    You take the class in a Balinese house. In truth, they already have everything super well prepared and ready to take a professional class. You learn various dishes and techniques. They give you the recipe book so you can take it home. You eat everything you cook there and the group is super dynamic. you can meet more people

    This cooking class was amazing. One of the best I ever had and the food was super delicious. It was great to go to the market first and know about the ingredients we will be using, a very authentic experience. And the house where the workshop is held is very beautiful in traditional settings. The real Bali experience to say the least. I can’t wait to return and eat all the food :)

    The overall experience was amazing!! Probably the highlight of my trip to Bali and I cannot wait to use these recipes at home! The host was wonderful, she explained everything so well and also cracked a few jokes. It was fun, hands on and informative! Highly recommend this cooking class to anyone!
