Full description

Learn to cook authentic Balinese food at a cooking class in Bali, and experience a different side to the island rarely encountered by tourists. Meet the friendly locals and take a tour of a local market where they start their day early in the morning buying and selling their daily ingredients. Journey to the cooking school at an organic farm. Get a welcome coffee or tea on arrival, and then take a tour of the premises. Learn how a Balinese family makes use of the natural resources surrounding them, as you collect some vegetables for your class. Get an introduction to your chef, who will ensure everything runs smoothly throughout your class. Then, prepare a menu (regular or vegetarian) to enjoy at the end of the class.

10/10 experience, highly recommend to anyone who is interested in Indonesian food and cooking. We opted for the morning lesson because it was the only one that included a market tour. The place was beautifully located in the middle of the jungle, just 30 minutes from Ubut. The kitchen is nicely decorated, clean, spacious and airy. We were guided by the delightful Chef, who was very knowledgeable about Balinese and Southeast Asian cooking in general. Thank you for the wonderful experience

Highly enjoyable 3-part experience. Interesting and insightful visit to a local market. The guide explained lots about daily life and bought us lots of snacks for later. Then we were given a tour around the beautiful garden and plantation, where we picked ingredients for our coming session. Well-paced cooking class, with friendly and knowledgeable staff, with plenty of time to enjoy the six dishes we prepared! Highly recommended.

The teachers were really great and the pacing was good. You got to make two appetizers, eat it, and then make three more dishes (so you aren’t starving for hours before the food is ready). The place is relatively new so the facilities are pretty nice. Instead of a market tour, we picked some of our own ingredients in the garden. Highly recommend this tour.
