    What an authentic, well organised and smooth operation. Went daughter and I gifted the cooking class to my husband as a birthday present during our time in Ubud. We were so impressed with how hands on it was, how funny Pushpa (the head chef and lady of the house) and her husband were. They had a great sense of humour and welcomed us all into their home. We learnt so much about Balinese cooking and culture during our time here. They accommodated our four year old daughter so well as well and involved her in all of the steps as she loves being in the kitchen. We could NOT recommend this class enough or fault Pushpa’s method. We met some great people and made some friends too! Definitely a highlight of our holiday to Bali for sure! God bless Puspha and her family for organising this so well and allowing us to feel so comfortable in her home!

    After the pick up at our hotel in Ubud we went to the local market to get to know the typical products with our guide, after which we went to the house of our teacher who offered us a welcome drink and is allowed to see her temple of family. After that we started cooking and cooked the typical main dishes such as nasi goreng, gado gado and satay..all super good and fun! I recommend everyone to try this experience!

    It is the wonderful class. I joined the morning class and visited the local market. The driver is on time to take over us and guide us to know more about the local people daily life and cooking ingredients. And we go to traditional Bali house to learn the cooking. The teacher is very funny and easy to follow the cooking. All the food is delicious.
