We had a great experience with the K’dongding cooking class. At K’dongding you will not only improve your Indonesian cooking skills, but you will also learn a lot about the beautiful Balinese culture. We were picked up in the morning at 8:30 in Ubud and brought to a traditional Balinese market. Our guide Nyoman told us a lot about all the food and customs of the market. After that we went to the house compound of the K’dongding family where they live traditionally with all 43 family members. Nyoman showed us around and after that we started cooking in the beautiful cooking class studio. Nyoman took the time to explain everything very carefully. We had our own cooking station and after the explanation we could perform all steps ourselves. We made some delicious traditional Balinese dishes and after that we had lunch with Nyoman and Wayan, who is the head of the family. At 14:00 we were brought back to the hotel. For us this was a little late, the class could have been somewhat shorter. But besides this, we had a truly amazing experience. We learned a lot and enjoyed the enthousiasm with which the instructors tell and teach you about their heritage. Also a great place for vegetarians and vegans!

My friend and I had an amazing cooking experience with chef Nyoman and his family! We were able to ask all our questions and the food was very tasty! I really recommend to do this cooking class and to experience more of the Balinese culture.

So amazing to learn about Balinese culture, family dynamics, local market shopping, local delicacies and simplified way to cook Balinese cuisine. We ate what we made and so delicious. An excellent cooking class and Chef Nyoman was very informative and an amazing teacher.

We took this cooking class and it was very fun. Nyoman teaches you how to make a basic sauce that can be used a number of ways (in soups, on meats, as a marinade) and amazingly when used on different recipes, makes the recipes scrumptious and different from one another. We also made a curry, a salad, a dessert, a soup, and satays. Very nice environment to cook and each person has a station. The cooking class is in his home. Afterwards you eat what you cook and he gives you a certificate and a recipe booklet to take home.

We also booked the morning class which included a trip to the local market to see all the fruits, vegetables, meats, spices that were used in the cooking class. The local market is worth the effort to see.
