Visitors to BookFest@Malaysia 2014 next week will get to learn from master chefs during Cook-Out Day.

Does good food and do good books excite you? Then get ready to go “nom nom” over a double treat of a gastronomic feast at a literary fest. This year’s BookFest@Malaysia, a nine-day festival that opens today at the KL Convention Centre, will host a Cook-Out Day among its events on Tuesday July 29.

The day-long cookbook affair (11AM-8:45PM) will include demos by celebrated chefs from around Asia and a “cooking marathon” to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Popular Book Co (M) Sdn Bhd, the BookFest organiser. Cook-Out Day happens at the English Pavilion in KL Convention Centre's Hall 5.

Among the culinary tomes published by Popular is One Day, One Dish: 365 Selected Home-Cooked Recipes book – and four chefs featured in the book will demonstrate two recipes each at the event. In total, visitors will see eight hours of cooking at the festival! 

Sharing their skills with Cook-Out Day visitors at BookFest@ Malaysia on July 29 are chefs (clockwise from top left) Ricky Ng, Korn, Eric Teoh and KS Lee.
