Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur Celebrates Father’s Day At Lafite

Father’s Day on 15 June 2014 will be bonding time for Dad and son or Dad and daughter in a cooking programme at Lafite organised by Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.

The two-day programme, titled “Dad’s the Way on Father’s Day”, will take place in the hotel kitchen, headed by Executive Chef Rudolf Kunkel.

The first day of the programme will begin with all fathers and children visiting a supermarket in Kuala Lumpur. Led by Chef Kunkel, they will learn how to choose fresh seafood.

After the visit, they will return to Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, where Chef Kunkel and his assistants will teach them how to prepare a Father’s Day lunch, followed by a light meal.

In the morning of Father’s Day, the participants will cook lunch in the hotel kitchen. The children will then serve the four-course lunch to their fathers at Lafite, joined by other members of their family.

After lunch, there will be a graduation ceremony for the participants, who will receive certificates from Chef Kunkel and pose for a group picture.

Each participant will pay a fee of MYR250 nett for the cooking class and lunch at Lafite. The price also includes a chef’s jacket, apron, chef’s hat and certificate.

Families of the participating father and child will have to book a table for a minimum four persons (including the father and child) at Lafite to enjoy the four-course lunch at MYR150 nett per person.

As the programme involves actual cooking experience in the hotel kitchen, the minimum age limit for the participants has been set at six years and above. The cooking class will be limited to 30 participants.

The closing date for the “Dad’s the way on Father’s Day” programme is 2 June 2014. For enquiries and reservations, please call (6 03) 2074 3586 or email
