The entire experience was a joy. I had a pickup at my villa. Then we went to the local market and looked at all the spices and food that was being used that day. When we got to the location, we had a nice welcome drink then tasted a bit like cinnamon. Very cool and refreshing. Then we were introduced... More

We had a good size class - 7 pax in total and our Chef (Ketut). We visited the local markets which was a pretty cool experience, nothing fancy but we get to try some local fruits/food. The place of the cooking class was not the most pretty but cheerful Chef Ketut and other staff just made everything great! The style... More

Our grown up children want to learn more about the local food and cooking. This class was recommended by the villa staff. The class started with a market visit with a local guide who is also a rice farmer. The cooking class took place in airy open bungalows. The standards of hygiene was very good. Ketut was an extremely cheerful... More

I am genuinely quite saddened this cooking course experience. I’ve done two other cooking courses in Ubud, but this time they were full and I wanted to treat my family to the experience. So I choose Ketut’s Bali Cooking class. Let me run through the pros and cons for you. Pros: 1. Pick-up went well. 2. The sate and curry... More

Spent half a day (8 am - 1 pm) attending Ketut's Balinese cooking class. First hour on the local market in Ubud, being introduced to many Balinese spices and vegetables. Then to his cooking school. Instructions were very good - and funny. Lots of hand-on experience. We made several basic Balinese sauces (bumbu Bali, peanut sauce) from scratch. Then used... More

Absolutely hilarious day, never expected to laugh so much during a cook class but Ketut is so funny, as well as an excellent chef and teacher! The pace of the class was perfect and the food at the end was beautiful. Would just mention that it might not be suitable for a more experienced chef as it's definitely aimed at... More

You will not be unsatisfied with this trip to school. Set in a peaceful part of Ubud, amongst the rice fields you'll create a swagger of dishes, along with the help of your instructor Made, who is a bonafide pun machine. Good value, great quality and excellent hospitality and support. Look forward to coming back and doing an advanced course!

After being picked up at 8am we went to the market with one of Ketut's staff. There, we were introduced to all sorts of Balinese food ranging from cakes derived from rice or palm sugar to fruits vegetables and spices. The marketeers were happy as our Balinese host helped himself to food for us to try and they then discounted... More
