bread with béchamel sauce, teriyaki sauce and bacon bits
This huge takoyaki is actually a bread! I think the technique of wrapping enclosed filling would be similar to ‘baked meat curry’ (regular lesson). This bread has béchamel sauce and bacon bits, and is drizzled with teriyaki sauce that will be made from scratch. Super worth learning if you ask me. This bread is gonna be popular with kids.

I’m a ABC studio member, email me at yifong.tan@gmail.com to attend trial lessons at $28/pax. I only get to attend the trial class if someone goes with me, while you get to enjoy member referral discount, it’s a win-win situation. Let’s bake together! 🙂

My daughter and I rolled out the gingerbread flavoured dough, cut out shapes using the cookie cutter, and decorated the Christmas-themed cookies using icing and a variety of sugar sprinkles.

Few weeks before Christmas, I spotted this gingerbread man parent-child baking lesson at Redman, The Star Vista for $65 nett.

Got a Free Lesson in ABC Cooking Studio (KL).


Yums! Made adorably round temari sushi in KL. The icing on the cake is that the lesson was… free (using my ABC passport)

Since I was going to be in KL in July, I took the chance to check out ABC Cooking Studio Malaysia‘s locations and menus available. My ABC passport is still valid, hence I try to redeem a free lesson whenever I’m in one of the 8 countries where they are at.

There are currently 2 studios in Malaysia and both are in Kuala Lumpur – in Pavilion Elite shopping mall and Gardens Mall.

Photo Spam: My Lessons at ABC Cooking Studio


World Cuisine (March): Popular Ethnic Thai Meal
This menu features Pad Gaprao, Tom Kha Gai and Vietnamese fried spring roll

My 12th cooking lesson! I have some cooking tickets (lucky me!) hence I can still attend cooking classes 😀

Despite basil pork being one of the iconic traditional Thai dishes, I have always avoided it. I never liked the basil taste/smell. It is too strong for me. 

Picked this menu mostly for my husband, who came over to have lunch with me.

The spring roll was fun to wrap and yummy too. My husband and I are not fan of the soup though, both of us prefer green curry and tom yum soup over this.

The instructor shared that typically, holy basil is used. As it is stronger in flavour and also harder to buy, the studio has used sweet basil instead. I like this version better.
