Trying to stay away from the well trodden tourist routes and activities I was searching trip advisor for balinese cooking lessons near Ubud. I came along this one on trip advisor with great reviews so we booked in.
We had an excellent time.
Dhono picked us up from our villa on the other side of Ubud from his Kampong. We then went to his local market learning about produce used in Balinese cooking. Much of it we had seen at our market back home but some we were unsure what we vould do with it. Now we know!
We then went back to the Kampong of his family and set about learning how to cook 5 dishes.
Dohno is an acomplished chef with alot of knowledge about his craft and is eager to share his passion for Balinese culture and food.
Time went buy very fast and before we knew it we were savouring the feast of out labour.
I highly recomend this experience to people of all levels of cullinary skill.
A very enjoyable experience. Thankyou Dhono.

this was the one experience that exceeded our expectation at every turn. The class is held in a beautiful home with extensive and serene gardens. The chef and his staff were charming, patient, very skilled and funny. You start with coffee and treats and a traditional gift. Then you really learn and make an amazing 5 course meal. At the end you enjoy the food you prepared.We then toured the grounds and met the families and their sweet roosters, chickens, cow, pig, kittens and pup. So fun! My 8 year old and teenager boys loved it too.

I literally have no words to describe how good this restaurant was. Good attention, fabulous food, excellent drinks and it has a really good mood!
The price isn't too high if you have a decent budget, it is expensive to the prices of the country through, I'm taking about eight or ten USD per person, but the dishes really worth it!!
If you go you'll have no regrets at all!

My first cooking class and it was amazing. Starts off with a trip to the market. Wayan Apple is a fantastic guide. Took us through the different market stalls explaining the different kinds of produce. We get to touch, smell and taste. Then an insight into the Balinese household and way of life. The chef was fantastic, walking us through the ingredients and steps of each of the 5 course menu that we cooked ourselves. Which we get to sit down to enjoy at the end. Amazing flavours and one of the best experiences. I would definitely recommend this to all my friends as a must do in Ubud.
