My husband and I had an amazing time with Putu at her family home. On arrival we were given a tour of their home and greeted with delicious coconuts picked from their garden that very morning.
We felt an incredibly warm welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed talking with Putu and her family throughout the evening.
The cooking experience was brilliant, made even better by the fact that most of the ingredients were home grown. We cooked 5 different meals and have been sent the recipes for us to have a go ourselves at home. We would recommend this experience to anyone and we can’t wait to have a go at cooking the meals ourselves now we are back home. Thank you again to Putu and her family for making us feel so welcome and teaching us to cook some delicious food!

We spent a great cooking evening with Putu! The package includes transportation to and from the accommodation and a tour of Putu's home with garden and temple. Very interesting and authentic to learn about the life of a local Balinese family. The ingredients for cooking were mostly from Putu's own garden! We have prepared various traditional Balinese dishes and learned a lot about the preparation process. The food tasted fantastic and was by far the best food we had eaten so far! If you want to experience an authentic cooking evening, we can definitely recommend Putu's cooking class. Suksmā Putu!

If I sound like I’m gushing it’s because I am! This was an outstanding experience and window into family life in Bali.
Right from the moment of our hotel pick-up Putu & her husband Pastor displayed warm hospitality, sharing local knowledge on the way to their family home. After touring their compound and gaining an understanding of family/village living and their Hindu faith our cooking class commenced. With most of the ingredients sourced directly from their property their was no doubt we were about to feast on quality and delicious Balinese cuisine.
The cooking process was enjoyable, informative and relatively simple (I think we’ll be able to tackle most of the recipes at home) and the fruits of our labour were sensational.
If you are looking to experience true Bali, then this is an activity you should absolutely do.
I give it 10/10!
Big thanks ro Putu and her whole extended family for making every moment from pick up to drop off enjoyable.

If you’re going to Ubud, do this activity! Out of everything that we have experienced in Bali so far, Putu’s cooking class has by far been our favorite! The whole experience lasted around 4 hours, with Putu giving us a private tour of her family’s traditional Balinese home and her family’s temple. Putu and her husband were both extremely warm and welcoming. As for the cooking, the meals we prepared were delicious and her instructions were very easy to follow. The food we prepared was better than any restaurant food we’ve had in Bali. 10/10 recommend!!

I have been many times and love it. Putu and Pasta host you in their traditional Balinese home and the food is so delicious. It’s fun to cook together and learn all the tricks. Putu will even write out the menu for you (we had 7 dishes) and the recipe too. Fabulous . Add the Balinese dance too - well worth it.

The host, Putu, is extremely hospitable and made me feel like I am in my own home. Her English is pretty good.

Her cooking style is simple but yet each dish was bursting with flavour. Absolutely love the chicken sate which was so easy to prepare but yet appears complex in cookbooks.

Managed to cook soup, rice (in the traditional way), fish, sate, salad and even a dessert.

Would love to go back again to learn more dishes from Putu.

Putu and Pasta were amazing! They picked us up from our hotel in Ubud, and drove us to their local village and home. We received a little tour around their home, and then even was prepared a little snack before cooking. This is much more than just a simple cooking class - definitely an entire cultural experience. We decided to do a lunch class, which we were glad about, because the cooking is done I’m the back patio with an awning covering, right next to their farm/fields. It was nice there was daylight the entire time and we could see everything. Putu was so kind and clear with her instructions. The food turned out to be amazing! My husband still says it’s probably some of the best food we’ve had during our Bali vacation. Definitely would recommend!

What a fantastic evening ! Putu and her family were so welcoming, shared with us an insight into her culture and we cooked some amazing food! She guided us through each of the amazing 5 dishes & we defiantly learnt some new cooking techniques ! It was an absolute highlight of our trip and would defiantly recommend to all. They were gracious hosts & they picked us up and dropped up off at our hotel which was great. Can’t wait to try the dishes again and send Putu photos !! Thanks again :)

Putu welcomed us in her home and explained the concept of the traditional multi-generation Balinese house.

After some refreshments, we spent 3 hours cooking step by step delicious 5 courses meal, which was adapted to be Gluten Free since I’m intolerant.

Putu speaks perfect English and following her direction was easy and fun.

It was overall a lovely experience, highly recommended for whoever wants a taste of authentic Balinese life.

This was such a wonderful way to end our trip to Bali! Putu and Pasta and their family were so welcoming, and excellent at guiding us through cooking the dishes. We made an absolute feast, and enjoyed it with beer overlooking the family garden. This was one of the best things we did in Bali, and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a delicious and cultural experience. Matur Suksma Putu and Pasta!
