Depending on the form, the duration of an English-spoken Indonesian cooking class is 3,5 or 4,5 hours. First, I introduce myself and tell you about my Asian roots and passion for Asian cuisines.
You learn about specific flavors, aroma's, history, uses and combinations of key ingredients of Indonesian cuisine.
I guide you step by step how to combine these ingredients, and to cook Indonesian spice pastes, and various delicious and tasteful dishes.
Finally, you enjoy the dishes that you have cooked yourself, selamat makan (enjoy your meal)!
David is an amazing teacher. He is very polite, respectful and professional. He gave us an introduction to the Indonesian cuisine. We started off with an intro round and background knowledge about Indonesia, his personal background etc. We learned 5 dishes in just a few hours. We will definitely come back!
Our mission is to make Indonesian cuisine accessible to everyone. We often notice that our guests think that:
"We had a really great afternoon with David. He gave us a brief introduction to himself, his heritage, and Indonesia! Then we cooked 5 different dishes and enjoyed eating them afterwards. David speaks English and Dutch fluently and made us both feel very comfortable. We learnt a lot and look forward to learning more!"
"Our experience was absolutely lovely. Upon arrival we were taught a bit of history about David and his passion for Indonesian cuisine. I really enjoyed that part as it gave me a better understanding about what it was we were about to cook. The cooking experience itself was very welcoming and wholesome. David and super down to earth and is eager to get to know who he’s teaching as well. The food itself was so delicious...I learned a lot in this course."
"Wonderful lesson. David is a fantastic, well spoken and informative teacher. I had never been exposed to Indonesian cooking before and the meals we prepared have quickly found their way into my weekly cooking schedule. I would highly encourage this class to anyone. The meals are tasty, the atmosphere is pleasant and the David is an amazing host."
