YORK, England, April 8, 2011 - Park Inn Hotels recently hosted an evening of Malaysian food and dancing
at the Park Inn in central York to celebrate Malaysian Kitchen, a promotional
campaign funded by the Malaysian government to promote indigenous food and
produce in the UK, as well as Malaysian restaurants.

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 their menus.

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.
