We spend an evening cooking with Jem and family. They were very hospitable and we learnt some amazing dishes.
The nasi lemak and accompaniments were great.
The best cooking experience we have had.

Jen's Homegrown Cooking Academy Review:

Coming from Australia to KL you soon realize (after tasting the local cuisine) that there is a great deal to learn about the art of cooking. So when my brother and I were presented with the opportunity to learn a traditional Malaysian dish we were rather excited. The dish my brother and I were to cook was Nasi Lemak, which we learnt meant (in the most literal terms) "Rice" & "Fat". So a rich tasting rice dish was in order (just my kind of dish). 

The cooking process was unique, a blend of generic culinary lessons with a homely touch. Mommy, Daddy and Daughter all had their turn in teaching the inexperienced Aussies how to get through each phase of the process. Very much like the chapters in a book each person had a different side dish to teach. Nasi Lemak had its rice, its meats and then the various side dishes. One of the greatest parts of the lesson was learning the unique ways to make all the dishes. From the coconut rice to the turmeric chicken, there are techniques you learn that will stick with me for a very long time.

I would recommend anyone to have lessons and meals from Jen (and company) as the food and experiences I had with them have been some of the most profound in my life. The homely feel of the class and area are a great environment for fun and learning (and very very full tummies).

So if you have an oppurtunity to learn from Jen's Homegrown Cooking Academy don't pass it up. Cause you won't regret it, and if you are like me (a burden on the culinary front at home) your family and partner won't regret it either.
