I’ll start off by saying that this was easily one of my favorite and most memorable parts of our vacation in Bali. My wife and I love cooking at home, but more often than not we end up cycling through the same meals/recipes we’ve done numerous times before. This cooking class has given us inspiration to try a few new things in the kitchen, pushing us towards Indonesian and fusion flavors.Regardless of where you’re staying in Bali, I encourage you to take this class. We stayed at the very southern peninsula of Bali in Nusa Dua, so the ride to Ubud was 30+ minutes in addition to the 20-30 minutes from Ubud to the farm itself, but every second was worth it. The market visit was a lot of fun. Seeing fruits and vegetables that were familiar, variations of what you may be used to, or just plain weird was great. Bring a little bit of cash with you if you want to take some tasty treats back with you.The farm itself is beautiful. It’s a totally organic farm, so anything on the grounds is safe to pick and eat right then and there. The assortment of vegetables grown here is really quite beautiful. The guide and cooking instructors are extremely knowledgeable of their crops and their western counterparts/substitutes if you don’t have access to the exact plants used.Of course, the class itself was the highlight of the entire experience. Getting hands-on with the veggies you just picked on the farm makes it all real. The kitchen area is covered, but you’re outdoors facing the beautiful farm. The instructions were clear and the recipes are great for beginners and experienced cooks alike. All of the flavors were vibrant and each dish was more delicious than the last. The staff was eager to help and accommodating; you could tell they loved sharing Balinese culture through the cuisine.My only regret, if you could even call it a regret, was not taking more photos and videos! That’s how engaging the class was, which isn’t even a complaint for me. I hope that everyone visiting Bali takes the time to experience this class.
I had a great day at the Balinese Farm Cooking School. Everything was well organised. Market vist was extremely interesting. Cooking with an international group of people was much fun and the food was delicous.
The cooking class was amazing. I really liked our visit at the market inside the village ,
Maybe one of the most autenthic experiences that I had in Bali.
Our guide, which was also our teacher for the cooking class, explained many things around the market.
Of course was funny to pick up some vegetables directly from the morther earth in the farm and making our first sambal.
All is well organized starting from the pick up at my place in Ubud until the time that we spent for cooking and eating.
I really love that they give us the receipt book.
If I should recommend something to improve this experience: i think that will be nice if the teachers join the group to have the lunch together, maybe sharing also habits of the balinese people around cooking.
We have had the most amazing time and the staff, location and food was wonderful. A very different way of experiencing Bali. Absolutely loved it and can only recommend it.
We had a geeat experience and cooled delicious food while learning so much about the local farming. Our guide was also very nice and always had a smile on his face. We would do it again anytime and would recommend it to everyone! 🙂
“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
