This was a really great day out... Got to see the local market... Really helpful tour guide who was great fun, excellent spoken English as he had worked on cruise ships, enjoyed making some local dishes in the town in a local housing area, in a well equipped garden kitchen.
Via tours link to this supplier who we booked through, maybe book direct?

Thank Daniel S

If you really want to get in on Balinese culture and food, this is the way to do it. Nothing but glowing remarks for this cooking class and the experience all in all. We were picked up from our hotel by our "guy for the day" Dhono! Right away we smelt the pride for his country pouring out of him. He even stopped to a rice field on the way to give us a little lesson on the ins and outs of rice fields and the labour behind it. His enthusiasm was through the roof. I imagine him as an excellent tour guide. Back on the road and the first stop was the market. Dhono gave us a little tour around the market, telling us about all the local foods and even giving us a taste here and there with the vendor's approval of course. Off to the cooking class we go and we were so excited that it was in a family's traditional Balinese compound. I was dying to get inside one since we first drove passed them, and it was everything I expected and more. Family living side by side with their own beautiful temple. The class was set up really professionally and organized to the T. We had the best time, great laughs and the food turned out delicious as well! We left with a certificate, recipes, and most importantly full! Suksma Dhono!

This was a really great experience. Visiting the market first was a wonderful way to learn about local Balinese fruits and vegetables as well as getting a small taste of local life. The cooking class afterwards was amazing we made ourselves a banquet for lunch all of which was very good thanks to our wonderful teacher - I Dhono - his enthusiasm was infectious and I will definitely cook these recipes again at home. Throughly recommended.

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.
