We did this class during our 4 day stay in Moorea. We got to learn about the local ingredients growing right outside the cooking lab and did actual hands on Polynesian cooking. Audrey and Stevenson's passion for local ingredients and their easy going approach made the 'class' fun and enjoyable. Getting to eat the fruit of our labours at the end was definitely the cherry on top. By far the best meal we had, it just tastes better when you make it yourself. Highly recommend if you have a half day and want to take the time to learn new culinary experiences.

I am a food professional and this workshop delighted and reinvigorated my desire to cook with local ingredients. What a wonderful day of learning!!! The culmination of which was sharing our results (5 delicious dishes presented like edible art) in a beautiful setting with new friends! We unearthed simple local ingredients and created an exotic meal using basic cooking techniques in a new way. No question was left unanswered and we all got to participate in every as pectoral of preparation.

We did this cooking class today and it is so much fun and a great value for the money. I loved how this class focused solely on the locally sourced foods from the island. We learned about cultivation, history and cooking. Absolutely wonderful and I would highly recommend it. Another great way to support locally owned and operated business on Mo'orea.

We had such an incredible experience at the cooking class. Audrey and Stevenson were amazing hosts and teachers. It was a unique and memorable way to explore authentic Tahitian cooking. The ingredients they provided could not have been any fresher (we picked many of them from their garden), and they walked us through the preparation of five or six dishes step by step. They were knowledgeable about the cultural and historical elements of the dishes, but were also just generally fun people to spend a couple hours with.
I couldn’t recommend this experience more to anybody visiting Moorea!

My wife and I were on our honeymoon and were fortunate to squeeze this class in. If you are looking to learn a lot about the cultural and cooking aspects of Moorea I would HIGHLY suggest this class. Audrey and Stevenson were so kind and were great teachers which allowed us to have a great experience. We learned a lot about the way that food was grown on the island, how it was harvested, and most importantly the many ways that the food from the garden could be cooked and prepared. We learned a lot about the cooking and this was easily one of the best cooking classes that we have done in all our travels. Ever since we took the class we haven't been able to stop telling everyone we know about this unique experience. I would highly recommend this class and we hope to return to Moorea and take the class again.

An unforgettable experience! Audrey and Stevenson were very hospitable and professional. They showed us around in the beautiful garden and then taught us to make delicious local dishes with fresh local ingredients. 😋 So yum, so fun, and so recommended!

This is a Must Do experience. We had a fabulous time.
We learned about the culture, and how each food item played a role. We made incredible dishes, and then was able to eat with everyone.
Total 5 Star experience and highly recommended!
