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!

We had a great time at our class with Maria. We shared the class with two other couples- the maximum class size. Based out of Maria's house, this is a class that you'll be able to walk away from feeling confident of replicating the food at home. Her Rendang recipe is an absolute must-make! Maria is friendly and welcoming with... More

Maria is a brilliant host and is very kind. Unfortunately we were staying too far away to make the trip to the market which was earlier in the morning however the rest of the day was really good fun! Maria emailed us before to ask what we would like to cook and then took us through each dish and even... More

Maria isa very nice person. She picked me up at the lobby and we took a taxi to get to a market. As I left my hotel around 9.30 am and I was staying in Legian, the local market she took me to was a bit quiet. Still I enjoyed looking around interesting vegetables, fruits and spices. I recommend you... More

I gave my partner this class as gift and it didn't disappoint. I chose this because I really liked the idea of cooking in a home because it seemed more authentic. Maria wasn't available to take us today but her sister and niece taught us 5 traditional dishes. They were absolutely lovely. We had a major language barrier as their... More

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
