Our course is started with morning Payangan market to take advantages of cooler outdoor temperature for shopping, preparing and cooking. In Bali Markets are mostly opened early in the morning as perishable foods are at their peak. The traditional market is a great place to introduce students to Balinese culture and lifestyle. Your guide will explain about Balinese taste and customs, local meat, fish and other products, finding ingredients and unique way of bargaining in Balinese-style. Touring a traditional outdoor market provides experience how Balinese people spend their time before Cooking's. These processes are as important as those in the kitchen.
Arrived at the Balinese compound house you are welcomed with local coffee or tea by the culinary team of our cooking class.
Students are taught to process the food with modern traditional utensils and techniques. Paste and sauce preparations is one of the most interesting and important aspects of Balinese cooking, with two types of way bumbu bali preparations, chopped on wooden chopping block and ground in a stone mortar before being cooked in a variety of ways of Balinese dish. All prep work and cooking are HANDS-ON experiences, performed almost entirely by our participants.

Very happy I took this class. The instructor and his cousin were excellent. Everything was well explained and every step of the recipe was hands on. Very educational tour of the market and the family compound. Nyoman is well travelled and can explain alternate ingredients to find where you live.
Loved every moment of the class
The cooking class not just a wounderful food experienece but also gave great insights into the local and family life of Balinese people. Thanks for the wonderful time!
This was an amazing experience and we can't recommend it enough. The tour of the market was really interesting and much better than others we have done in Thailand. When we arrived at the family compound we were shown around and introduced to some of the family. We got to sample some of the family's coffee and homemade Balinese cakes. The cooking was great, we each had our own station and made every dish before sitting down to a delicious lunch. This is so much more than just a cooking class, it's an insight into the life of a local Balinese family.
It was just wonderful - we had a really good & funny time during the class. And the food was amazing! This is a MUST DO when you're visiting Bali. Thanks to the KDongding Crew and the whole family, they are all so friendly.
