    Great fun and learning experience.
    Fantastic experience with the cooking class. We had such and enjoyable time - both culinarily and culturally as we were walked through the market and later in family’s Balinese compound. Explanations about the food and family structure were great and English was impeccable.

    Must do cooking class while in Bali
    A MUST DO cooking class while in Bali. Ayu, the host, teaches Balinese culture before the cooking class. Ayu is funny, sweet and keeps you engaged the entire time. Her home is immaculately maintained from the gardens to the cooking area. The finished meal was amazing and it was also a great way to meet other foreigners - everyone got along well. Mi highly recommend this experience.

    Must do when in Ubud
    What an amazing experience not only did we get to experience the Indonesian kitchen we also learned a lot about the Indonesian culture! Early in the morning we were picked up at our hotel to go and visit the local market, here we got an entire tour of all the different ingredients commonly used in the Indonesian kitchen. Afterwards we got back into the car and went to the compound were the family lives. They showed us around and told us about their family and culture. After the introduction the cooking class started, in total we needed to prepare 9 dishes. This sounds like a lot but all went quite fast due to the guidance we got! After the cooking we had lunch togethr. All in all, it was an extremely fun experience! Definitely a must do when in Ubud! Again thx to Ayu and her family!

    Do not miss this!
    We booked this cooking class through our villa - oh my goodness what a find! We were picked up from our villa just outside of Ubud and collected another couple before heading to the central market where we were taken through and explained local ingredients and cooking methods. Then we were off to the cooking school - it was so well run, explained, clean, and most importantly DELICIOUS! I would HIGHLY recommend and would love to return! Thank you 🙏🏼 🤍

    Culture, Storytelling and Cooking Experience
    Ayu is absolutely phenomenal at what she does! This experience was the best cultural experience and more than a cooking. Ayu is an amazing storyteller that is willing to share her culture and food. One of my favorite experiences on the trip. Just do it! You won't regret it!

    Thanks from Monica & Mom in the USA.
    This Ubad Ubud cooking class is an exceptional experience ! The cultural knowledge, marketplace introduction, and organized cooking class, is handled, very efficiently, and professionally, while having fun and light heartedness. The entire family is involved and each one treats you with love and care. This cooking class is one of my many highlights while visiting Bali for 30 days with my daughter Monica. Wishing you all continued success !

    Best Cooking Class Ever!
    This was an amazing surprise!! The cooking school is the main attraction but listening to the family about Balinese living was just as fascinating. The whole place is spotless and very well organized. Learning about Balinese cooking with the freshest ingredients was incredible. I would 100% recommend this excursion to anybody in Ubud. We started at 830am and left at 200pm. Do yourself a favour and support this locally owned business!

    Truly magical cultural and culinary experience
    Simply one of our all time favourite experiences in Ubud. Ayu’s warm welcome with a refreshing drink and an explanation of the family compound, tradition and legacy was very insightful. What a privilege it was to share her family pavilion style home. If you’ve never experienced a place like this, you should go just for the Balinese indoor/outdoor pavilion architecture. Century old stonework, framing walkways between pavilions, all set in a magical secret garden. Ayu’s detailed cooking instructions made the experience enjoyable and accessible. The precision clockwork logistics in balancing cooking with resting and eating during the class, ensured everyone could fully participate without discomfort. Most importantly, savoring the dishes we prepared in the dining pavilion was an absolute delight—authentic Balinese food with fresh herbs, spices, vegetables and proteins. We highly recommend Ayu's cooking classes to anyone looking for a very authentic cultural and culinary experience.

    Family with kids loved this!
    Brilliant from start to finish. Our family of five had a blast - the kids were a little reticent but were quickly engaged and participated with interest and excitement. The coordination of the class was remarkable - everything is carefully choreographed to maximise your time and enjoyment. The lunch at the end was perfect. A top cultural experience for our family!

    Authentic cooking class & market tour
    This is an authentic, Balinese cooking experience. We went to the produce markets and learned so much about the herbs, spices and vegetables. Then we learned & created 8 delicious meals including delicious peanut satay sauce, Gado Gado, soup, stew and salads. All of this in the beautiful home of Ayu & Made. Ayu’s cheeky sense of humour will delight you and draw you in to this unique culture. Create some new food memories at Ubad Ubud cooking class

I went to visit Made for healing. It was an interesting experience. I couldn’t help but notice there were 3 puppies running around his home ( where he did his healing - so on his property)The mother of the puppies was drinking from a dried up water fountain and one of the three puppies vomited in front of me. This was just after the New Year, it was extremely hot and humid. When we arrived we were offered cold water from the fridge ( you can see the fridge from the waiting area) .
And all the dogs had no drinking bowl to drink from. I looked!
I asked Made wife who provide water to us ‘where do the dogs drink from) and she pointed to the dried up water fountain. I said it wasn’t clean or sufficient and the puppies couldn’t reach. She then offered a bowl of fresh water from the fridge for the puppies. Please can everyone help to educate so we can help theses innocent animals, when you visit Made please remind them their dogs are not just for publicity)m they have needs too and there is also a free desexing program in Ubud run by BAWA who will pick up the dogs desex for free and return the dogs back. Why isn’t this happening in Made spiritual sanctuary? He makes enough money $30 per person 😳🤔

Couldn’t recommend this experience more!!! We were picked up from our villa, and there was standstill traffic, our driver kindly called his family and they sent bikes to pick us up so we didn’t run later than we were! To top off the great start the cooking experience was amazing. Being welcomed into the family home and given an overview of Balinese culture made it feel extra special. Not to mention, the food we made we got to eat and it was delicious. I can’t fault it, thank you so much.

We had the best time at this cooking class! We were picked up from our Seminyak Hotel then treated to the local markets (only for locals) then taken to their house for the cooking class. We were welcomed warmly and given a cold drink on arrival. We were educated about the Balinese way of life, their culture and traditions. Our host
was funny and her English was very good. She made the entire experience an absolute pleasure. The cooking facilities were clean and modern however you are outside undercover and there was still a lot of tradition. So don’t expect stainless steel bench tops! We made 9 dishes and they were happy to accommodate to any health requests. This was a highlight of our trip! Completely worth doing!!!

We had a wonderful experience. We loved learning about the Balinese customs and traditions and then participated in an interactive, educational and fun cooking class. Afterwards we enjoyed the delicious meal. We happen to be vegetarian and they were very accommodating and kept meat/chicken/fish separate.

My girlfriend and I had the most amazing time at the cooking class.
After being picked up from our accomodation we enjoyed a walk through the local market.
Then we were taken to the our cooking class where we warmly met by Omang. What an absolute sweetheart she was! Her boyfriend and herself made us feel like we were with old friends.
The cooking class was excellent , the food was delicious. We especially enjoyed the sticky black and white pudding for dessert.
Would recommend this activity highly to anyone.

Absolutely amazing experience! Loved every moment of it. The lovely hosts made us feel very welcome and explained lots about the traditional Balinese culture as well as the meals we cooked and the ingredients we used. The meals were incredible and it was rewarding making everything from scratch. Definitely recommend this experience to everyone that wants to have a traditional Bali experience, it's totally worth it! We felt like we were part of the family. Thank you so much!

Timely pickup, very informative walk through the traditional market - loads of information. Greeted with a cold drink and a chat about Balinese life and culture. Cooking was really good fun, learnt a lot about spices and their medicinal uses. Cold water and bathrooms (very clean). We got eat all our hard work and it was lovely..

Meticulously clean through the cooking areas and hand washing and food prep gloves were used.
