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!

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.
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!
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!
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!
Best cooking class we could imagine. Great guidance, deep knowledge, amazing food in a perfectly modern place. Our best day in Bali sound far :)
