Well it started off by having to wait about 45 minutes for other customers that forgot to turn up then we travelled to a market that was filthy with rotten food ,dogs and flies, then we done the cooking class and it was nothing special just more or less a production line , the host and the people where good.
Loved this tour !! Picked up at our accommodations on time , went to the local market and then welcomed in Made’s home where we learned about the culture and made some amazing food!! Very flavorful and delicious!! Everyone involved was friendly and welcoming! Highly recommend this tour!!!
This cooking class was absolutely amazing. The food was delicious, cooking instructor was very entertaining and the level of instruction well catered to all experience levels. We were given ample time to sit down and enjoy each meal after it was prepared. I was particularly impressed at how accommodating the class was for vegetarian members of the group: the meals were well thought through and very tasty! Unlike most cooking classes, this one was conducted inside a traditional Balinese home which made the experience very personable. The entire family was extremely friendly and helpful. Unfortunately we didn't make it to the local food markets as they were closed on a Thursday.
This is definitely worth the time and money. I truly enjoyed my experience and was able to learn even more about the locals way of living. The food was delicious! I think my group did a great job cooking and the family did a great job teaching us. Definitely a must!
Perhaps because we went during the afternoon, the market wasn't included in the trip. this is ok if i'd have known, but as I expected to go there and be introduced to the local things i was a bit disapointed.
Besides that, cooking was well explained, they tried there best to let everybody do something. However compared to other cooking classes i did in cambodia and thailand this one was less fun somehow, not sure why. good enough to go and learn some indonesian food though :
This tour far exceeded our expectations. Honestly, it was the best food I ate the entire trip. I felt it was very well organized, be very informative, everyone was able to participate in many different prepping activities. I was also very impressed by how accommodating they were to the vegetarians
great cooking tour in a balinese family home. Interesting dishes that you get to eat afterwards.
Just dont think you'll make everything, there are lots of dishes and everyone gets a single job so sometimes hard to understand all the recipes if you want to replicate at home. But if you're there for local taste and ambience this is a definite
A joyful experience - Amazing fun with a very welcoming and friendly family. Amazing home with interesting explanation of how the family home is built up and what the separate traditional buildings are used for, traditions and way of life. A truly cultural experience. The cooking itself was great fun, educational and taught with such cheerfulness and love. Bonus - Received print offs of all the receipies to try when get home! A must do!!!!!!!
Absolutely amazing cooking class! So beautiful to be welcomed into the family home and to see a real Balinese home. The class was very well organised and fun. The food we cooked was delicious and we came home with not only a good understanding of Balinese food but a complete recipe book. I cannot recommend this class highly enough!
