We went on Sunday 1/3/2020.
We were picked up from the hotel at around 8.30am for the market tour. Unfortunately because of Kuningan festival, many of the food market stores weren't open but there was enough for Chef Made to show us what we needed to see.

We then went to the compound and met Ketut, who is a 'larger than life' presence and great fun. We were provided with a cool drink and a water bottle whilst we sat and waited for all attendees to arrive.

We got direction to make the basic foundation sauces peanut (Saus Kacang) and Base gede (bumbu bali). We chose to do both the vegetarian and non-vegetarian menus as there were two of us. We made a soup (cucumber and tomato or chicken), satays (chicken or tempe), fried chicken or vegetable curry, mie goreng (Balinese fried noodle). We got to make and eat all these dishes at the and were also able to eat the Kulak Pisang (Braised banana saba in palm sugar gravy) that was made by the staff.

We had a fun few hours, it was quite warm as the cooking area is open and standing over gas cook tops which give out a lot of heat. The staff made sure we had water and gave us reminders to wash hands and keep tidy.

This, for us, was an interesting day with simple recipes and dishes which we enjoyed as an introduction to Balinese cooking. The group was mixed in ages and also had a family with young children (under 15 people).

The staff were very attentive and supportive.

Would recommend this course for families, novice cooks, people wanting a fun introduction to Balinese cooking.

Wear good shoes and comfy clothing as you are standing for a couple of hours on concrete.

Starting the day, we were met with a gentleman who picked us up from our hotel and drove us to the market to give us an authentic Balinese market experience. Komang's knowledge of the spices and various local produce was outstanding!

Then we headed to the cooking school, where we were greeted by several extremely friendly staff, who showed us what we will be learning to cook and carefully showing us each step. I was amazed how tasty everything I cooked was by the end of the class!

Do yourself a favour and attend Ketut's Cooking Class!

I liked the master class very much! everyone in our group was very sweet and funny. But the most fun were Ketut, his family and assistants. They were constantly joking and at the same time deftly helping us. In the final, we had so much food that we couldn’t eat everything. And we got the author's recipes to try to cook everything at home.

Ketut, Marti and the team were hilarious, kind, and patient hosts for this once in a lifetime cooking class. We made so many dishes, and I left feeling full of not only food, but joy and appreciation for Balinese culture.
