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

My girlfriend and I did the cooking class a couple weeks ago and I do not know where to start. The people were amazing! So nice, so helpful and really treated us like family. The food we cooked was fresh and delicious. We were brought to the local fresh market, showed around the family house and learned about Balinese food, culture and history. I can not say enough about this! Was the best overall experience in Bali! By Stephen M

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

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

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

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 will love it!it's not a turistic stuff the real Bali!Makasi two neyman!!! By Nicoletta N

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 had a great experience with the K’dongding cooking class. At K’dongding you will not only improve your Indonesian cooking skills, but you will also learn a lot about the beautiful Balinese culture. We were picked up in the morning at 8:30 in Ubud and brought to a traditional Balinese market. Our guide Nyoman told us a lot about all the food and customs of the market. After that we went to the house compound of the K’dongding family where they live traditionally with all 43 family members. Nyoman showed us around and after that we started cooking in the beautiful cooking class studio. Nyoman took the time to explain everything very carefully. We had our own cooking station and after the explanation we could perform all steps ourselves. We made some delicious traditional Balinese dishes and after that we had lunch with Nyoman and Wayan, who is the head of the family. At 14:00 we were brought back to the hotel. For us this was a little late, the class could have been somewhat shorter. But besides this, we had a truly amazing experience. We learned a lot and enjoyed the enthousiasm with which the instructors tell and teach you about their heritage. Also a great place for vegetarians and vegans! By Iris B

So amazing to learn about Balinese culture, family dynamics, local market shopping, local delicacies and simplified way to cook Balinese cuisine. We ate what we made and so delicious. An excellent cooking class and Chef Nyoman was very informative and an amazing teacher. By FollowCecille

I have been traveling through Bali for almost two months and this has to be one of my favorite experiences so far. It is not just a cooking class, it is so much more. You get to a full culture experience. I have learned more from them than I have from anyone else. They will pick you up and drop you off from where you are staying! They were so kind and hands down the nicest people in the Ubud area. It was my boyfriends birthday and they went out of their way to make a cake and make us feel welcomed. I really love these guys!! If you are looking for a unique experience in Bali, you honestly need to do this!. By Julia R

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.
