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
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.
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
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.
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!
Really well organised. Great host and teacher, lovely facility and superb food!
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.
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.
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.
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
