Overview

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!

A very enjoyable way to spend four hours. Maria was very knowledgable with her cooking techniques and very professional. We were picked up from our hotel and returned at no added charge but felt that $60A was a bit too much.
