Paon Bali Cooking Class was full value. Wayan and his wife Puspa are both very entertaining and extremely gracious hosts. The day started with a tour through the Ubud market where we were introduced to a variety of Balinese fruits, veggies and spices, led by Pupsa. We were then driven up the hills to the rice fields where Wayan gave... More

Then Wayan took us to the rice fields of his village and explained the rice harvest... More

They are incredible hosts. They gave just a little cultural explanation of their house and as we went along with the food. The food was great. They're also very organized. Everything went smoothly. They accommodated for a girl who was allergic to spicy food and you could hardly tell. I highly recommend it.

I contacted them by email when we arrived in Ubud and asked if we could learn some different dishes second time around! No problem -... More
