I went to the sweet and spicy cooking class on Gili Air on my own, because my travel friend was still sleeping ;). It was in the low season, and I happened to be the only 'student'. But that didn't matter. The cook Pian, and the dishwasher (I forgot his name), were happy to give me a private lesson. They... More

Super fun experience of cooking Indonesian food. You won't necessarily learn every trick there is but you will have tons of fun and eat good food you prepared yourself!

We did the middle menu option cooking class at Gili Air and it ended up being on the the highlights of our entire 9 days in Gili/Bali. Really can't say enough about how much both my wife and I enjoyed it. I'm not normally a huge cook and certainly not the most confident person in the kitchen, but this class... More

We did the 2.5 hour class making 6 dishes. Really good fun and the staff were a good laugh. I'd say this is a must do activity in Gili T.

Attended a 4 course cooking session by Jack, and it was fantastic. The school was bright, airy and comfortable. Ingredients were well prepared, utensils and cooking equipment were all clean and within reach! Jack's lady assistant, whose name I didn't manage to catch, was unobtrusive, but alert and prompt in assisting us whenever we needed help. Our instructor, Jack, was... More

They always explained also how to do it at home and how to switch some of the... More
