We enjoyed our time with Putu and her family a lot! Not only did we cook 6 tasty meals, but also learned about the way of living on Bali, starting from how the traditional house looks like, to grinding as a better alternative to a food processor, to farming, religion, culture and many other aspects of everyday’s life. Putu guided us through the whole process and made us feel like good cooks :) She and her family then shared a dinner with us and even gave some local fruits as a gift. Overall, highly recommended!

Very authentic Balinese cooking experience. Putu picked us up and dropped us off to our accommodation. We prepared about 6 dishes and she and her family were very supportive and helpful with my 3 children in the kitchen (aged 6, 9 and 9). The dishes were all delicious and there was way too much food for us to eat.
She also showed us how rice grows and was very knowledgeable of the local area.
I would highly recommend this cooking class as an authentic Balinese experience.

Wow, what a phenomenal experience. We are travelling to Ubud for our honeymoon and wanted to learn how to make traditional balinese food. Putu and her husband, Pasta were amazing hosts. They were attentive, patient, incredibly knowledgeable and warm. We highly highly recommend this tour for a highly cultural experience and DELICIOUS meal.

Thank you Putu, Pasta, and your family for welcoming us to your home.

Wow! If you have time I urge anyone to do this cooking class!! It was definitely the best experience I’ve had while being in Bali. Dewa was incredibly kind and very informative with giving us a lot of history of the village at which he lives. We started off the tour by walking through the garden and picking fresh vegetables and herbs to cook with. We walked through breathtaking views of the rice fields and eventually made it to Dewa’s home where we were welcomed immediately by his cute dog, Doggy. We then proceeded to cook 6 amazing, mouth-watering dishes. Dewa provided us with a notebook, made from recycled local materials, so I could write down all of the recipes which was very thoughtful! I really loved this experience and would do it again in a heart beat. Thank you so much Dewa for a wonderful, rememberable day!

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our time cooking with Putu and her family. We made six traditional Balinese dishes that were all delicious! Putu is a very
kind teacher, taking the time to explain all the dishes, where they grow their ingredients, and how they make offerings in their family temple. I would 100% choose this style of cooking class every time. Thank you again Putu and family for a lovely afternoon.

At Ubud, Wayan picked me up in front of hotel, Kamandalu ubu, and went to his house.
He and his wife welcome to me and we cooked traditional food together.
It was very delicious and wonderful to me.
I hope to visit there again.

This was an incredible experience this family is lovely. I did two cooking classes in my time in Ubud. One I raved because it was upscale and interesting to learn high level and gourmet Bali cuisine. This was raw, personal, authentic and accessible. You’ll embrace this family to. Start your journey here.

Putu and Pasta took us in and made us feel like family for the night. We had a wonderful experience preparing and cooking dinner with them. Each dish that we made was absolutely delicious. I am salivated right now just thinking about it again. Putu has the best sense of humor. I really loved seeing how her family lives on the farm and all work together to create a heartwarming food experience. I would have never known what it truly feels like to eat in a Balinese home with a Balinese family if it wasn’t for the grace of Putu. She’s the absolute best!!

Having to cook with locals like Kedek and Putu is such a pleasure. This experience is not only about cooking but rather about experiencing how people are. The generosity and authenticity that Kedek and Putu have treated us with speaks volumes to the culture of Bali.
All my Bali trips have been a pleasure; but this is a different level pleasure and ease that Bali represented this time.
I do recommend cooking with Kedek and Putu.

We spent several enjoyable hours with Putu learning how to prepare and cook six different Indonesian recipes. Putu is a wonderful teacher and also shared her recipes with us via WhatsApp. We were so inspired that we ended up bringing a lavastone mortar and pestle back home with us and are now working our way through an Indonesian cookbook!

Although this activity is all about the food, it works on many other levels too. Putu and her husband collected us from our hotel and drove us through some of the rice fields on the outskirts of Ubud, explaining much on the way - such as the role of ducks in cleaning up the harvested fields. Putu also gave us a good insight into life in a typical village house and the importance of the community on Balinese culture. We were even asked to share in making offerings at the family shrines before we ate.

If you are fortunate to ever had a few spare hours in Ubud, then I cannot imagine a better way to spend your time. A recent review on here describes this as the best experience in Bali and we completely agree!
