“The best cooking school in Bali!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

I can highly recommend Green Kitchen for anyone who wants to learn how to cook balinese dishes. The couple who runs the Green Kitchen are so warm and symphatic and they make you feel warmly welcome to their home in beautiful countryside. First we went to buy delicious foodstuffs from local marketplace and cooked dinner what tasted amazing! We also went walked throught beautiful green rice paddies. After all eating and nice chatting we finnished our day by swimming in fresh and clear river what was wonderful! I can always travel back to that day in my mind and get my soul feel that same peaceful spirit again :)

“Great experience out of the city in a tranquil surrounding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

Got roped into this by my girlfriend, but turned out to be a really good day. Unlike most of the other cooking experiences that are offered around Ubud, this one takes place in a traditional outdoor Balinese village setting, rather than a kitchen. Included in the day are a tour of a Balinese house, the local markets (where we didn't see a single other tourist - authentic), the rice padies and the river.

The food is fantastic and to be honest a meal like that would have wound up costing us close to the fee anyway, and this way we got to experience cooking it ourselves. The hosts are very friendly and speak English, Bahasa and Japanese. The 3 village ladies helping with the cooking were all great. Everything was very authentic and the group was just the two of us. Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an authentic, non-package tour experience. Especially those looking forward to not bveing surrounded by tourists all day.

“Fantastic experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

The green kitchen is definetely a fantastic way to learn about balinese cooking and lifestyle. The couple who runs it is lovely and the staff very. You learn how to cook in a traditional balinese style with all fresh and natural ingredients - many of them coming straight from their garden. The food is just delicious and fresh. And the location is breathtaking, in the middle of a village, rice paddies, stunning views. The kitchen is an open space, so, you can appreciate the view the observe the local activities as you cook. The market is quiet interesting, and the stop on the tiver at the end is very refreshing and adds a nice touch. We havent seen one single tourist for the while tour, we were the only ones in the middle of the locals. Highly recommend even if you arent into cooking.

“What a relaxing true Balinese cultural experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

This is a new business so didn't know what to expect. This is for those who would like to be immersed in the real Balinese culture for a day..... This is advertised as a cooking experience but it us more than that. You spend your day talking and relaxing with a family, Nyoman and Yuka. They takes you to the local market then onto his family home and explains about the family structure.... then onto a walk through the rice paddy fields. Finally ending in his organic garden on top of the hill where we spend the day cooking our many courses from scratch!! Chatting the whole time... it is a slow paced day but one we will not forget. Low key, no whistles and bells just back to basics... ahhhh how wonderful.
