Great food, great crew. Spent some of the best hours of my life there! Cooking was so much fun and the farm is beautiful! A must-do!
The people we’re friendly and their English was good! The location is very beautiful and it’s sk cool that you can harvest your own food! The food was the best i’ve had so far. It was one of the most fun days of my travels!
We are a farmer-chef duo and were looking for a tasty organic cooking adventure where we would be immersed in Balinese life.
The team at Pemulan Balinese Farm Cookery school were the most warm and welcoming hosts. We were stunned by the gorgeous open aired bamboo kithen nestled amongst their organic farm.
We were on the homestay course and visited the bustling food market, where our guide led us round explaining and sharing the food stories and qualities.
We then picked produce on the farm, where each plant was identified and discussed. We had never seen tumeric and ginger growing! Then led to the kitchen where warming ginger tea and coffee awaited us.
The next few hours saw us cook 5 authentic Balinese dishes with guidance from our chef. Each dish was explained and how we could recreate at home using UK ingredients. In 2 sittings we enjoyed our meals (with others in the class), each mouthful was packed with fresh flavour. It was utterly delicious.
Our homestay family was so welcoming and kind, and we sat with Wayan our guide chatting about Balinese culturen into the night.
For anyone into food, or just looking for a serene calming space to collect their thoughts while learning a new skill then look no further, Pemunal Bali Farm Cooking School is the place for you.
Lots of UK love

I was traveling alone with my two children, age 5 and 3, so I was a bit doubtful if the whole plan would work for us. Luckily I gave myself a go and booked the afternoon class via the website-enquiry and fine-tuned it via whatsapp. I intentionally skipped the market tour because of my experience a day ago in Ubud market, where the children were dazzled, amazed and crazed of all the hustle-bustle of market life and colours. It could have easily delayed the cooking class group.
The free pick up made everything very comfortable for us. We drove through villages and lush greenery and came to a farm with a well organized staff. I was fortunate to join a group of friendly people who easily and eagerly „„babysitted“ at least one of my two kids (thanks Meg from down under). But the staff accommodated both of them likewise. It was raining cats and dogs and the footpaths through the farm tend to be slippery. But it was the best thing to do and that in a place with a great venue. All the vegetables were freshly picked from the farm, the equipment and utensils neatly arranged and the cooking procedures well explained. The recipes were well selected and of good variety. If not the best cooking class in Bali, then at least one of the best. If you come with children of similar age, take spare clothes along. The 5 year old did three dishes, the three year old one. But they had a lot of fun picking the veggies and feeding the chickens. I paid the kids fee for both but it was worth it.
my bali farm cooking experience was very informative.I really learn a lot since we are just a small group.The food was good and even the utensils used was very interesting...the weather was also good because it rain so its cool and cozy...
“Perfect Farm and Cooking Experience!!”
My sister and I knew coming to Bali we wanted to take a cooking class. After looking into a few we settled on this one because of the organic farm aspect, and I’m glad we did!! From the market tour to picking and learning about the numerous plants on the farm (many of which I had never actually seen growing before), this class was extra special. We then went on to cook 5 different dishes and a dessert. They had the option to chose a vegetarian menu, which was perfect for me. I highly recommend this class!Allison W
“A must do in Ubud! Will change the way you look at Indonesian food (in a good way)”
All organizational items were five stars, transport, music, guide, etc etc. Being able to walk around the true organic farm and pick the herbs and veg yourself, then cook it, then eat it is a great experience.Qeaou
“True Balinese experience, Hands-on”
After much research I decided to book this cooking class among so many others due of the added market and the organic farm visit. It turns out to be a great choice choosing this cooking school.
Disclaimer: if you are truly princess and do not like to get into the farm and country side maybe this is not for u. A lot of hands on and getting hands dirty. But it’s worth it.WonderGey
