Apa khabar!

The “Peranakan”, also known as “Baba Nyonya” and “Straits Chinese”, are descendants of mainly Hokkien Chinese traders from Fujian Province who settled, as early as the 15th century, along the spice trade route on the Malay Peninsula (Straits of Malacca) and the coastal areas of Java and Sumatra. They married into local Southeast Asian communities, as Chinese women were then not legally able to leave China.

The term “Nyonya” (pronounced “non-ya”) is an honorific for Straits Chinese women (the men are known as “Baba”).  It also refers to the cuisine of the Peranakan, found only in Southeast Asia. In Malaysia, one can only enjoy authentic dishes in Penang and Malacca. Literally a melting pot of many cultures, Nyonya cuisine is now acknowledged as one of the earliest examples of fusion food.

When:  Thursday, September 28th, starting at 9.30am till about 1.00pm thereabouts

Where:  Faeimm’s home in Nußloch (address will be provided to those attending)

What:  We’re having a “Mee Nyonya” party!  “Mee Nyonya” is a dish comprising Chinese yellow noodles in a thick, spicy gravy, originally peddled by Indian-Muslim migrants.   Reflecting the multicultural mix of Malaysia, this Nyonya adaptation uses spices from the Malay Peninsula and India.

As we are a big group, this session will be set up as a cooking demonstration – preparations will need to start the day before, but we can work on the finishing touches together.  The ticket price per person will be advised once we determine the amount of ingredients to be imported from Malaysia.

Due to seating constraints, we can accommodate only 14 participants.

Terima kasih!

Faeimm Tang
