Excellent Cooking class today, such an incredible day & experience. From taking us to the Local Markets to returning to the Restaurant & learning to cook the most wonderful Balinese curry pastes was a truly amazing day and so worth doing in your trip to Seminyak, Bali.

We had a wonderful day! First went to the Denpasar markets to see all the meats, fruits and spices... then back to the amazing Spicery deli in Seminyak Square where Dean showed us so many different recipes. Taught us about spices and where they came from. I learnt to fillet a fish, and chop chicken. The day was full of... More

The most amazing experience and so interesting with a very detailed history lesson around spices and the Balinese. Chef Dean and his team were fantastic and really looked after us. The food, good coffee!! And of course the many cocktails. It was a true experience. Additional discovery of the day was Cape Discovery Sav Blanc! Real wine with the taste... More

We started the day with the market tour in Denpasar. It was interesting to see it as we wouldn't have been there by ourselves. Then we came back to Dean's new restaurant where we had our cooking class - we had a blast! Dean introduced us to the different species and then we had some snacks with the sauces that... More

We were the first group to cook out of the new Seminyak kitchen. Fantastic venue, great setup and wonderful class, so professional. Dean was a terrific host/teacher. The whole experience was second to one. Some great history on the Indonesia spices, a visit to the market and the food was delicious. A feast of a banquet not to mention the... More

We're unabashed lovers of food and cooking and have done cooking classes in most places we visit around the world. We've done a couple in Ubud and thought they were quite good. This visit, due to limited time, we thought we would try something down by the coast and as we were staying in Seminyak we came up with Dean... More

Chef Dean is very entertaining during the market tour, at the coffee shop and during the class. He has a great sense of humour, is very knowledgable about local culture and traditions and most important the food and spices. The cooking experience was really fun and the eating experience was the best.The frozen chocolate martini was heavenly. We are so... More

Chef Dean Cooking Class was by far the highlight of my trip to Bali in June 2016. Everything about the day went without a hitch. The email booking process was seamless and I was picked up on time. Even a small hiccup with some other participants and a sick child was accommodated graciously so as not to disadvantage the rest... More
