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

One of the best experiences of my time in Bali!! Would highly recommend doing this cooking class! The morning walk through the market was awesome, tasting and talking and learning fruits and vegetables I've never seen before!! So relaxed, felt very comfortable! Nothing was a problem! Very Hands on course! Not only did we learn some Balinese dishes we learnt a little about the culture as well! Balinese family are very different to mine! Such a great teacher! If I am ever back in ubud I would go and learn some more recipes! Would have to say one of my favorite feeds in Bali! And I cooked it! Can't wait to try the dishes out for my family and friends when I get home! Even left with a certificate! By Carlie1984

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

What a great day! Starting with a market tour of a traditional market with all the different types of foods, how they are grown and brought to market. Lessons about how to choose the right vegetables, what to look for in good vs bad. Then it was back to the families (very old and very traditional) compound for more lessons in Balinese culture, customs, foods and lastly preparation techniques. This was great for me coming from the USA to see how the homesite was arranged into different areas and their purposes. Learning not only what to mix and chop but HOW to mix and chop was key! Timing is everything, and they did a fantastic job of keeping us perfectly on task, and getting everything done correctly, and seamlessly. And the food we made was delicious! Everything came out perfect! It was so much more than a good cooking experience! It was a good Balinese experience! By ent_doc_martin

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

What a special experience! Unlike most (if not all) cooking classes in Bali, with Kdongding you get to cook ALL of the 5 dishes yourself, in your own stove and cooking station. Because of this, you can then easily remake it at home, bc you've done everything! :) All of the menu is traditional Balinese food. You also do an extensive tour of a traditional market.

The classes take place inside Wayan and Nyoman's family complex, which means you also get to learn the structure of a traditional Balinese family complex. The cooking space is impeccably clean, spacious and fresh...and of course, everyone is warm and friendly, and they try to make it as enjoyable as possible! HIGHLY recommended. Member of

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

We visit this local cooking school courtesy of our guide, Mully of Noosa Bali Tours, as part of our Balinese food tour. It was interesting to find such an establishment located in a family home complete with vegetable gardens, fruit orchards and free range chickens.

While we did not participate in a cooking class, we were offered a cooking demonstration. The chef shared insights into basic Balinese spices and demonstrated their use in various savory dishes. We also exchanged notes about several local desserts and recipes.

At the end of the demonstration, we were treated to a variety of dishes including satay, soup, curry, rice, pancake rolls and banana fritters. We enjoyed this opportunity to learn more about Balinese culture through its cuisine and ingredients. By livingroundtheworld

Today by boyfriend and I enjoyed a private experience with the team at KDongDing. Starting with a friendly pick up from our villa, we went to the local markets where our awesome guide explained all not only about the food but also the cultural significance behind everything. After our intimate market experience we took a short drive to the family compound where the cooking class would take place. This family environment made the class really special, seeing a genuine Balinese home, so many smiling faces:)
The area for the cooking class takes place is very well equipped with modern stoves, the facilities really are top notch! After out welcome drink we were lead through 5 different recipes. Very interactive chopping, cooking, tasting... I was in food heaven! After we finished all the cooking we sat in the beautiful garden and ate our creations! The whole experience was amazing. A real insight into the traditional food and culture of our wonderful Balinese host.
I would commend this to every one! Can not be faulted!!!! By Vadawn

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.
