The event at the prestigious York hotel was
organised by Malaysian-born York chef Jennie Cook, who has held similar events in
other cities around the country in recent months and is planning a series of videos,
to be released on Youtube, on Malaysian cuisine.
VIP guests on the night were treated to a three-course meal and traditional
Malaysian entertainment courtesy of dancers from London and Bradford. The menu
comprised of satay chicken, beef rendang and a Malaysian take on sago pudding.
Jennie Cook chose the dishes for the evening because she felt that they were typical
of the food she enjoyed during her childhood in Malaysia.
Jennie said: "They were typical Malaysian dishes. They are our signature dishes and
I wanted to put these three popular ones into one menu." Commenting on the success
of the evening, Jennie added, "I think it went really well, a lot of people told me
they had a good time. A lot of people had not tried Malaysian food before and they
thought it was really good."
Jennie's menu proved so popular that the Park Inn Hotel has decided to add her
dishes to its specials menu - one of the aims of the Malaysian Kitchen campaign is
to encourage hotels and restaurants to put at least one or two Malaysian dishes on
His Excellency Datuk Zakaria Sulong, The Malaysian High Commissioner to Britain was
also in attendance at the Park Inn Hotel in York for the event, following other
engagements promoting Malaysian Kitchen Week, which His Excellency launched in
September in Selfridges of London.
