Terengganu is a state rich in tradition and culture, with local customs that are unique and jealously guarded by its people. There are many ways to experience the beauty of Terengganu, from relaxing on its long, sandy beaches, snorkeling or scuba diving at it many islands to appreciate its amazing underwater world to wandering through the local bazaars to admire the intricate designs of its batik. One of the best ways to truly appreciate Terengganu is to stay in one of its traditional villages and learn how to prepare and cook its authentic local cuisines that are unique to the state.
What better way to learn how to cook Terengganu’s food than from the locals themselves. Don’t expect Michelin stars chef in their white, pointy hats. What you would receive is knowledge from those who have been cooking these dishes from years and probably learn the secrets from their mothers or grandmothers. You won’t be seeing any weighing machine or any kind of measurements as these cooks know their stuff by heart. You would also get the chance to go to the local market and choose the freshest ingredients yourself. It’s going to be hot and sweaty but all should be forgotten once you taste your own home-cooked Terengganu delicacies.
