What a fantastic experience. This was our first cooking class and we’re already planning our next cooking adventure with Sticky Rice. Yukio is an excellent instructor. The menu was well planned. We had a lot of fun and learned so much. Thank you Yukiko and Daniel for all your hard work.
Over the last week, we have been highlighting the many fabulous experiences that are so close to us at Sticky Rice Cooking School so that you get a chance to start planning that Hills escape.
We would love to get you started by introducing our Zen Villa which is our largest of the 3 villas. Plus a cooking class with Peel St Restaurant Chef Phil Helyard on 19th April 2020.
This prize package is what we call our Short Cook and Stay package worth $640 but when you purchase one of our Gift Vouchers you can put any dollar amount, class amount or package on it for your loved ones.
We think they will love it any which way you chose!
The Zen villa has a feel of decadence and romance with its moody decor, a stand alone bath in an open plan bedroom and an indoor shower under the branches of ancient pine trees.
Used by our prestigious guest chefs ( including Tetsuya) this suite has its own north facing sunny courtyard housing a top of the range BBQ and a Jag kitchen with 3.5m island bench.
In the lounge, the sheer indulgence of black leather sofas are complimented by sleek black and white décor.
Huge spherical pendant lights create mood and drama and evoke a wow factor response.
In the bedroom, flowing sheer curtains create intimacy around the king sized bed, while the eye is drawn immediately to the elegant stand alone slipper bath with its over head pendant lighting. Adjoining the bedroom the en suite’s large format Italian tiles accentuate the size of the indoor / outdoor bathroom.
Like all our villas, the Zen Villa has relaxed outdoor seating , underfloor heating and remote control block out blinds.
It also has the additional convenience of a laundry with washer and dryer and is perfect for our longer stay guests.
Zen Villa is a design statement offering a spacious 2 roomed 70m2 of indoor living area , a private walled outdoor courtyard. Floor to ceiling glass allowing views of the garden and connection to the outdoor living spaces.
It’s award winning architecture in the Adelaide Hills and best of all its 20 steps to the cooking school!

One of the standout features of group cooking classes is their inclusivity. Unlike non-hands-on activities that might alienate certain members, cooking classes create a level playing field.
