Just wanted to add my family's 5 star endorsement for Ketut and his cooking school. We - three adults - enjoyed the market visit, the explanations, the cooking, the comaraderie with the other participants, and the meal. Ketut has personality to spare - good humor, deep knowledge, and lots of experience showing people a good time.

We treasure our souvenir cookbook = and realized that one of the things we enjoyed most was not included. Upon arrival, we were served a chilled herbal tea - and it was fantastic! I wrote to Ketut and he kindly provided a recipe. Above and beyond!

Free pickup from hotels in Ubud. Tour started with a tour of the market - guides did a very good explanation. Great experience cooking in the countryside area with rice fields. Food was delicious!

This class was superb! Ketut and his staff are a real delight: friendly,helpful, funny and always smiling. The food was delicious and we learned how to make 6 different balinese recipes. The value for money is amazing! Having tried multiple such classes around the world, we would recommend it to anyone who enjoys cooking, it will truly be an unforgettable experience.

This was a highlight of my trip. It was so much better than I expected. The class was well organized and the instructor was so fun and pleasant. The ingredients were fresh and the food was delicious! I'm leaving Bali with a few new recipes that I can't wait to try back home.

Got picked up at the accommodation, and we started with a visit to the market. Got more information about the ingredients, but also about Balinees traditions and customs. Then we were off to the cooking class. That's where we were introduced to our chef, Ketut. He's an entertaining person that knows his way around the kitchen very well. He explains, chops, jokes ... all at the same time, who said men can't multi task? :)
We prepared 3 different basic sauces (Bumbu Bali, peanut sauce and sambal Ulek), fried chicken, steamed fish, chicken saté, mie goreng, chicken soup and a banana desert. First of all Ketut explained every ingredient we would use today, we got to smell, taste, ask questions. After that we chopped up all the spices, herbs and vegetables we would need for the preparations, everyone did their share, which made it go quickly. We had guidance and help if needed with every step. Ketut is surrounded by a good team of helpers, which makes everything run really smoothly. After cooking it was time to enjoy and eat. You can take home whatever you can't finish on the spot and you get a copy of all the recipes. Enjoyable half day activity!

Note: I didn't get dropped off at my accommodation as agreed on, cause the driver didn't feel like doing 2 stops. After asking nicely a few time, I just gave up. I had the feeling it was because I'm a young solo traveler, it happend to me a few times before. It's just a detail and it was only a short walk, but maybe confirm your stop again before leaving.
