Wow, what an amazing experience with Heinz von Holzen the 5 star master chef! This guy is truly amazing we learned so much. We didn't just learn how to cook but so much about the culture of the people. "Mama Bali" is an amazing lady. Everything is fresh. All the ingredients we bought at the market ourselves. Our spice and... More

If you would like to understand Balinese cuisine and are very fond of cooking - this is a must attend attraction in Bali. Worth every cent of it. There were 2 options presented how it is possible to participate: start 6am - go to market and learn how to select ingredients (costs more) start 8:30am - skip market (costs less)... More

The most wonderful experience and well worth the money. Heinz was a great host and his enthusiasm for food was inspiring. It was like taking part in a television cooking show.

The cooking class was interesting - the food was great but Heinz was great at putting people down - by the end of the class no one wanted to answer any questions or ask for fear of being put down - I get your the expert, but constantly making fun of peoples responses became a bit tedious by the end...

I did enjoy the cooking class, however, would have loved to really cook. I like to be more "hands on". Heinz, the owner of the cooking school, has a lot of knowledge which he is happy to share, sometimes its the "Swiss approach" and you get overruled with everything and his way is the way it got to be -...

The cooking class was recommended to us by our driver/guide whilst we were in Bali & so I did it. It was really an amazingly cultural experience and fascinating to learn all the varying techniques both new & old that the Swiss Head Chef Heinz owner taught us. The food was really beautiful and very realistic to replicate the recipes... More

What an amazing cooking class. Bumbu is the best cooking class I have done in Bali. It was interactive, educational and most importantly , fun. The class is perfect for any age and offers you a great insight into the Balinese cuisine. Heinz was a great host and an incredible chef. This should be at the top of your list... More

Don't leave Bali without experiencing this event! It is so much more than a "cooking class". We started at 6:00AM with the trip to the market. Heinz explains so much about the culture, the food, the values, of the Balinese people. He knows the market vendors and we felt very comfortable going around the market with him. He would stop...

We emailed to make our reservations, they've kindly organised pick up and drop off transport from our hotel near Nusa Dua. The driver was on time, the ambience of the restaurant was good, with dance and music performance starting from 730. The food presentation and taste was good. We enjoyed it.
