Sticky Rice Cooking School
Located 30 minutes outside the CBD in Stirling, this cooking school has smartly tacked on three villas to its offerings, meaning you can rest at the bed and breakfast after class. The school opened in March 2013, and each villa draws from either Balinese, Thai or Japanese influences. Each one has been designed with seamless indoor-outdoor living in mind.
French doors open from the interior to a private courtyard and garden, and there’s a tub in the bathroom with a view of the Zen garden. Under-floor heating and the outdoor fire pit are welcome treats in cooler months. The full kitchen allows students staying to test out their newly acquired recipes – which span Thai, Vietnamese, Spanish, Moroccan and Japanese cuisine.
