If you have holidayed in Bali, you’ll know how mouth-wateringly delicious Indonesian cuisine is. And since international travel is off the cards, for now, why not learn how to prepare an authentic Indonesian banquet right here in Noosa in this fun cooking class!

In this beginner-friendly cooking class, you will learn to create a “Rijsttafel” (Rice Table), which is a banquet of authentic Indonesian dishes. Joining this class will be Dutch-Indonesian Paul Rast (as seen on SBS Food Safari), who will be sharing his mother’s and grandmother’s closely guarded recipes.

Sample menu (menus are subject to change depending on seasonality and availability of ingredients):

  • Chicken saté with peanut sauce
  • Beef rendang
  • Stir-fried green beans in coconut milk
  • Sweet and spicy tempeh
  • Nasi goreng
  • Indonesian cucumber salad
  • Lemongrass-infused steamed jasmine rice
  • Black sticky rice with seasonal fruit and coconut cream

What you will learn:
  • How to create a “Rijsttafel” (Rice Table) – a banquet of authentic Indonesian dishes.
  • About Indonesian ingredients and cooking techniques.
  • Be inspired and become more confident in the kitchen.

A Life’s a Feast cooking class is more than just a cooking lesson: in addition to learning to prepare a selection of sumptuous dishes, you will increase your kitchen skills and culinary knowledge and enjoy the feast of your creation with wine, in a relaxed and fun environment.

Set on the edge of beautiful Noosa National Park, our cooking classes are interactive, hands-on and a heap of fun. We limit numbers to 10 participants so everyone is involved, which means you get the chance to prepare and cook all the dishes - you’ll come away knowing you can recreate the dishes at home because you’ve done each and every step.

Once the dishes are prepared, feast on the fruits of your labour with your fellow classmates and enjoy a generous sit down meal, a couple of glasses of wine and some sparkling conversation.

ife’s A Feast offers interactive, hands-on Cooking Classes designed to increase your culinary skills and food knowledge, and ignite your passion for food, cooking and entertaining.

Based in beautiful Noosa on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, our goal is for you to derive pleasure from food and cooking and create crowd-pleasing cuisine. We are passionate about all things culinary and are committed to you expanding your knowledge whilst having fun in the process.

Our cooking school was established in 2007, making us Noosa’s longest established cooking school, and since then we have taught, inspired, entertained and indulged thousands of participants.

About Gail Rast
Gail, our cooking teacher, is passionate about food and cooking, and her knowledge and many years of experience ensures you will increase your culinary skills and knowledge as well as draw inspiration and joy from all things food.

Philosophy
Our food philosophy is simple: Easy, Impressive, Delicious. Life’s A Feast is of the belief that food and cooking is one of the great pleasures of life, that a shared meal brings people together, and the ultimate compliment you can pay someone is to prepare them a meal from the heart. It is our experience that many people associate cooking and entertaining with stress, hard work and very little reward. But it doesn’t have to be that way – we believe that preparing a meal should be a joyous experience, not a chore. In line with this philosophy, our original recipes and menus have been developed with the following in mind:

1. High “wow” factor, low effort.
2. Use of quality ingredients – seasonal and local wherever possible.
3. Recipes are all designed to be easy to follow and prepare, so you will easily be able to recreate them at home.
