Unique and amazing experience in Ubud! If you are visiting Bali and interested in learning more about Balinese cuisine, this is the class for you. The class is hosted at the host families estate in Ubud. They offer pick up and drop off at your note for an extra $600k IDR - the car is also very clean, new and has AC! Once you arrive to their house, they walk you through the menu - ends up being 3 courses between appetizer, main and dessert. The class is outdoors, so you won’t be in AC, but it’s a good thing as it adds a little to the experience. The family also takes you to the market where they spice the ingredients and a coffee plantation if you take the morning class! I highly recommend this class if you are staying in Bali, and definitely if you are staying in Ubud.

It was a wonderful experience. We learned about the food market and nyoman's family rice field and about the balinese temples. My wife got car sick on the way over from our villa and Nyoman made her ginger tea and helped her feel better so she could enjoy cooking and eating our delicious meal. I would love to come back and learn more balinese dishes.

I think you must really take this balinese cooking experience! They not only cover the cooking experience but also explain everything about typical and nowadays balinese lifestyle. It is also plenty of kind jokes and fun during the steps that will make you feel comfortable. Moreover, you will get in contact with very different people from other side of the planet so you will have such enrichment conversations about lifestyle in much places of the planet! Of course when you take it you will be able to cook your own balinese meals and to know how to cook them for special good luck!

It was really great but if I could change one thing it would be to better explain why certain ingredients are used, the proportion and the overall reason why to use specific ingredients over others.

What a fun experience! My family really enjoyed the cooking and eating of traditional Balinese food. My girls, 11 and 13, were welcomed and part of the mix easily. We both learned how to prepare and cook the food, but also about traditional Balinese homes. The only disappointment was that since it was a holiday, the market and rice field were not an option. Regardless, we had a lot of fun!
