Overview - Join a cooking class with charming chef Maria in her home. Start off with a market tour before whipping up 5 classic Indonesian / Balinese dishes of your choosing. You'll even get her secret recipes so you can make them at home. Highlights- Local Market Tour in the Morning (100% non-touristy) Choose up to 5 dishes to make in one lesson Enjoy the authentic, local atmosphere of Maria's home Detailed recipes with photos included so you can make your favorite dishes at home! Flexible scheduling Description - While my classes are flexible and the start time can be tweaked upon request, if possible, I recommend starting our day at 8.30am with a market tour in the morning at the new Kuta market (Pasar Kuta Bahru, which is walking distance from my house), where you will get to see fresh produce and oogle at the offerings. I will explain the unique ingredients on sale. After the tour, we will return to my house where my class will cover 3 dishes of your choosing while Maria chooses 2 dishes. Just so you are able to replicate the results when you get home, I will give you detailed recipes and photos of the spices we use. Some of my most popular dishes include: - Beef Rendang (beef cooked in coconut milk and chilli paste) - Chicken Sate with Peanut Sauce - Nasi Goreng (fried rice) - Chicken Bumbu Bali (Spicy Chicken soup) - Gado-gado with peanut sauce - Fish pepes (Fish and spice, wrapped in banana leaf, then steamed) - Chicken Betutu I look forward to seeing you in my kitchen soon!

Good experiential cooking class where you can even choose which dishes to cook for a change. We attended as a couple and got excellent assistance as we happened to be the only ones that day. We were picked up from our accommodation at 8.30 and after walking through the nearby Kuta markets (an experience in itself) we went by taxi... More

Maria is such a great person. She taught us a lot of dishes with a lot of patience. We recommand this cooking class with her as you will learn many local secrets and will enjoy tasting what you cooked at the end. Thanks again for everything Maria, Eytan from France

Fascinating day. We actually booked for four hours but finished up doing nearly eight. Started at a market where a lot of unfamiliar fruit and vegetables were pointed out. Then back to Maria's tiny rooms to get cracking. we made five or six dishes as a sort of group effort, Rendang, very complex and quite hard work, a chicken dish... More

Wow, what a wonderful day with a wonderful host. The class was hands on, informative, and oh so delicious! Maria is simply lovely, making sure we were all well looked after. The food was soooo good. A depth of flavour no sauce mix could hope to emulate. It was the most enjoyable experience of our stay. I looked at many... More

Maria is a great cook and guide, with good knowledge of local produce and Indonesian cuisine. We enjoyed a trip to the market, then preparing and cooking 5 dishes. It was a very hands on, down to earth experience. Recommended for anyone that would like a truly 'local' and traditional cooking class. A really authentic adventure!

She has amazing cooking talent, teaches you a lot, food is yummy and her house is very clean. We've cooked the recipes back in Aus and they turned out fabulously!

I went to Maria's cooking class by myself when my husband went diving. She came and pick me up from the hotel and we went straight to her house because it was raining that morning so we weren't able to go shopping at the market. Her place was tiny but she kept it clean.
