The cooking class is a great experience in Ubud. Great class structure- a short trip to Ubud marketing -> rice field -> welcome drink/ short-break-> cooking! The host (sorry I forget her name) gives very clear and precise instruction yet keeping the class at a very relax and enjoyable experience. The staff are all very helpful. The class is easy... More

Pick-up service is good and convenient. Class is interesting, food is delicious. However, it will be better to learn more if it's smaller group.

Not much more that I can say that hasn't already been said! My husband and I attended a morning class which included a short tour of the local market. The class is held at the hosts' house and we had a beautiful view from the kitchen. There were 10 of us in total in my class, the instructors were all... More

Loved this. Excellent market tour early in the morning, quick look at the rice fields then a visit to the owner's home with a welcome drink and kitchen to prepare delicious Balinese food. So so friendly and welcoming, great humour (had us laughing together all the way - a lot of fun) and the food is surprisingly simple to recreate... More
