We had a great day with Nyoman during this cooking class.
Tour starts with a visit to the local market. Then you are invited to their authentic Balinese compound home where they have an open kitchen with plenty of pits, pans, and cooking utensils. You will learn to cook 5 different Balinese dishes.

The best thing is that the class is interesting for people with all levels of experience in cooking.
Nyoman has a great deal of knowledge about ingredients and where to get them when your are home or how to replace them.

And most important this class is about happy cooking! Why cook if it's no fun?

All in all a great cooking class that we would book again without doubt!

Thanks Nyoman! By David T

My friends and I recently had a great time at the KDongDing cooking school. From the traditional market visit to the experience at the family Balinese home, all was perfect! The cooking facilities are in a nice quiet area, and very clean. Besides learning to cook some real Balinese food, you also feel very welcome, and part of their family. (All the staff are from the same family).

I highly recommend this activity!! By Stephen B

My first cooking class and it was amazing. Starts off with a trip to the market. Wayan Apple is a fantastic guide. Took us through the different market stalls explaining the different kinds of produce. We get to touch, smell and taste. Then an insight into the Balinese household and way of life. The chef was fantastic, walking us through the ingredients and steps of each of the 5 course menu that we cooked ourselves. Which we get to sit down to enjoy at the end. Amazing flavours and one of the best experiences. I would definitely recommend this to all my friends as a must do in Ubud. By Siriyoc

this was the one experience that exceeded our expectation at every turn. The class is held in a beautiful home with extensive and serene gardens. The chef and his staff were charming, patient, very skilled and funny. You start with coffee and treats and a traditional gift. Then you really learn and make an amazing 5 course meal. At the end you enjoy the food you prepared.We then toured the grounds and met the families and their sweet roosters, chickens, cow, pig, kittens and pup. So fun! My 8 year old and teenager boys loved it too. By CrowdFundDiva

I went to attend the cooking demonstration and I had such a great time. We had a great time with Nyoman, our chef who took us through the process with patience and grace. The cooking area is spotlessly clean and the energy here is lovely. We learnt how to make meatball curry, pancakes with pandanus leaf extract and palm sugar and chicken satay. The recipes allowed for a little tweaking and the management took my dietary requirements into account as I am on a gluten free and sugarfree diet. I highly recommend experiencing the joy of Balinese cooking at Kdong Ding. Feel free to come here with a bunch of friends or your family and dont forget to bring a hearty appetite. The class is affordable and packs in quite a lesson. I cant wait to be back.Thank you. By Jia S

I literally have no words to describe how good this restaurant was. Good attention, fabulous food, excellent drinks and it has a really good mood!
The price isn't too high if you have a decent budget, it is expensive to the prices of the country through, I'm taking about eight or ten USD per person, but the dishes really worth it!!
If you go you'll have no regrets at all! By Asmahan d

What an amazing way to spend my last day in Bali! This was definitely the best cooking classes I have ever done. I really enjoyed the tour of the markets in the morning and understanding more about the vegetables and fruits grown in Bali. A lot of the ingredients we also used in our cooking. I loved how friendly Apples and Mr Black were and that I got to prepared and cooked food with them in their family home and meet some of their family. I'm vegetarian so i was so happy that I got to cook Balinese vegetarian food and it was so so tasty! I would totally recommend you to do this cooking classes - I was definitely one of my highlights of Bali. By Grimmerl

My friend and I had an amazing cooking experience with chef Nyoman and his family! We were able to ask all our questions and the food was very tasty! I really recommend to do this cooking class and to experience more of the Balinese culture. By Lise v

KDongDing cooking class is amazing! They are professional and treat you to the real Balinese experience. From the market to the compound to the class every moment was amazing! I would definitely do this again! You don't only learn about how to cook Balinese food, you learn about the traditions, cultures and about the food itself! By Cayy_Jorgy

Booking was made directly online with the class with prompt responses.
We chose this class because participants cooked each of the 5 courses by themselves. We were taken by the class' driver to the local market where we were met by Chef Nyoman Mahendra. As expected, the market was a far cry from the farmers' markets at home but it provided insight into the daily Balinese living. Nyoman pointed out the fruits, vegetables, and spices used in Balinese cooking and their healthy aspects.
We were then driven to the class which was held in the family's compound. It houses 43 family members and has hosted wedding guests numbering in the hundreds and a thousand. At the back were fields where the family grows rice, coffee, fruits, and vegetables. We met smiling, gracious family members.
Over tea and snacks, Nyomon spoke of his island's culture, customs, and Hinduism. He was informative, interesting, and entertaining. Having worked on cruise ships, his command of English is excellent.
Nylon's class emphasized easy and healthy Balinese cooking. The 4 of us were the only students. We made a salad, soup, Chicken satay, and curry tofu (all made with the basic spice mixture-all tasting different and delicious) and palm sugar and coconut crepes. We chopped, diced, and cooked at our individual stations which were clean and well organized. We seasoned to our taste.
The resulting lunch was more than we could eat.
We left with a booklet of receipes and instructions on replacement ingredients that we can find at home.
It was a fun and relaxing time even for the non-cook among us. By rosely88

Jukut Urab, a Favorite Menu of Balinese People

This jukut urab offers a good flavor and is easy to prepare. It is called jukut urab because the spices are mixed together with vegetable before serving, not during the cooking.
