And if you can’t get enough of the Aman experience in Java the focus is on authentic Indonesian dishes with each class lasting 2 hours and limited to only 4 people. A good beginning is a freshly brewed cup of Java and an introduction to fresh and dried spices, often with medicinal properties. Chef then demonstrates three dishes which the lucky guests have for lunch. Soufflés, are also demonstrated in the Pastry Kitchen and these mouth watering chocolate joys may be naughty but oh so nice.

While you’re in the area, why not stop on the Island of the Gods, Bali. The tailored program starts at sunrise at the Amankila’s market. On the guided tours of Klungkung, the local market, the potential cooks even participate in purchasing the fresh ingredients. Often this visit includes a trip to the traditional cake factory to watch how Palm Sugar is made before heading back for the half day lesson.
