“Great Day Out”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We did this cooking class in Seminyak in August 2013. Dean was a great host, taking us down to Jimbaran Bay to the markets, explaining all of the various seafood, spices, and other inputs into the cooking. We returned and he got us to work, showing how to prepare the seafood and chicken, grinding spices etc etc. We finished with a great feast of all the food we had sourced and prepared. Was excellent value - just a tip - you won't need dinner in the evening, so just book a table at a bar!

“Delicious experience”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

What an experience! Chef Dean's class is excellent value, for roughly AU$100 you get a whole day experience packed full of knowledge, delicious food and just as tasty cocktails. This is Indonesian food with a gourmet twist and I highly recommend it to all foodies.

Reviewed September 2, 2013

Market was a massive highlight. So much to see and experience. Cooking was so much fun. Filleted a fish all on my own. Cocktails whilst cooking was also a highlight :). Chef Dean is awesome. A must do experience.

“Chef Dean's Cooking Class - Perfect way to spend a day!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

I would highly recommend attending this cooking class to anyone coming to Bali. My husband and I both came (both of us love food, but not ones to spend heaps of time in the kitchen at home). Chef Dean kept us both engaged the entire day. The day kicked off with a tour of the spice markets in Denpasar which were AMAZING - so overcome with aromas and culture. Chef Dean is insightful in his knowledge of the products and the people. Once back at the restaurant, and plied with delicious Chocolate Martinis, Chef Dean walked us through the use of many local spices and gave a demonstration of a duck dish. We then participated in preparing another dish and picked up some handy knife skills. The group learned how to fillet fish, prepare squid and prawns like an expert and other tricks of the trade. There was an equal balance of preparation and demonstration and cocktails before tucking into an extraordinary banquet of food. This class is a must-do.

“Excellent way to spend a day”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Just amazing day and so much fun! I highly recommend this as a way to spend a fun day. Dean does an amazing job in such an organized class. I did the spice class, and.recommend the class. Going to the market was great fun with Dean as he does a great job explaining everything about the spices, cutting chickens, cleaning fish, prawns, calamari, chopping veggies. The feast and drinks we ate was the best I had in Bali. Don't plan on dinner that night as you will be stuffed after the meal. You also leave the class with a really nice set of recipes you cook. The service and staff helping Dean we all great too! Highly highly recommend the class!
