I really enjoyed my time with Putu, and I highly recommend this experience! I heard about this from a friend, who highly recommended it to me and said that it was lovely way to spend an afternoon near Ubud with Putu and learn how to cook Balinese food. Her family member picked me up at the place I was staying near Ubud (and dropped me off later) and arrived at her family's home. She was very warm and welcoming, and gave me some fresh young coconut water and Balinese snacks to enjoy while we chatted. Putu has many years of experience cooking for her entire family and Indonesian restaurants. The cooking class was awesome! She has great English and was a great teacher! Everything was super organized and clean! All of the ingredients, including vegetables, meats, and sauces, were portioned out beforehand and she was really clear in explaining how to prepare and cook each dish, and giving me adjustments and encouragement! I enjoy cooking at home, and I gained confidence cooking some of the Balinese dishes that I had been eating in restaurants. After cooking, I enjoyed eating all of the dishes for a late lunch, and some of the versions of the dishes that we made were more delicious than what I had eaten in the local restaurants. I took a box to-go to enjoy later for dinner, and I was happy to be eating that compared to the food offered at the place I was staying. If I have the opportunity to go back to Bali, I will definitely want to take another cooking class with Putu! She said that if you cook with her more than once, she changes and customizes the menu so that you are learning new things. This is a memorable and comfortable way to spend an afternoon in Bali!
