Traditional Balinese Cooking Class on an Environmentally Friendly Organic Farm

By Traveling Spoon
This is a unique experience that takes place at an organic community farm and kitchen run by a group of locals interested in sustainable and environmentally friendly practices. Enjoy cooking and dining in a rustic, traditional, outdoor Balinese kitchen. Walk around an organic farm to pick up ingredients, then cook and eat a traditional Balinese meal, and engage in some cultural discussion. Your fun and interactive organic farm tour lasts for about 30-45 mins as you walk through tall bushes and muddy land gathering ingredients like beans and lemongrass. After sipping on a cold beverage, and donning an apron, start by helping Kadek prepare and cook an authentic Balinese meal. Enjoy a meal of the dishes you prepared along with a couple of dishes that Kadek will have prepared in advance. Kadek will also give you a cookbook with recipes of the dishes you cooked so that you can re-create them back home!

Kadek and his team made this experience a special time during our stay in Ubud. Can only recommend it, we got a tour around the organic farm where we collected the ingredients for our cooking. Food tasted marvelous and we learned a lot about traditional meal preparation. The meal was accompanied by traditional balinese music, played by Kadek's 11-year old son. Money well spent, as it goes to maintain this organic farm.

A truly memorable and authentic Balinese experience. This is far more than “just” a cooking class, rather an immersive experience to meet an enthusiastic and engaging team from MAI Organic farm. This activity is four hours long, but at the end we found it the perfect duration as there was so much to do, learn and experience. After a warm welcome and introductory explanation, you go out to forage in the farm for the ingredients you will cook with (a highly educational experience), before learning how to prepare a Balinese meal from them. The next part involves the cooking of multiple dishes with the help of the MAI Team (led by the excellent Apung in our case) in the community kitchen which is again informative and fun. Then the finale is to eat the delicious dishes that you have prepared. We were blessed to them spend some time talking to the project’s leader Kadek who provided a fantastic insight into the work of the Pejeng community project and why it is so important for the people of the village. Highly informative and humbling. With a smooth running and inclusive transfer to/from our hotel, this finished a deeply memorable and enjoyable evening. Hugely recommended on every level

Very nice experience there,
We especially loved everything
Discovered different typical and delicious local plates. Under the very clear and cool guidelines of our chef, we used our hands to make all the steps of cooking
All of the products were super fresh and organic (Putu has almost everything in her garden, which one she introduces to us with Nice explanation)
Indeed It's more than just cooking, it is a great opportunity to deapdive into local culture and get nice discussions on the locals way of life.
Putu and familly are simply very niiiice people

Got to tour an organic farm (Mai Organic), saw all the wonderful things they're doing with the locals, and then got to cook a scrumptious feast that was some of the best food we had on our entire trip.
I can't recommend this enough.
