Pearly Kee, a true-blue fifth generation Nyonya was schooled in a traditional Nyonya kitchen and teaches what were once closely guarded cooking secrets. From her cooking school in Penang, she’s taught a whole new generation of fans from professional chefs to foodies and amateur enthusiasts.

Her first best-selling title has since been revised to include five new authentic Penang Nyonya recipes. Her Gourmand Award winning cookbook – Pearly’s Nyonya Pantry is also available from Clarity Publishing.
