Join Masterchef’s Billy Law on an exclusive 9-day Culinary Tour in Malaysia – he will share his personal journey in food, love and family in the country where he grew up.
If I have to describe my year 2011, these are the words I can think of – random, surreal, spontaneous, hectic, life changing. Last year has been kind to me but I am looking forward to an even more exciting and delicious new year! While I am still frantically writing recipes, cooking and testing, trying to meet the deadline for my upcoming cookbook, I have also been working very closely with my personal travel agent for the last few months and finally we’ve designed an amazing culinary tour that we both very happy with and here it is – grab your passport and come on a 9-day Culinary Tour in Malaysia with me!
I have spent quite some time designing and planning this culinary tour to make sure I am 110% happy with it. As I think it is quite personal for me to show you the country that I grew up in the way I see it. It is almost like flipping through my old diary to rediscover my childhood, my home country, places that I visited and the food I ate. But most importantly, I am rediscovering this truly unique experience together with you.
Within the 9 days, we will explore the superb multi-cultural Malay, Chinese, Indian and Nyonya cuisines – from the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur, to the charming historical town of Melaka, and the foodie’s paradise of Penang. The trip is jam packed with private food tours, hands-on cooking classes and a smidgen of incredible sightseeing. On top of all that, I have also arranged an exclusive Nyonya cuisine cooking demonstration and dinner with the affable Malaysian celebrity chef Florence Tan. And of course, whoever interested in my food photography, I am ready to share my advice and you are more than welcome to pick my brains along the tour.
Whoever knows me would know I’m a pretty laid back spontanious kind of guy. I would like to keep this tour as casual, relax and intimate as possible. And I am not going to lie, it is very difficult to keep it cost effective by running a small tour group. Instead of having a tour bus of 20 to 40 odd people, I have to put a cap on and there will be no more than 14 people in the group. Oh, I’ve also scheduled this tour to be around Easter break, perfect timing for a holiday, don’t you think?
I have created a microsite with all the information you need to know about this culinary tour. Please feel free to contact my personal travel agent, Linda Williams at TravelManagers if you would like to make a booking or have any inquiries. You may also leave a comment here and I will get back to you with an answer as soon as possible.
I’ll see you in Malaysia in 3 months time. Pack nothing, but an empty stomach!
