    Highly enjoyable 3-part experience. Interesting and insightful visit to a local market. The guide explained lots about daily life and bought us lots of snacks for later. Then we were given a tour around the beautiful garden and plantation, where we picked ingredients for our coming session. Well-paced cooking class, with friendly and knowledgeable staff, with plenty of time to enjoy the six dishes we prepared! Highly recommended.

    I can say that it was a very successful afternoon!!! Since the weather was a bit unstable when I was traveling, it was a good decision to do this course. The pickup was very punctual at the meeting point. A magical object awaits me in the middle of the "jungle". After a welcome drink, we walked through the plantation to collect various ingredients for cooking. Then we went to work. Everything was explained very clearly. The three dishes prepared were extremely tasty. I was full to the max!!! Many thanks to the accompanying chef and his team in the background!!! Can highly recommend this course! Enjoy the meal!!!

    Recommended! Had such a nice day. A cooking course in the middle of the jungle in a newly renovated building with all facilities, but in the middle of nature. Everything is well arranged. The counselors will talk you through it and also give you many practical tips. It is not only educational but also very enjoyable. The facilitators like to joke and you eat what you have cooked together with the other participants. You get the recipes to take home, very handy! A really great experience and is definitely in my top 3 of the best things to do in Bali. To do!
