Great morning learning about Balinese life and culture. Food was delicious. Easy pickup from the hotel. The morning starts at the wet market with Puspas husband who is a funny character. Then to their home for an intro to Balinese home culture followed by about three hours of cooking, conversation and a delicious lunch of 13 courses.

This is a MUST-DO when you visit Bali! My boyfriend I were picked up at our homestay right on time. We were worried they would be able to find the place because it was a bit hidden but sure enough, they were there to take us to see their rice fields. I actually live in Japan in the middle of...

We started off by visiting the markets where we could see the different types of fruit,veg,herbs and spices which bali has to offer. Wayan, our guide was great and explained in detail what different ingredients are used for when cooking a balinese dish. The markets were a great experience and very smelly! After this we visited the rice fields which... More

My husband and I took the cooking class with Aunty Puspa. What a great day! From the tour through the markets with Wayan and the other drivers, through the rice fields and a stop there to learn about them, then on to Puspa and Wayan's family compound. They were wonderful hosts who made it a fantastic experience (along with their... More

We took part in the afternoon cooking class and it was just awesome. At first we gathered next to a rice field and were told everything about growing rice which was very interesting. I guess if you take part in the morning class you will actually go to the market as promised on their website but this class might be... More

Can't recommend this cooking class experience enough. You get a ton for your money, a full day from 830 am to 2 pm filled with market visits, rice field, and wonderful food. The staff is friendly, facilities are very clean, everyone is knowledgable and there ate very good English skills from all the staff. Perfect experience. So authentic.

We booked this through Audley Travel for four of us, and we had a great afternoon preparing and cooking food. We made about 8 dishes and all were very tasty. The hosts are great and it was good to see inside a traditional Balinese house. We've even used the recipes since we've been home, after finding a local Asian supermarket.... More

We went with a party of 6. It was a really fun night, the atmosphere of the family was fun and lighthearted. All of the food was really tasty. Like other reviewers, I agree in that this was not really a cooking class as it was more of a socialization. There were 12 of us in total and therefore were... More
