Madam Elenor Annie Keun is the daughter of Maurice Maximilian Keun (Afrikaner parentage). She is an Afrikaner-Mixed ancestry who represents her community in Georgetown, Penang in the Little Penang Street Market at Upper Penang Road across the Eastern & Oriental Hotel known as the Garage since 2006. She specializes in European and Asiatic Food, Pastries, and Beverages which she learn since the age of 9 from Elfrida Joseph-Massang (her grandmother of German-Sumatran ancestry) and Beatrice Theresa D’Almeida (her mother of Scottish-French ancestry).

Elenor has participated in the UNESCO World Heritage City for Georgetown Penang since 2007 at the month-long celebrations. She has taken part in the Straits Quay Flea Market and the newly inaugurated Eurasian Fiesta on July 1st 2012. The Eurasian Fiesta was the first of its kind to bring everyone with European and Mixed ancestry; along with folks who lived with, worked, or studied along side with the Eurasians to part take and keep the culture, heritage, and history alive for all to share, enjoy, and appreciate.

The food, pastries, and beverages which Elenor provide during her sales are Devil Curry, Nasi Lemak, Lemongrass Rice, Tomato Rice, Corn Beef Stew, Chicken Curry, Roast Beef, Grilled Lamb, Baked Salmon, Chicken Pie, Shepard’s Pie, Beef Puff, Sugee Cake, Cheese Cake, Pineapple Puff, Chicken Curry Puff, Lemonade, Pineapple Juice, and many more.

The Devil Curry known as Devilled Curry to others is a recipe derived from the Austro-Hungarian recipe name as Goulash. The Goulash is known to be hot and spicy stew which overtime in Asia turn into a devilish curry filled with chilies, peppers, and spices that burns one’s senses to dust!  The numerous recipes are a fusion of East and West which brings the best of both worlds for all to enjoy. The curries are a blend of Indian, Indochina, and the Indonesian archipelago traditional recipes with a strong central and southern (Balkans) European foundation. The stir fried food is a blend of Chinese and Japanese recipes with the variety of vegetables from around the globe.

 Elenor overtime has used her traditional base and fuse with other recipes to create new recipes or update or a new take on old ones. Her ideas come from her time and experience in traveling to different places around the globe brings new ideas and demonstrate that food can be improved and fuse for the betterment of one’s health and inspires new concepts via creative instinct. Plus these demonstrate to Elenor’s Afrikaner roots in adaptability, survivability, and eagerness to learn new ideas.

After all, Elenor believe that food is an essential part of life and taking great care in its preparation will bring great happiness, health, and wealth for a lifetime and especially to those around you. Elenor states ‘Recipes do not die or fade over time, it just evolve to its environment, culture, and ingredients availability which we should apply to everyday life by learning to be open in accepting new challenges in life in order to survive and prosper in our ever-changing world.’

 Elenor’s positive outlook brings a positive attitude and an excellent outcome in any undertaking she as a Food & Beverage Entrepreneur whether it is in the kitchen or in the real business world.

 If anyone is in Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia do check and drop by Madam Elenor Annie Keun food stall and many others Small and Medium Business Entrepreneurs at Little Penang Street Market which is held every last Sunday of the month.

 Enjoy the wonderful offerings, food delicacies, and hospitality in what Penang can offer you.
