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.
Sticky Rice Cooking School Launches New Private Chef Experiences
For a long time now we have had many requests from couples or small groups of 4 or 6 people who want to have a private class rather than join one of our public classes.
Well now we have launched our new Private Chef Lunch and Dinners which allow between 2 and 6 people to enjoy a 4 course menu, matching wines and a top professional chef exclusively for themselves.
Sticky Rice Cooking School now offers people the chance to plan a private session during the week when our public classes are not running. You can either stay with us in the villas and we will come to you or for more participation in the cooking, you can book to come for lunch or dinner at the cooking school and get a bit more involved. You are in charge of the menu choices as you will be offered a choice of 4 tempting appetizers, entrees, mains and desserts.
Whether you’re a ‘sit back and watch’ type or a ‘get in there and have a go’ type the 4 courses of restaurant quality fare matched with great wines will have the same effect on everyone- A very satisfied smile, a radiant glow and a full belly!
The cost of the Private Chef experience is $500 for 2 people minimum, $900 for 4 people and $1200 for 6 people. Discounts apply if you are staying in the villas and you have more than 2 people. Allow 2-2.5 hours duration.

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.
