What a special experience! Unlike most (if not all) cooking classes in Bali, with Kdongding you get to cook ALL of the 5 dishes yourself, in your own stove and cooking station. Because of this, you can then easily remake it at home, bc you've done everything! :) All of the menu is traditional Balinese food. You also do an extensive tour of a traditional market.

The classes take place inside Wayan and Nyoman's family complex, which means you also get to learn the structure of a traditional Balinese family complex. The cooking space is impeccably clean, spacious and fresh...and of course, everyone is warm and friendly, and they try to make it as enjoyable as possible! HIGHLY recommended.

You can't tell to have been in Bali if you don't spend some days in Ubud!!but you can't say to have visit Ubud if you haven't cooked real balinese food with nyoman in his family house!the best balinese food of our holiday (And cooked by ourselves!!) And before the class we have had a tour in a traditional market to know all the ingredients of the recipes! But above all you will feel like a part of the nyomang family!i really suggest this cooking class experience..you will love it!it's not a turistic stuff ..is the real Bali!Makasi two neyman!!!

This outdoor Balinese cooking class, held in a family compound in Ubud was a great hands on experience. From the market to the plate we were involved in all aspects of the process, creating an awesome 5 course meal for ourselves. A lot of education on local produce, fantastic friendly staff and beautiful food to finish off with. Highly recommended!!

I went to attend the cooking demonstration and I had such a great time. We had a great time with Nyoman, our chef who took us through the process with patience and grace. The cooking area is spotlessly clean and the energy here is lovely. We learnt how to make meatball curry, pancakes with pandanus leaf extract and palm sugar and chicken satay. The recipes allowed for a little tweaking and the management took my dietary requirements into account as I am on a gluten free and sugarfree diet. I highly recommend experiencing the joy of Balinese cooking at Kdong Ding. Feel free to come here with a bunch of friends or your family and dont forget to bring a hearty appetite. The class is affordable and packs in quite a lesson. I cant wait to be back.Thank you.

We had a great day with Nyoman during this cooking class.
Tour starts with a visit to the local market. Then you are invited to their authentic Balinese compound home where they have an open kitchen with plenty of pits, pans, and cooking utensils. You will learn to cook 5 different Balinese dishes.

The best thing is that the class is interesting for people with all levels of experience in cooking.
Nyoman has a great deal of knowledge about ingredients and where to get them when your are home or how to replace them.

And most important this class is about happy cooking! Why cook if it's no fun?

All in all a great cooking class that we would book again without doubt!

Thanks Nyoman!
