    Great experience, suuuuper well organized and you will be fully involved in all the steps. Definitely the best food I had in Bali 😅 It‘s a very advanced kitchen and set-up, so wouldn’t say it‘s fully authentic Balinese style. But anyways, totally worth booking ☺️

    We joined the afternoon cooking school yesterday and absolutely loved it. It was hands on without being too much and we made lots of different things and finished with a yummy dessert. Pick up and drop off at hotel and we got to meet a great group of people too. Would highly recommend.

    Great class with a wonderful instructor. We were taught how to prepare some staples of Malaysian cooking - a chicken curry, Gado Gado, tuna steamed in banana leaves, coconut green bean salad, Tempe Manis, coconut chicken satay, & banana pudding. Once the cooking is done, the group sat down to enjoy the delicious lunch. Family friendly activity. Take the morning class if you can as it includes a visit to the local market.
