Overview
Bali is renowned for its distinctive cuisine, and a cooking class is the ideal way to sample traditional Balinese dishes. Taking place in a local home, this private cooking class teaches you the secrets of Balinese home cooking and how to create a delicious lunch or dinner with your host, and a chance to sit down to enjoy a meal with the family.
Highlights
  • Experience Balinese culture and traditions in a local village
  • Create authentic home-cooked Balinese dishes
  • Private cooking class: adapt the menu to suit your preferences
  • Hassle-free hotel pickup and drop-off in a private vehicle
What to Expect
After hotel pickup, meet your hosts Dewa, Jero, and their family in a village north of Ubud. Explore, meet the locals, and visit orchards with exotic Balinese fruit and gardens growing herbs and spices, such as galangal, cloves, cacao, and nutmeg, used for both cooking and in traditional medicine. At Dewa’s family home, create an array of typical Balinese dishes using a traditional wood-fired oven. Get to see how real Balinese food is cooked and learn its importance to family life and celebrations. Make dishes, such as grilled tuna in banana leaves (pepes Ikan), chicken in a fresh turmeric and coconut milk sauce (bumbu kuning), and hand-ground corn fritters (bregedel), and pick up plenty of tips and tricks from Dewa and Jero. Finally, sit down to enjoy your home-cooked lunch or dinner with the family and experience the famous Balinese hospitality for yourself. End the tour with drop-off at your Ubud hotel.

Dewa was on time picking us up from our Ubud hotel. The ride out of town to his home was beautiful. He showed us the local garden and various plants along the way. The food we helped make was wonderful and by far the best we had in Bali. The whole experience was the best of our

We’re just coming back now from this tour and we can say with all certainty that it was one of the best, if not the best activity we’ve ever done in Asia. We were promptly picked up at our hotel at 9am and within 10 minutes driving, we arrived at the entrance of a small

Dewa's cooking class is an absolute must do during your stay in Ubud. More than just a cooking class, it is a very important lesson in Balinese culture and religion away from the bustling streets and markets of Ubud town. Dewa's village and home are peaceful havens. And Dewa
