One of our favorite experiences when traveling in foreign countries is to take a local cooking class. This experience was exceptional, professional, and memorable. Perfect in every way. We cooked a variety of local favorites including Mie Goreng, Nasi Gorden, Soto Ayam, sambal, and several other items. Erlinda and her team were amazing and delightful to spend the afternoon with. They do some of the prep work of measuring portion sizes and chopping up some small items in advance so you spend your time in the kitchen doing the more interesting / rewarding work. The setting is pure tranquility and a lovely space to enjoy the feast you just cooked!
I don’t cook, but Erlinda made me cook and yes I loved it! Traditional Bali and Indonesian favourites shown simply. Knowing how to cook Mer Goreng noodles and Nadi Goreng properly is great! It’s so simple and we learned the special tricks that make it so much more tastier! We will be back and bring our friends! And DON’T eat breakfast!!😂
From the minute we were picked up from our hotel the team were awesome! The market visit was short and informative, the Bali breakfast, coffees and views were amazing and the team was so welcoming. We had great fun in the kitchen learning lots and all “ hands on” which was just what we wanted. 10 amazing dishes cooked. A fabulous easy to follow recipe book and inspiring and basic Bali dishes to cook when we get home!
We really enjoyed all the delicious food we made and the staff were exceptional in their help and explanation of everything. Ir was a most enjoyable time at Mexx the cooking school and I will highly recommend it to my friends.
We really didn’t know what to expect. All the staff were beyond excellent, especially Asterid ( class leader , not sure of her name spelling) Bob and Abby. The lesson was outstanding and the materials to take home were super and appreciated. The quality and taste of the food was 5 star quality in food and service. Beyond that they accommodated a 5 month old baby while we were cooking. There driver met us after the class with an item we forgot in his car. This was one of the main reasons we came to Bali, all our dreams came true. Thank you so much.
The class was fantastic. Erlinda and the other staff were so friendly and so welcoming. The class was very well organised. The pick up was on time, the tour to the traditional market was very interesting, and the cooking class was marvellous. We did the full-day class and made 19 dishes! The menu changes annually; we will be back for more classes in the future. I recommend this class to anyone visiting Bali.
Erlinda and her team run an excellent class. Erlinda is a passionate foodie with enormous local knowledge and great taste in food! You won't leave hungry but you will be full of food and new knowledge of herb and spice profiles of Indonesia. Thank you for a wonderful experience
Fantastic hands on class with a informative market stop first. The sessions were so well prepared and presented. A great day out.
From the time that we were picked up at our hotel, everything was fantastic. Loved everything about the class. Will definitely be back.
We had so much fun and the food we cooked was so fresh and delicious. The group is small so you get a lot of attention and they answer all your questions. Their school is in a more rural area of Bali so that makes it even more fun. Erlinda is super passionate and you can tell! Loved it!
The class was really well run and we made so much food !
Erlinda's bright nature lifted the atmosphere at the start. She shared her knowledge of the area making the trip to her home enjoyable. Sitting on the veranda for traditional breakfast while looking over the countryside was more than we anticipated and we had not even begun our class. The class was so well organised and we were all involved at all time in making the lunch we were to eat. I would definitely attend this class again especially as Erlinda changes the menu each year. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience. Cheryl
Very well co ordinated class. From the market experience to the sit down with other class mates to enjoy the final results, was just amazing. The grounds of the class room are amazing.
Out of 5 star rating, we’d give Erlinda a 10! She has created such a great experience from shopping in the market to learn about food, spices, and Indonesian culture to tasting a typical local breakfast. All this before beginning to cook a range of Indonesian recipes to create a true feast for lunch. The kitchen is set up so well, it allowed everyone to cook every recipe and learn technique, spices, and food combinations. She was so also able to accommodate dietary restrictions without problem. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this program
The whole package, collection, chilled water, market tour and explanations, breakfast, cooking and lunch. Very attentive staff, excellent staff to visitor ratio. Good quality facilities. Warm and welcome. Knowledgeable and funny. Well worth the slightly higher price .
Thanks to cooking class, my understanding of all meals in Bali has since increased. Cooking classes were informative, as well as making and tasting various Indonesian foods. The quality of food was better than any subsequent restaurant. The place where you eat is also nice and the course progress is very systematic and neat. If you are thinking about a cooking class in Bali, I highly recommend it.
The class was hands on,very well prepared and the staff friendly and knowledgeable. Learnt a lot and the food was fantastic.
Such a bright and welcoming atmosphere. Fresh ingredients and wonderful menu of a decent variety of Balinese cuisine.
A very full menu, a wonderful setting and a lovely day. Highly recommend this to anyone with any interest in cooking or eating!
Erlinda and her team were friendly, good fun and informative. We had an amazing experience and learnt such a lot about Indonesian and Balinese food and their cooking techniques. We would highly recommend this cooking class combined with a market tour and would have no hesitation in repeating this tour when next in Bali. Thanks to the welcoming Erlinda and her great team for a most enjoyable day.
The cooking class with Mexx Cooking Class was a great experience. Well planned and easy to follow. Staff were very patient
We had a great day with Erlinda and her staff and learnt so much. The cooking school setting is beautiful and relaxing. Enjoyed going to the local market in the morning. We were collected from our hotel by Bob who explained different things as we drove along. All in all a fantastic day and well worth it. Thank you Mexx cooking school.
Erlinda was incredible and the ladies helping her were all great teachers, what a wonderful experience
Erlinda was fantastic, the way she explained the fruits and veg at the market and tasting of some was awesome. Their preparation was great and selection of meals were so tasty. The garden tour with explanation was very informative and gives an incite to the way the balinese live. Their staff were the most polite people you would come across. Would do this again and happliy pay more. We had an awesome day. Thanks Erlinda and team.
Erlinda was very organised and knowledgeable. The setup for cooking and the deck we ate the meal was beautiful!
We started with the market tour which was fantastic as we learnt a lot about local fruits and vegetables. The class was very hands on with a local housewife watching over us as we cooked. Time went so fast and the food we made was amazing. We made 9 dishes and feasted on what we made at the end and sampled some of the other students meals. The work stations were well set out. The only downside to the class was not having more time with the chef as 98% of her time was spent with the vegetarian couples in the class. We were a little disappointed as her knowledge would have been invaluable to our experience. I recommendmend this class.
We had a great morning. Very education and informative while still being fun and entertaining. Five star experience. Will definitely do it again and reccomend it to anyone. Thanks to all involved
Great class, friendly and professional staff. We had a great morning! Would recommend anyone coming to Bali to get a little culture and great food.
We only had 3 days in Bali and SO happy we decided to do the cooking class with MEXX. It was a great hands-on experience, and very educational. The trip to the market prior to the class was insightful, and Erlinda's home/cooking school location was beautiful!
What an amazing cooking class! If you are looking for an activity that we delight not only your eyes but also your tastebuds, then you have come to the right place! This cooking class combines traditional Indonesian food and Balinese cooking techniques. They picked me up from the hotel and we had a visit to the local market to get our fresh ingredients. Then we went straight to Erlinda's kitchen. The ambiance was relaxing, clean and organized. It was a picture perfect scenario of traditional Indonesian experience. At the end of the course, we were able to learn 9 Balinese dishes, shared it with one another and had a great time, conversation and laughter. I will definitely be back!
We had a great day... It went a bit longer than originally planned but a great spot and learned a few things.
Well organised and passionate host/owner. My parents were happy with the arrangements. Very hands-on experience and with help from some assistants, they were able to learn 9 dishes in half a day. Mum was pointing out the dishes that she learnt when we had Bali-nese meals the next few days after the lesson:) Thanks host!
We went on the 13th of September to MEXX cooking school. Erlinda (host/chef-instructor) picked us up from our hotel, to go to the traditional market. Great explanation of the herbs, spices and vegetables. The Cooking itself was at her home in a specially designed area with plenty of room. We cooked several nice courses, which actually was fun to do! After that the self made rise-table was served and tasted really good! I would recommend this culinary cooking class to everybody who's planning to go to Bali!
The kids and I really enjoyed the cooking course with Erlinda. The food and drinks were delicious. But it is not just about the cooking - the full package left me with a memorable experience. The story of Erlinda and Markus, and how they built their life in Bali is fascinating. Their wonderful home in the middle of herbal plants and fruit trees is a great location for cooking. After the cooking course the visit to the Tanah Lot temple with Erlindas personal attention was great! Pick up from and drop back to Seminyak was very comfortable.
Really well organised. Great host and teacher, lovely facility and superb food!
Great day, lovely people and excellent recipes.
Erlinda the host was engaging, warm, welcoming and knowledgeable. It was a complete privilege to spend the day cooking and then learning about Tanah Lot. We visited the temple with her and were treated like family. Her school is neat Tanah Lot in the middle of rice fields. Peaceful and beautiful. Her driver was very safe. Once in a lifetime experience- but we will be back to do it all again.
Incredible experience with Erlinda. She goes beyond expectations.
Onwijs vriendelijke mensen die graag vertellen over Bali, de specerijen, groenten en andere dingen die je tijdens de workshop tegenkomt. Wij hebben de full day workshop gedaan, met een bezoek aan een traditionele markt, een ontbijt, een lunch, een les over de kruiden, een proeferij van lokaal tropisch fruit, een diner en het maken van een eigen offermandje. En dat alles op een mooie locatie!
We enjoyed this cooking class a lot! Great chef, amazing food, great atmosphere, and a wonderful villa with a gorgeous view of rice fields and the ocean! It's a must for everyone visiting Bali and looking for a suggested cooking experience.
Erlinda was an amazing host! Everyone that comes to Bali this is definitely a must do before leaving.
This is the best cooking class I have done and I’ve done 3 others. My second time there. It was a different experience again. Very informative and the staff are wonderful. Hands on and the food is delicious . Awesome time had by all. I would recommend doing this class.
Great class fun and informative. Enjoyed market tour and the ladies involved in the class were helpful and fun to share the morning with. Have some great knowledge to go home with and recreate. Thanks to all.
My Mum and I chose this cooking School because they have a full day program with a tour of the markets. We were not disappointed. I have been to cooking schools in Thailand, Myanmar and Cambodia and this was by far the best one. The day consisted of being driven from our hotel, market tour with explanations, traditional breakfast, herb explanations, tour of their own home garden, cooking entree's and then eating them on the balcony overlooking a divine view. For the rest of the day we cooked main courses and desert and then ate even more. Not just three dishes either....we cooked 17 dishes!! Erlinda, Abbi and Mega were just delightful with traditional stories of Balinese culture, interesting Hindu facts and a lot of fun and laughs. Interestingly Marcus (Erlinda's husband) is starting another business which just looks amazing - called the Bali Fat Bike Cycling. This is a fat tyre electric bike tour along the rice terraces and the beach with breakfast and lunch cooked by Marcus who was a chef on a large cruise liner. Afterwards they even have a beautiful pool on their property you can swim in. The new business starts on Monday 21 May 2018. If we were staying longer I would definitely have done that to experience more of this families charming hospitality. 5 stars from me. A must do in Bali. :)
The best cooking class I have ever been on. Erlinda and her helpers were amazing from the time we were picked up until we got back to villa was amazing. We learned so much and cooked and ate food better than any Indonesian restaurant we have been to. Highly recommended!
This is the best cooking class I have been to...
From the minute we were collected from our Villa we had a professional, educational and fun day. Erlinda was knowledgeable, friendly and very professional. The cooking school is extremely well laid out in a very quiet, picturesque and calming environment. What can I say about the cooking experience?... AWESOME, interesting, delicious and enjoyable. I have been to cooking classes in many countries but this was the best by far.. DO IT..... A FANTASTIC DAY OUT
Going into this program I hadn’t any idea what to expect as I hadn’t read any reviews or had done much research at the time I booked. MIND BLOWN. The experience was especially impressive as I am a solo traveler. Erlinda is by far one of the most interesting, knowledgeable and grounded humans I’ve met. She’s personable, attentive and really goes above/beyond. Tour was beautiful. Erlinda picked me up at my hotel after dropping her two kids off to school and we rode to a local market. She stopped to explain every sort of fruit/vegetable there was - smelling, feeling, etc. Everything we reviewed was built into lessons I learned later today when we got into the kitchen. The actual kitchen space is a part of her house. It’s location is remote and peaceful among fields of vegitation (she actual grows a number of ingredients you use in her own yard!). The class was entirely hands on and even came with a recipe book I could take notes in - perfect. At the end of the experience I was extended the opportunity to stuff my face with the smorgasbord I had created (photo attached). We rounded out our time together with a trip to Tanah Lot temple. Erlinda was so well versed and had answers to every question I threw at her. On my next trip to Bali, I will most certainly be returning. Thank you again Erlinda!!
Everything about the class was amazing, from the pickup, to the market tour, the lesson on herbs and spices, the cooking itself as well as the lunch overlooking the beautiful green paddy fields. Erlinda even showed us the traditional way to cook rice and to blend the spices using a mortar and pestle - indeed an eye opener for a city dweller like me.
Booked the full day Cooking Class and had the most fantastic day! Erlinda and her team took great care of me and I learned a lot. Not only about cooking Balinese & Indonesian food from scratch, but also about herbs & spices used in the kitchen and exotic fruits most of them grown in their own garden. We started off with a traditional market tour and afterwards had yummy Balinese breakfast on their spacious terrace overlooking the beautiful rice fields. All of the dishes cooked were delicious, but my favorites the Balinese Spicy Green Papaya Soup & the Beef Rendang. Thank you so much again for an unforgettable day! I can highly recommend this cooking class to everyone!
MEXX The Cooking School was wonderful! We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Erlinda and her staff. The market visit was very informative. I really enjoyed the fruit tasting and spice demonstration. We cooked a feast and we’re able to enjoy the delicious meal. I will be using the recipes and techniques when I go home. Bring your appetite and camera!
Best cooking class we could imagine. Great guidance, deep knowledge, amazing food in a perfectly modern place. Our best day in Bali sound far :)
Our great experience commenced at our pick up time, being greeted by the lovely Erlinda and her very professional driver in her impressive cooking school van. Visiting the local market was a fun experience you can not enjoy truly unless is done with a knowledgeable local and Erlinda gave us great information on local fruits, vegetables, coconut grinding etc - all ingredients purchased fresh for our cooking class. Back at her cooking school we were greeted by her lovely staff and a very refreshing Papaya smoothie made from her home grown produce. The actual class was fantastic and the end result was very generous and succulent - we couldn’t fit one more rice grain in to us! We even left with our own recipe book!! We recommend Erlinda to anyone visiting Bali as a must do!!
The best I have been to in Bali. Have been to three others but this one was the best for everything
I have tried three other cooking classes and this would have to be the best cleanest, friendly and her teaching skills are the best
