Indonesian Banquet Cooking Class, QLD

Create Authentic Indonesian At Home

He will join up to only 10 others in this intimate and social Indonesian cooking experience; gaining hands-on insight into the world of traditional Indonesian meals, before enjoying the fruits of their labour over a sit down meal and matching wine.



Indonesian food is a colourful cuisine, full of fresh herbs and spices to create some beautifully intense flavours. Set in the stunning Noosa on the Sunshine Coast, participants will have the chance to really learn the secrets of authentic Indonesian fare with the help of the Dutch-Indonesian Paul Rast, who will reveal the traditional recipes of his mum and grandma.

He will arrive to be greeted with a delicious freshly baked muffin and a gourmet coffee, where he and the other maximum of 10 students can gather for a chat before the real fun begins. Those running the experience aim to provide a fun, relaxed and social environment, where those participating can really get an interactive and hands-on experience to take away with them.

The term “rijsttafel” is used in Indonesia when referring to a banquet – it literally translates to rice table, where an elaborate meal of numerous dishes with many different textures and flavours are served. As part of their rijsttafel, participants will be learning how to master:

- Chicken sate with a delicious peanut sauce

- The ever popular beef rendang

- Stir-fried green beans topped in coconut milk

- Superb spiced tempeh

- A classic nasi goring

- Indonesian style cucumber salad

- Lemongrass infused jasmine rice

- and a delectable dessert of black sticky rice with seasonal fruit and coconut cream

The best thing about this Indonesian Banquet Cooking Class is that everyone gets to have a proper sit down meal afterwards and enjoy the fruits of their labour! With full sized portions, and wine to match, he will fall even more in love with the gorgeous flavours of our northern neighbours – and have the skills to recreate the beauty at home.

Recreating it at home will be easy, too, as each participant has the chance to take home a folder full of recipes, tips and notes from the class to really impress when entertaining, or simply make a meal for one.
