This class was SO much fun! Puspa, the main teacher, was funny, engaging, and an excellent chef! You get to actively participate in all the steps of making the 8 dishes taught during the class and they make sure to tell you alternative food substitutes that may be more readily available in your home market! Vegan and vegetarian options of all the dishes were also available. You leave with a detailed cookbook so you can recreate all you learned at home. The classroom is covered/shaded and open-air located in a beautiful Balinese home. The family’s private temple, which they are generous enough to share with participants is also beautiful and adds to the ambiance! Pick-up and drop-off from our accommodation was timely and included in the cost.

The overall experience was wonderful. The pick-up was easy and prompt and they even took us to the market and while not all places were open, given it was the PM, it was interesting to see. The class was very informative, the set-up progressional and the food incredible. So many different dishes. They were very accommodating of allergies and vegetarian option was available. They also welcomed us to view their amazing family template.

They surpassed all my expectations. They've got a professional setup going on with a huge space for cooking in a beautiful Balinese style home. You can easily book the event for large groups or enjoy a private session. Either way, you get to learn to cook 7 dishes from scratch. The meal eaten with your group is a great way to further enrich the experience and she even provided a cookbook with extra recipes to take home.

Can definitely recommend this cooking class! In the evening we went to a Balinese restaurant and knew almost all the dishes because we cooked them in class in the morning. We also got to see a traditional Balinese house.

Amazing cooking class all fresh food, very clean, staff are friendly and food tastes amazing!thank you very much!
