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.

We dropped in here for lunch and were delighted with the atmosphere, the staff & menu. We had grilled prawns, prawn curry, veg curry & shredded chicken salad which came with a few sides. We spent about AUD $50 per person (half of which was cocktails) and could hardly finish all the food. The staff were so accommodating, played with... More

The single most wonderful experience of our 3 week vacation. The trip to the market was very informative. Heinz is extremely knowledgable, not only about cooking methods but also about the local ingredients and the impact on the environment. This is a must do if you are here. As a matter of fact I can say that it is worth... More

My wife and I just finished the Bumbu Bali cooking school in Bali near Nusa Dua. This was the best day of our vacation. Heinz's passion for teaching, cooking and helping others is something I have never seen! He is a truly special individual that not only teaches you modern day techniques but also opens your eyes to how cooking... More

Having done many bali cooking schools over the years Bumbu Bali was very good, not as hands on as some but still good with a small but varied amount of dishes to prepare and cook. Yhe Young lady instructor was patient and informative with excellent English. I had a very enjoyable time.

What a great day! The day started, after being picked up from our hotel, with a visit to the markets followed by a visit to the fish markets. Both of which were quite an education. Then back to Benoa for the cooking school itself, where we were served a traditional Balinese breakfast which was delicious. All participants were then invited... More

When I learned that I was attending a cooking school I was not thrilled, but I was surprised and delighted at all the things I learned. Heinz makes the class (all day) interesting not only with his tips, but he is constantly testing your knowledge of food and cooking. The day starts at the poultry market, goes to the vegetable...
