I visited Putu with my family today to experience a traditional Balinese cooking class. We had such a wonderful time. Putu was open, generous and knowledgeable, explaining and answering all our questions. We were made to feel welcome and enjoyed participating in preparing Bali favourite recipes and eating the delicious feast that was made with organic produce harvested from Putu’s family land. My family and I agree that this was one of our highlights of our time in Bali and would recommend that anyone, of any age, who appreciates good food, would enjoy this as much as we did. Putu has even arranged for us to have a copy of the recipes so that we can recreate the meal when we get back to Australia. Thank you again for your generous hospitality Putu!

We had the most wonderful evening with Putu and her family learning to cook beautiful Balinese food. It truely has been a highlight of our trip. Putu is a great teacher and prepared everything so beautifully. I can confidently say this was our best Balinese meal while in Bai. We met her aunty who was weaving the most amazing fabric and were able to buy some magical table runners also. Bonus

My husband and I took a private cooking class with Putu during our honeymoon, and it was an amazing experience! Putu was incredibly friendly and encouraging, making us feel right at home from the moment we arrived at her traditional family compound.

We were warmly welcomed with fresh coconut and fruit from her farm, including a new fruit we had never tried before—mangosteen, which my husband loved. Putu's knowledge of local Balinese culture was fascinating, and she generously shared her insights as she took us on a tour of her property. We explored their family temple, beautiful orchard, and met their chickens.

The cooking class itself was fantastic. We prepared a delicious traditional Balinese meal consisting of several different dishes, all beautifully presented with Putu's signature artistic touch. After the class, she shared the ingredients and recipes with us so we can recreate the dishes at home. We left feeling very full and were even able to take home the leftovers.

This experience was both authentic and unforgettable. I would highly recommend it to my friends and would love to do it again myself. Thank you, Putu, for making our honeymoon so special!

This was our favorite day in Bali! Such good food. Great instruction on cooking. Super organized! My son who is 11 did a lot of cooking . The family farm is beautiful with fresh produce that we used to cook. Even the chicken was from their farm! I highly recommend doing this class. The host is super warm and caring. If you want an authentic experience and want to learn about Balinese culture, do this!

From start to finish this was a trip
Highlight !! We were picked up from our hotel and driven to the host’s home.
We were given a full tour of the culture in Bali. She had everything prepared for us for our cooking beautifully set up and well organized
We were greeted with traditional coconut water drinks and provided with clean aprons
Each course of the meal had fresh newly picked vegetables and chicken for the main dish. We were taught how to prepare the rice and all the food courses with step by step directions. Everyone was a participant. After the preparation and cooking we sat down to a beautiful meal which was so plentiful !
Our host was amazing, informative and ordinates a beautiful evening for us!!
Would highly recommend !!!

One of the best touristy activities I've ever had! Getting to know the local culture and history, plus seasonal ingredients and cooking skills - the REAL farm to table feast for sure 🙌

We had so much fun at our cooking class - Putu was so welcoming, friendly, and knowledgable. She gave us a great tour of her home and we made so so so much food (and got to take home the leftovers). It’s a must do!!

If you are questioning whether you should do this, take my review as a yes! Please book yourself this treat. Putu is a wonderful host. Warm and welcoming. We appreciate her generosity and hospitality as she shared her culture and home with us.

The food was amazing. She even gave us boxes so that we can take leftovers.

This was an amazing experience! Putu was so kind and showed us around her family’s beautiful garden before teaching us how to cook 5 delicious dishes (with fresh produce from the garden!) We ate so well and was even able to take some leftovers!
Would 100% recommend!
