What I liked: You'll learn about the main ingredients used to make Balinese dishes, general cooking tips and a range of common techniques used in Balinese cooking. The poultry is juicy and the spices are fragrant! We made a total of 10 mouthwatering menu items, we couldn't wait to feast on. The braised pork in sweet soy sauce was incredible! The class was educational and easy to follow. Highly recommend!

Chef Bagus and his team were very professional. The market trip was an eye opener. All of the food was amazing, hopefully I can reproduce something like that when I get home
Such a fun and informative experience! Chef Bagus is super knowledgable and kept us engaged and interested from the start until the end. Everything was perfectly organized and hygienic. The food we made was beautiful, can't wait to try cooking it at home! Definitely a 5 star experience and will highly recommend it to anyone who comes to Bali.
Picked up from our hotel and taken to a local market. Explained some of the different produce that we don’t have in Australia. Chef Bagus was very entertaining, informative and included us all in the preparation of 10 traditional Balinese dishes. The experience was topped off with enjoying a yummy lunch of the dishes we’d prepared and dropped back to our hotel. Can not recommend highly enough. Would do it again in a heartbeat!
Great tour of the market, friendly guide with great local knowledge. Cooking class with chef was awesome, friendly, funny and educational. The food we made was amazing and so was the knowledge shared by the chef , both on the food and local traditions. I could not recommend this enough one of our families highlights of Bali
Chef Bagus knows what he’s doing. The tour guides are inviting and kind. The food is AMAZING!!!!!!! The flavours and spices really compliment each other. Even on the market tour we learnt so much.
Chef Bagus is well experienced and taught everything in detail keeping the class more interactive.
