Being from Dutch and Indonesian descent I grew up in a food-loving family and I spent a lot of time in the kitchen watching my mother cook Indonesian dishes. Regular visits with the Indonesian part of my family always revolved around food.

About 15 years ago, I developed a great passion for Asian and especially Indonesian cuisine. I'm really passionate about the ingredients and the flavours involved in Indonesian cuisine and I would love to learn you about the mouthwatering dishes I usually cook!

Where you'll be

We meet at the square in front Cafe 'De Drie Fleschjes', one of the oldest pubs in Amsterdam (established in 1650), you will learn more about the history of this specific neighborhood behind Amsterdam's Dam Square and New Church.

You will find out that the cooking workshop location is behind a locked fence next to the Cafe, which you can't enter without a key. This is one of the secret alleys that can be found all over the center of Amsterdam.

I attended to David's cooking workshop with my boyfriend and we loved it! We learnt many things about Dutch-Indonesian culture and cuisine. We really appreciated the experience David created for us, from telling about his family roots and showing us main ingredients to cooking with them to prepare 4 different dishes. Recipes were relatively easy so that we could replicate them at home afterwards and fun to cook! I appreciated David shared them with us via email so we would not forget them. All good and really recommended!

We had a great time. David’s place is in a great neighborhood and is immaculate. He is very friendly and makes everyone feel very comfortable. He put in a lot of effort even before we arrived. Food was divine and we left with full bellies! It was a great way to spend our afternoon and learn some new recipes/tips/history, etc. Highly recommend this experience!
