This is a must in your "to do" list when visiting Ubud. Our teacher and hostess Ibu (Mrs.) Puspa was welcoming and proud to teach my wife and I about each ingredient we will use fresh from her own garden. We cooked 8 different dishes. After we ate our food Ibu Puspa was very kind to explain the meaning of... More

For the price, you definitely can't beat it! All of the food was really delicious. The only downside is that sometimes, the class seemed to drag on a bit, but given the value, I didn't really mind too much!

This is a must-do!!! We were staying in Ubud, only a few minutes from the cooking class. Although I would travel a lot further to have this experience!!! I learnt so much about traditional Balinese culture that was very interesting. The husband and wife that own the cooking class were extremely friendly, welcoming and hilarious!! All of the guests were... More

We took part in the cooking class as part of our honeymoon trip. We were staying in Nusa Dua, which is about a 45 min drive away, but for an additional cost they sent a car to pick us up and take us back after. It was great to see the traditional market with the wide array of colourful fruits... More

We participated in this cooking class from chopping vegetables to blending ingredients in a large mortar with pestel to sautéing the ingredients add adding the sauces that make the delicious end product. Paon Bali was great for accommodating dietary restrictions and when I began to feel unwell, I even received a traditional aromatic foot rub. I highly recommend this to... More

The day started off with a visit to the bright and bustling food markets and some rice paddy fields, the guide explaining the Balinese culture and offerings and the way the rice is harvested. We then began preparations, cooking from scratch and learning the traditional methods of grinding ingredients to make a sauce or paste. The result - absolutely beautiful... More

A fantastic experience. The market tour through to the final self-made feast was well organised, fun and informative. There was lots to do and the whole family from grandparents to our ten year old had a great time. We will definitely pass on the recommendation given to us on this gem of an activity/class.

Very well organized, entertaining hosts, great food! The hands-on part was in our opinion completely adequate, considering that this is a relatively short course. Despite having 20 people in our class, we all got to try each task. Hygiene and food safety was clearly a priority, a good thing to know. You get a copy of the recipes; will definitely... More
