A wonderful day beginning in the local markets and finishing with the best meal we had in Bali! We would definitely do this again and recommend it highly to others. Very insightful experience into the lives of a Balinese family.

This was the best food we ate in Bali. So many different flavors in each dish, amazing. We recently tried out the recipes at home in the US... More

The whole operation is well run and friendly and the family compound is beautiful and very tranquil. The cooking itself was guided by one of the family who is a chef and he explained each step to...

Picked this one based on the TripAdvisor ratings and we really enjoyed it. The sons in the family lead the activity with a son-in-law at the helm for the cooking discussion and instruction. The discussion of the cultural aspects of Balinese living was an added bonus and the cooking/dining experience was exceptional.
