I loved the cooking class so much! Felt welcome from the moment I stapped into the family home and became a part of my Balinese family. It was just me in the class but that was no problem and I got all the attention and they explained all the ingredients and steps I had to take. The food wa delicious and I can’t wait to make some dishes back home from my family! Thanks again for everything!!
Such a good experience start to finish. Lovely welcoming family, so cultured and the food was amazing!
We had a great time at the family home of the owners where the cooking class was held. They explained every ingredient and more at the market and treated us as normal guests at their home and were so full of humour. At the end they provide you with the recipes. We would recommend Jambangan Cooking class to everyone who visits Ubud and wants to get away from the hectic city life for a while.
Had a great time learning about Balinese food and cooking our own to samples to taste. Everything was so delicious and fresh. I can't wait to recreate these dishes at home!
My parents and I had the best time learning about the local cuisine. The food was fresh and delicious.
From the time of pickup to drop off at our Ubud villa, they were welcoming, professional yet fun and shared lots of knowledge. We had a great group of fellow cooks from around the world which was also lovely. The menu was varied and could easily be made to suit those with preferences or restrictions. They welcomed us into their family home which was a wonderful experience to see how locals have traditionally and still live. Really enjoyed the day and highly recommend it.
The class was amazing. Great way to understand the Balinese menu. We can’t wait to try the recipes at home !
I have done a couple of cooking classes before. This was by far the best. I loved going to the market; where the locals go and finding out about the ingredients there. I recognized some, but previously, I had never had the courage to enquire about them. I know I will go and happily buy these ingredients and cook with them. I really liked the sort of food we cooked; normal family stuff. On previous cooking classes I’d done, the food was quite fancy and nothing I have ever tried to recreate. I would highly recommend this cooking class..... you’ll leave stuffed of good honest food.
The team were so friendly, funny and welcoming. The market trip was really interesting and we learnt a lot and got to try some new food! The cookery school itself is at the family home and we loved seeing this and learning more about Balinese traditions. The cookery class itself was informative and the ladies leading it were so funny! We had a great time. The food we cooked was also delicious! I should also say that they were and a kind and lovely family who helped us out too wheny sister left her phone. Thank you for having us!
We were made to feel very welcome by the host family We were taken on a tour of the local food markets and drove thru some rice paddy’s while the driver explained about the rice growing process and the foods we saw at the market The cooking class was suitable for all ages with our two teenagers participating with no problem We got to eat the food we prepared and were given the recipes to take home I would recommend this class without hesitation it was a great experience we feel we understand Balinese culture better after this class
Nous avons passé un très bon moment avec cette famille. C'est avec convivialité et sympatie que nous avons décourvert la cuisine Balinaise, dans un lieu authentique et plein de charme. Super du début jusqu'à la fin : le tour du marché, la découverte des produits, l'accueil, et surtout la mise en pratique culinaire! On à tres bien mangé, en très bonnes quantité. Nous sommes même reparti avec notre doggy bag. En deux mots : savoureux et dépaysant. Merci encore. Noemie et Cécile
Great experience very nice family who host the event We enjoyed the market tour and the cooking class Looking forward to trying the recipes when we get home It was a good family event and both of our teenagers enjoyed it as well
Obviously these cooking classes are directed to tourists, so there's always this kind of entertainment part attached to it but having said that this was a great experience meeting all my expectations. Putu was just lovely taking us to the market and the rice fields giving a lot of insight about local life. Being able to enter their family home as the location for the class was also great! The cooking was guided but felt way more independent than I experienced it in another cooking class in Thailand. The recipes covered the Balinese favorites and in our case we're adapted to a vegetarian diet. We liked the experience and would recommend the course.
The family was truely wonderful! The place is very clean and we had excellent explanations. Bathroom was spotless and sanitary precautions taken when preparing food. (asked about allergies and if we were vegitrian and spice level we could handle ) Diver was right on time and safe.
What a wonderful experience! We were so lucky to be welcomed into Rakesh's family home for this cooking experience. The whole family played a role, from preparing offerings to demonstrating how we should cut each of the different spices, all culminating in 8 delicious dishes!! They were also very accommodating and ensured that my peanut allergy was catered for!! 10/10 would recommend to everyone's I know!
Had an amazing time ! Great service, learned a lof of new recipes and adorable people ! I recommend
Our taxi which picked us up from our hostel was on time. After that we were at a big market where we could see all the local food. Our cooking class was very great! The host is very friendly and funny. We were 8 persons, which was quite ok for this class. We cooked around 8 dishes. (1 starter, 6 main dishes, 1 dessert) everyone was involved in different steps of cooking. Water was free and after we cooked all the dishes we sit together and enjoyed our meal. Highly recommended!
We had a really Nice afternoon cooking the best from the Balinese kitchen! It was a real great experience for us! You het the recipes to take home!! Go for it!!
A wonder step into un-curated Bali, a family business that leave you feeling part of the family and lots of fun too! A must while in Ubud!!!
A bit of activity with the cooking, tour of the market, walk through of a Balinese housing complex and overview of how to make coconut oil! Very chill and relaxing while informative and tasty.
I really enjoyed the class. There was a good amount of active time cutting and blending the ingredients and making the sauces. The food was delicious and the family was so friendly.
This class is very interesting if you want to know how a Balinese house is, the class is inside one! It's very original and you get the sense of the culture and how they organize the houses. The food was really good, although was a bit fast to follow if you don't have experience cooking.
Great hosts in their own Balinese home. A trip to an authentic local market. Everyone gets to take part and cook and the end results are amazing! Thank you
One of the highlights of my time in ubud. Food tasted amazing! Everything was made from fresh/ natural ingredients. Family was so lovely and welcoming. Couldn't praise this class enough.
Very nice cooking class, where we had the opportunity to see not only the food but also the daily life of Balinese people. They were kind enough to pick me up from the hotel even if it was slightly outside Ubud, and the drive for he house is gorgeous, through the rice plantation. The hosts were kind and open. Definitely go for the morning class, which includes a visit to the local market.
Great experience with very good and tasty food!!! Simona and Greg
The class takes place at a family home. The hosts are very welcoming. Everything is well organised. You make 8 dishes within the time. Lots of opportunity to try many Balinese dishes. Lots of fun! Would reccomend to anyone staying in Bali. Pick up and drop off service is great also.
Would recommend it to everyone who wants to learn something about the balinese culture and the food! Very sweet family;)
From minute one till the last everything was absolutely great. We got picked up from the hotel and afterwards full and stuffed with the best food droped off. The balinese framily we cooked with was adorable, very welcoming, friendly and they know how go prepare the best dishes. Also we learned a lot about rice and how the balinese people live. If I could I would repeat class right away and this is why I highly recommend it to you. This was a lot of text but here comes a little more for "good luck" :p Thanks again for the great day and all the tips how to make these delicious meals back home.
It was a noce place and friendly people. Food was great and my personal highlight was the cute white bunny which hoppled freely around.
The cooking class was perfect. The family seemed genuinely delighted. We participated in every step, we got to prepare, cooked and enjoyed what we've cooked. My kids were encouraged to help as well. They were so excited and enjoy it a lot. Then, we finally got to experience completely authentic Balinese flavors.
Great experience cooking in a traditional Balinese home. Good instruction, warm welcome and recipe provided. The food they taught us was super tasty. It was also fantastic since we had a chance during the meal to sit and talk about their Balinese culture. This is absolutely a must for any travellers.
