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

Day in a life of Balinese, taste of food culture history and family life. Amazing experience learned so much. By Tembeka M

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

You can't tell to have been in Bali if you don't spend some days in Ubud!!but you can't say to have visit Ubud if you haven't cooked real balinese food with nyoman in his family house!the best balinese food of our holiday (And cooked by ourselves!!) And before the class we have had a tour in a traditional market to know all the ingredients of the recipes! But above all you will feel like a part of the nyomang family!i really suggest this cooking class experience..you will love it!it's not a turistic stuff ..is the real Bali!Makasi two neyman!!!

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

This outdoor Balinese cooking class, held in a family compound in Ubud was a great hands on experience. From the market to the plate we were involved in all aspects of the process, creating an awesome 5 course meal for ourselves. A lot of education on local produce, fantastic friendly staff and beautiful food to finish off with. Highly recommended!! By butzo

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

We attended the local market to see the various ingredients.

Followed by being welcomed into the family compound by Twinky the cutest dog.

The cooking school is well set up. We cooked a great menu with a few additions for food we'd inquired about.

The food was delicious and plentiful (we couldn't eat all of it).

Thanks to our wonderful chefs. By Maranne O

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

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

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.
