My husband and I did the duck cooking class some time ago. Would love to do this again sometime in the future. Teacher was very knowledgeable and taught the entire class new skills

I looked online at what the menu was for that day and booked our class from NZ before I left which was an easy process - plus we were staying at Honeymoon Villas so the charge was just on our bill. And you get a discount if you are staying there as well. My husband (who by the way doesn't cook usually - just eats!!) and I did the class which started earlier with the guided visit to the local market first. Really enjoyed that and learnt so much about the local food. There was a group of about 14 of us for our class that day which was a good number. We then split into smaller groups for the preparation of our big lunch feast. We thought this was great value, the guide who took us to the market was good and our cooking teacher was lovely too. AND the lunch was absolutely amazing, we were so stuffed for the rest of the day!! Highly recommend this if you are staying in Ubud for a few days, actually some ladies in our group were planning on doing more than one Casa Luna class which shows you how good they are. Very professional and lots of fun. A good couples activity.

We went to the market tour followed by cookery class. The market tour was interesting but nothing we couldn't have managed alone - beware that you will probably (definitely) pay over the odds for goods at the chosen stalls!
Back to the cookery school that is held in the Casa Luna Guest House. We were immediately welcomed and given tasty morsels to eat with morning tea before we started cooking. To agree with another TA contributor, there was a lot of demonstrating but this was because it would not have been practical for everyone (about 12-14 people) to each be standing over a wok and it would have taken all morning for each participant to chop and grind their own exclusive ingredients. this was still a cookery class as every one generally knows how to chop vegetables!
We learned how to prepare and cook a wide range of local everyday meals - each of them absolutely delicious which we then consumed for our lunch.
This was a highlight of our stay in Ubud and I would recommend to anyone who has an interest in local balinese food to try this or something similar.

Thanks so much for your fair and thoughtful review. Our class is a combination of hands-on and demonstration and that's because we like to teach the step-by-step process of cooking each dish, as well as, describe the distinct qualities and quantities of the ingredients. We would not be able to do this if everyone is individually tackling the dishes from start to finish. I personally would feel that we had not done our job if we let everyone simply cook away and, as you mentioned, there is also a time factor. And thrilled that the class was the highlight of your stay and we do hope to see you again. Best Janet

We had diner here twice. The food is excellent, from starters to desserts! The bar is at the lower level and there was a good live band playing. We were on the upper level, which was totally open air! Prices are correct!

Thanks so much for your lovely review! I think you were in Casa Luna and not the cooking school - but hey we are all the same place anyway. Hope to see you again. Janet

17 years ago (on our honeymoon) my husband and I had a cooking class with Janet de Neefe at Casa Luna Cooking School. The class wasn't a straight cooking class or demonstration. We learnt about the culture as well as the ingredients of some of Bali's favourite recipes.

This time we brought along our two kids (aged 12 and 15) and my brother and his two teenagers. For the most part it isn't a 100% hands-on course, but the wonderful presenter was really entertaining. She explained the background to the ingredients used and we did get to do some chopping and stirring etc. We also got to eat the dishes we/the presenter prepared - Delicious!

Overall, I thought it was a great experience in a lovely setting. I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.

Thanks so so much for your super kind review. We love repeat customers, especially when they return with their gorgeous children. And yes we don't actually do 100% hands-on because our job is to share information, so we like the class to stop and listen a little. It's a bit like university! Anyway we look forward to seeing you again, sooner rather than later. Janet
