Dining With The Queens: Legumes “Nyonya” Mother’s Day Buffet, A Treat Fit For A Queen

Malaysia's renowned catering brand Legumes set the scene for a spectacular Mother’s Day celebration by hosting a dazzling preview event. Held at the Fun Fun Event Space in Puchong, the luncheon wowed attendees with exquisite culinary creations and lively entertainment. This event served as an enticing preview for "Dining With The Queens," an upcoming three-day buffet dinner dedicated to honoring mothers.

The highlight of the preview was the engaging presentations by Legumes CEO and co-founder Ms. Siow Miqi and Sales Director Mr. Earon Teh. Ms. Miqi shared the story of Legumes’ history and its evolution into a renowned catering brand. She also spoke about the inspiration behind this year’s Mother’s Day buffet event.

Mr. Earon Teh then outlined Legumes’ current range of services and upcoming projects. He detailed plans to cater to universities and local institutions, and introduced a new range of Legumes "Mini Buffet" offerings designed for smaller, more casual, and private functions. Additionally, he unveiled the brand’s new logo and brand assets, which will reflect their expanding ventures.

Enhancing the celebration were cooking demonstrations led by COO and co-founder Mr. Kenneth Chua Wei Xian and Legumes' Junior Sous Chef Nur Aufa Athiya Binti Othman, showcasing the company’s diverse range of food products. 

Chef Aufa crafted a grazing box ideal for intimate gatherings, while Kenneth presented the beloved local dish Kong Pao Chicken in Yam Basket, with assistance from Demi Chef James Ng Wen Jia. These sessions not only showcased their culinary prowess but also underscored the quality and innovation that Legumes consistently delivers.

The chef and the team also prepared a variety of delicious dishes to be served at the event, such as:

Nyonya Herb Rice

My fav section! The dessert!

Black Glutinuos Longan Panna Cotta! 

Very delicious and unique, I've never had anything like this before. Although panna cotta is a Western dessert, incorporating local ingredients like longan and black glutinous rice transforms it into a fusion dish that is very creamy, sweet, and appetizing.

Nyonya kuih was equally good too! The right taste and texture!

The preview event wasn't solely focused on food; it also featured a showcase of "drop-off catering" services along with a thematic buffet titled "Moonlight Oriental." Additionally, Legumes offers other thematic buffets such as "Great Gatsby" and "Sunshine," providing a diverse array of options to suit various preferences and occasions.

The buffet line was meticulously organized, radiating an aura of luxury, elegance, and charm down to the finest detail.

Guests were delighted to engage in a variety of activities, from crafting DIY flower baskets for mom to playing a themed word search game centered around the Mother’s Day celebration. 

My grazing box! Love this session, so fun to do this arrangement!

Adding to the fun, a photobooth was available for guests to capture memorable moments, while a social media contest encouraged attendees to share their event photos for a chance to win exciting prizes.

Love the Nyonya inspired decors!

I adore the presentation at the Moonlight Oriental Showcase.

Several fortunate guests had the opportunity to take home prizes, including a vegetable box hamper presented in a stunning LEGUMES cooler bag. Additionally, three lucky winners were bestowed with tickets for a three-person Dining With The Queens Mother’s Day Dinner buffet experience.

It seems I was incredibly lucky that day to win the Grand Prize Dining With The Queens Mother’s Day Dinner buffet experience.Unfortunately, as I was heading back to Johor to celebrate Mother's Day with my mom, I decided to pass on the opportunity to my girlfriend Choy Peng to enjoy the experience on my behalf.

All the lucky winners!

Thank you Legumes Catering for your generosity!
