Ann's Chinese Kitchen

Simple recipes, simple ingredients...

Come to my home kitchen in Newport, South Wales and learn from a Malaysian Chinese cook how to make tasty, authentic Chinese food.

Cookery classes run for groups of up to 6 people, couples or individual tuition.

I currently offer cookery classes that cover three different Menus. Each session lasts three hours and includes time at the end of the class for sampling the food and Q&A. If there is food any left over you may take some home!

Bookings are now being taken for cookery classes on these dates, all running from 10am to 1pm:

See below for more information about each Menu and how to book, and take a look at the picture gallery for some mouth-watering pictures of some of my dishes.

I'm excited to have been Chef Of The Month in the March issue of Voice magazine... you can read the story here.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Menu 1

  • Aromatic Chicken with pancake and BBQ sauce
  • Pan Fried Pork Dumplings
  • Stir Fried Chicken Noodles

One of my favourite dinner party foods, minimum effort with maximum satisfaction and guests can have some D.I.Y. fun! The chicken is marinated with herbs to keep it moist and give a great aroma and is accompanied with homemade BBQ sauce, cucumber and spring onion wrapped in a slice of pancake.

While the chicken is roasting in the oven, we will be preparing our famous Pork Dumplings. You will get your hands dirty making the dumpling dough, fill and shaping them to individual bite size before pan frying them, incredibly moreish, especially when dipped into your own freshly made chilli sauce.

The last dish is Stir Fried Chicken Noodles, where you will learn to practice your wok skills.

Menu 2

  • Crispy Spring Roll
  • Sweet and Sour Chicken
  • Egg Fried Rice

In this session, you will learn to prepare the individual ingredients that go inside the spring roll, then fill and wrap using the delicate spring roll sheet. This is a very satisfying dish for any occasion and you will also prepare chilli dipping sauce to accompany it.

Next, the classic Sweet and Sour Chicken, where you will learn to marinate the meat and make the famous finger licking good sweet and sour sauce!

Lastly, we can’t finish without Egg Fried Rice, where you will learn to cook the rice from the start before practicing your wok skills.

Menu 3 - Malaysian Street Food

  • Chicken and Beef Satay
  • Dhal Curry with Paratha Bread
  • Won Ton Noodles
