Full description
Learn to cook authentic Balinese food at a cooking class in Bali, and experience a different side to the island rarely encountered by tourists. Meet the friendly locals and take a tour of a local market where they start their day early in the morning buying and selling their daily ingredients. Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in the Ubud area and journey to the cooking school at an organic farm. Get a welcome coffee or tea on arrival, and then take a tour of the premises. Learn how a Balinese family makes use of the natural resources surrounding them, as you collect some vegetables for your class. Get an introduction to your chef, who will ensure everything runs smoothly throughout your class. Then, prepare a menu (regular or vegetarian) to enjoy at the end of the class. Regular Menu: Prepare the dishes for a regular meal, including a base gede (traditional spice paste) and sayur urab (mixed green salad with coconut and spice). Then, learn the secrets of opor ayam (Balinese chicken curry) and sate lilit (traditional kebab made with pork and Balinese spices). Prepare a tuna sambal matah (tuna with raw sauce) and tempe asam manis (sweet sour tempe), along with pisang goreng (banana friters with coconut and melted palm sugar) for dessert. Vegetarian Menu: Cook a vegetarian meal, starting with a base gede (traditional spice paste), and then follow by making an authentic gado gado (steamed vegetables with traditional peanut sauce) along with an opor tempe (Balinese tempe curry) and bergedel (fried corn with Balinese spices). Discover the secrets of tempe asam manis (sweet and sour tempe) and tum bambu (wrapped in banana leaf). End by making pisang goreng (banana friters with coconut and melted palm sugar) for dessert.

    The teachers were really great and the pacing was good. You got to make two appetizers, eat it, and then make three more dishes (so you aren’t starving for hours before the food is ready). The place is relatively new so the facilities are pretty nice. Instead of a market tour, we picked some of our own ingredients in the garden. Highly recommend this tour.

    I’d highly recommend this. From start to finish we enjoyed every bit of it. The staff were amazing and we got to pick some vegetables from their own farm to cook that day. The food was so good and they gave us some recipe booklets to take home after. They also catered to vegetarians!

    Already the drive to the location is mesmerizing. The tour across the farm was funny and informative, it is a unique experience to freshly pick your own vegetables. After this, the cooking was authentic and amazing, the staff is incredible and the food turned out great. I can not recommend it enough!
