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

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

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

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

This was a really great experience. Visiting the market first was a wonderful way to learn about local Balinese fruits and vegetables as well as getting a small taste of local life. The cooking class afterwards was amazing we made ourselves a banquet for lunch all of which was very good thanks to our wonderful teacher - I Dhono - his enthusiasm was infectious and I will definitely cook these recipes again at home. Throughly recommended. By cctechOxford

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

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

I have been to quite a few cooking schools before, but this experience was the best 'total' experience by far.
We were picked up at our hotel and given a short, but charming guided tour to the Payangan markets near Ubud.
We were met there by the most charming Balinese man we have ever met who took us on an amazing tour of his local market. Impeccable English and charm, Wayan Apel was incredible.
Then it got even better, our chef / guru was amazing, great English and wit.
The food creation was all hands on, in a wonderful kampung environment, you even get an insight into Balinese family life.
The food we made, with fresh bought local ingredients was sensational.
People of any cooking ability would find this amazing, and for us with some Asian cooking experience, we learnt a whole lot more.
Overall it was an amazing full day experience for less than 40 bucks which includes transport and lunch ......amazing.

I would highly recommend this as a must do Ubud experience, particularly for those who love to keep coming back to Ubud. By docrob_aust

I can leave the first reference for K'DongDing. I wanted to find some activity which show me the balinese culture. I decided to take traditional cooking class. It was my very best experience during my stay in Ubud. I learned a lot about balinese culture, cuisine and i had the best balinese recepices. I really enjoyed this day with Dhono. He is a really good chef and intresting person, i really felt myself at home. If you want to know better the balinese culture I recommend you to take K'DongDing cooking class. Have a nice stay in Ubud! By Csilla S

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.
