Great value for money. We were picked up from our hotel, learnt about the local fruit and veg at the market, and then off to the guides house. We saw the beautiful family temple and then were split into two groups and were taken to a professional set-up outside kitchen. Being a vegetarian was no problem and was fully accommodated for. As a group, we chopped and cooked ingredients, a step at a time. We then tucked into full-of-flavour Balinese dishes that we had cooked. I was shocked by how good they tasted. The best bit…we were sent the recipes to make them at home. Definitely recommend this for food lovers.

Thank you to Iwayan kar and his lovely mum who made us the most delicious authentic green curry. Learning about Kar village and Balinese culture was very interesting. It was awesome to experience the process of making coconut oil from scratch. Also got our hands dirty and helped out too. Personally it was great to experience the real simplicity of Bali living and traditional markets so it’s an eye opener for some. Awesome authentic green curry using the coconut cream you make and we take away the coconut oil too!!

We loved the cooking class and even more the food we ate for lunch! Sooooo yummi! And for us what made the experience even more funny and enjoyable was the husband of the “teacher”, who picked up us, brought us to the market and to the rice fields and explained us a lot about his culture! ;)

I would do the cooking class again at any time! The family there is incredibly nice and friendly. I participated alone and that wasn't a problem either! The warmth on site inspired me! The "yard" is also in a super nice location and very quiet, in the middle of the jungle :)

Amazing hands-on experience...Highly recommended if you have a half day to spare in Ubud!
