Awards and Reviews

Great Taste Awards 2021

Here are some of the wonderful things the Guild of Fine Food’s judges said about my original pandan kaya when awarding it three stars:

“Irresistibly aromatic with nutty notes to the fore, this delightfully textured curd, which melts away while coating the palate silkenly, continues to intrigue as it evolves on the palate. Notes of pandan, coconut and toasted nuts vie for attention, with sweetness at perfect level. Uncloying on the finish, with delightful aromatics persisting.”


“What a delicious product! Surprising, sweet, with amazing mouthfeel, delicate coconut aroma and taste, stunning colour. We can see how versatile this product could be, from spreading over toast, to pouring over ice cream or even using in savoury sauces. An absolute gem of a spread.”


“This is a beautiful curd. The flavours are exquisite. A beautiful colour, perfect texture. It would be really hard to beat this.”

Awarded to my Gula Melaka Kaya

Proving we’re not just a one-horse stable, my gula melaka kaya was also awarded a Fine Food Digest Editors’ Choice accolade as part of the Fine Food Show North, held in Harrogate in October 2021 and organised by the Guild of Fine Food

What our customers say…

It’s not just judges who love it

“Madam Chang’s Kaya was seriously the best kaya I ever had in my life. The pandan aroma when I opened the bottle and the silky smooth texture of the spread was heavenly!”
– Rosie

“I have tried the kaya from 4 different sellers and yours is by far the best and most authentic. Exactly like how I remember kaya should look, smell and taste!”
– Celeste

They are absolutely delicious. Had them with toast for breakfast this morning. It really is as good as it tastes back home! Keep up the tradition and hope more people get to taste your handiwork.”
– Thomas

“Thought I’d let you know I’ve just opened a jar and tried your kaya… it’s amazing! Reminds me of the one my nan used to make! I’m trying my best not to just spoon it out the jar!”

– Sarah
