A fantastic experience from start to finish!

Picked up and driven to the scenic cooking school. We were a group of 4 whilst the main man, Ketut was taking a group booking of 7. Our chef for the afternoon was Made and he was excellent! Explained each ingredient and constantly laughing which was infectious. He had two other helpers who assisted in explaining how to chop/slice/grind our items. We cooked in pairs but there was constantly things to do.

All the food we cooked was delicious and Ketut made sure to involve himself in our lesson as well.

Handshakes and hugs all round on departure. 10/10.

“Awesome Experience With Ketut & His Team”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2017

We decided midday that we wanted to get into the 3PM cooking class. A quick email with an immediate response (literally within 5 minutes) and a driver was organised to pick us up in time for the class.
Unfortunately, because we did the afternoon class we missed out on the market visit as the markets close at 11AM - if you want to go to the market with Ketut definitely do the morning class.
Set out in a beautiful part of Ubud is where you cook, over looking rice fields.
Ketut and his team are brilliant! Incredibly friendly, and informative. Very, very funny!
You get to keep copies of the recipes and a certificate signed by Ketut!
We would definitely recommend doing this class with Ketut and his team!

“One more "5 star" experience with Ketut Budiasa!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2017

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!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2017 via mobile

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.
