    It was amazing! The staff was inceedibly friendly and the kitchen was very clean. We prepared 6-7 dishes and they walked us through every single step. The food was very delicious and we really enjoyed our time there. They also gave us a cooking book with the dishes we made.

    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! ;)

    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.
