Come into Ruqxana's, The Food Sorceress, home kitchen! You’re invited to her home to learn how to cook popular Asian and Singaporean cuisine. From wannabe chefs to Cordon Bleu artistes, she has the class for you. The hands-on cooking class is followed by a sit-down meal and pleasant conversation.

    Cool neighborhood, amazing teacher, fantastic local food
    A short cab ride away from the main downtown district, Ruqxana's home is a beautiful, peaceful place to learn to cook some authentic dishes. Ruqxana is a fantastic teacher, and I learned several new techniques specific to the cuisine of the region. Cooking was fun, the food was delicious, and I can't wait to recreate these recipes at home in New York! 10/10 would recommend, especially for the opportunity to get away from MBS and see what Singapore is all about.

    A wonderful cookery class and shared lunch in a lovely authentic setting
    Thank you Cookery Magic for another wonderful and fun 3 hours learning to cook delicious Thai dishes. Thanks to Ruqxana’s expert guidance, handy tips, very kind and patient encouragement …I feel confident I can follow the recipe and replicate all three really yummy dishes when I return home to the UK. The class was a lovely way to spend three hours. I learnt a bit about local culture and really enjoyed the shared lunch with fellow classmates where we polished off the delicious dishes we had cooked.

    Best cooking class in Singapore!
    Heading back to Singapore this year and will be booking another cooking class at cookery magic with Ruqxana. It's one of my highlights in Singapore. The way Ruqxana shows you how make the dishes translates to home cooking so well. So many of our go-to dinners are the meals we learned in this amazing cooking class! Thank you, Ruqxana!

    Best choice!
    I attend Ruqxana’s cooking classes every time I visit Singapore. I am in love with the ambiance of the beautiful house and garden, craving the authentic and delicious meals, every time looking forward to meeting this amazing woman (and her friendly cats)! This time a friend of mine had a birthday party at Cookery magic. It was a wonderful evening! Great food and a really gorgeous birthday cake! Cookery magic would be the best chioce if you are in love with Asian food and look for an authentic experience in cooking! Ruqxana is a culinary encyclopedia, her instructions are simple and easy to follow and even if you haven’t ever cooked anything different from boiled eggs, you will manage to prepare few delicious dishes at a time. And in addition, the food is served in hand made ceramics created by Ruqxana! She is a pottery artist as well. You can see her atelier with a real pottery wheel in the garden!

    A wonderful cooking experience in a home
    A lovely experience cooking and eating in the home of Ruqxana. She is an amazing teacher - vibrant, funny and very experienced. She explains flavors of every ingredient and shows us how it changes the taste of the dish. It was very pleasant and satisfying to relax and eat the meal we cooked in her lovely garden.

    We liked the experience a lot! ✨✨
    Katia and I enjoyed the experience thoroughly, thank you very much, Roxanna! ✨🙏🏻 We learned so many new things about the south east Asian cuisine and, - hands down - the beef randang 🥘 we made is the best we’ve ever had! We are definitely going to make it again! ✨🙌

    A very fun experience at Cookery Magic!
    We had a great time at Cookery Magic which is truly a hidden gem! We arrived at the cooking venue, just realising it’s chef Ruqxana’s beautifully decorated home that feels like a resort villa. We love the farm-to-table concept where some of the herbs were harvested from her garden. We had a wonderful time learning the cooking tips and techniques! More importantly, it was FUN!

    Cosy cooking class
    Ruqxana was an amazing host and teacher. My partner and I attended the Malay cooking class. It was our first time learning about Malay dishes such as beef rendang and sayur lodeh. The lesson is very hands-on, conducted in an outdoor kitchen. It was an afternoon well-spent with new knowledge, good food and friendly company. I hope to attend another of her classes again. Highly recommended - 10 gold stars.

We spent a wonderful day cooking popular Singaporean dishes in a magical, authentic local home. It was an unforgettable experience. We were there with another friend couple and we have lots of fun exploring the local spices, finding out where to buy them, how to combine them. We would love to go again.

We‘ve learnt tons about SG‘s (food) culture, the typical Southeast Asian Herbs and Spices (most picked freshly from the garden) all whilst cooking an authentic and delicious Beef Rendang, Sayur Lodeh, Sambal and Serunding in Ruqxana‘s wonderful openair kitchen in her stunning house and home.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed Ruqxana‘s cooking class, during which she shared recipes from her family and friends as well as her insightful tips and „secret sauce“/tricks. We left inspired and will definitely recreate some of the dishes we cooked at home!
A must-do if you are a foodie, curious about Southeast Asian cuisine or are looking for an authentic local experience.
