This was the first thing we did in Bali and really loved it! We spent some time picking which one to go with there are a lot out there! and were really happy we chose this one. The setting was beautiful and the chef Mangde was great. Definitely recommend going for the extra market visit as this really made our experience, going around the fish market right next to the beach and picking up ingredients from the other stalls. We prepared and cooked almost everything ourselves, and then got to eat it in a lovely restaurant area.
Enjoyed our experience, especially eating what we cooked, well with great support. Being able to have an enjoyable bottle of wine with our meal was appreciated. Being used to enjoying our wine with meals in Australia, we were missing the opportunities in Bali - they were either too expensive or when we tried not so enjoyable but the wine we had this was. Being introduced to some Indonesian ingredients that we weren't confident we would find back home was great and we have found them, however they are not so fresh here. Would love to see a larger food processor used - like we do at home, but I guess the small one that was available was better than nothing. An experience work doing.
Great cooking class, chef catered to all levels of experience. Home cook to chefs.
Chef provided substitute ingredients for items we might not find at home and answered any questions that people asked.
The location was a lovely outdoor setting to make for a very relaxing pleasant experience.
The food we made was delicious and I can't wait to make when I am back home.
I would highly recommend doing this class.
I would highly recommend this tour. Chef Wayan picked up us with a driver, and took us to the market where the locals buy their produce. We then went to the villa for the cooking class, which was a stunning setting. Chef Wayan spoke brilliant English, and explained things very well. We then had the chance to eat our menu beside the pool in the villa and it was beautiful. We even got certificates, a recipe card, and we kept our aprons. Worth the money for sure.
The tour was everything I hoped for, and more.
The drive to Jimbaran Market with Koman the lovely driver, and Wayan the Head Chef was an awesome experience. Once back at The Amala, the amazing cooking experience was one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had on my many visits to Bali.
