Private, Traditional Balinese Meal in a Family Village Home in Ubud, Bali

Start this private food adventure with a convenient pick up from your Ubud hotel. Then head to your host Dewa and Jero's traditional home in Ubud where you will enjoy an incredible Balinese homecooked meal. Your Balinese feast may include dishes such as pepes ikan (grilled tuna in banana leaves), a delicate and deeply satisfying dish, bumbu kuning (chicken in a fresh turmeric and coconut milk sauce), bregedel (corn fritters), and jukut urab (seasonal vegetables with grated coconut and fried shallots).

This is a unique opportunity to get an inside glimpse at Balinese life in a special private home dining experience in a local home.

Please note, in keeping with their Balinese family tradition and sense of spirituality, your hosts will not share the meal with you at the dining table. Their preferred approach is to eat on one's own and focus on personal meditation to achieve a positive state of mind.

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.

Dewa is a fantastic host. We had a terrific home experience where Dewa took the time to not only explain the food but also their way of life and toured us around his village. It absolutely surpassed all our expectations and so far is the single highlight of our trip to Bali. Do not hesitate to book this tour — it is the best. And the food you cook will surpass anything you have in Bali restaurants. We learned so much of the Bali culture, this experience was invaluable.
