In this version of our vegetarian cooking class, we offer you a market tour along with our organic farm visit. Pemulan Bali is one of the newest cooking and eating place on the island. The location is north of Ubud (around 30-40 minutes drive). Our farm is based on a community project to preserve organic farms and contribute to local people in the village.
What I liked: I really enjoyed being surrounded by so much greenery! It’s special to be so deep in nature, especially while you’re in Ubud. I also enjoyed that we cooked and learned all the dishes and made them all by hand in a relaxing environment.
What to know: This cooking class offers vegan and vegetarian classes and I would highly recommend this class to anyone with a special interest in organic produce.
Good for: People into the slow and natural life

Loved this cooking class! Wayan was an awesome instructor and we all enjoyed his humor as well. The menu was delicious (loved the vegetarian/vegan option!) and getting to cook in the middle of the farm was perfect! Definitely recommend this class!
Fresh food, individual approach, nice atmosphere and good instructors.
So much fun, and very easy! Loved going around the market and then going around the organic farm
It was all very well organised. Got an email to confirm time and place of pick up. Lovely to go around the local markets to learn about the herbs and spices, and tasting the local fruit. The food was lovely and easy to follow recipes. Also nice to go around be farm to harvest our own fruit and veg! Would totally recommend doing this!!
I think the cooking class was incredible. I love that it was at an organic farm in Bali, we got to pick our own produce and cook it. The guides were super informative and helpful. The food tasted amazing !! The only downfall was the car trip, it was long and the bus was extremely uncomfortable.
great experience, funny teacher! highly recommended! :)
Fantastic experience. Really learned all about the produce and how to create the exotic and complex flavours of home cooked Balinese food. Restaurant food has not tasted the same since! This was a really fun experience, very professionally delivered. Staff were fantastic. I would heartily recommend anyone to do this course.
Everything was fabulous. Market experience, explanations, patient teacher, helpful amiable staff, recipe books, aprons and the food! Delicious. And plenty to take away for my tea too. I will definitely be cooking some Balinese food at home - though may cheat and use a blender instead of pestle and mortar! Brilliant experience. Inspired. The only downside - I would have liked to cook the gorgeous banana pancakes.
We loved this class. Very well organised and ran like clockwork. But with humor and lots of very proffessional teaching. We learned a lot about Balinese cooking methods . The recipe books will be very useful. Highly recommended to both beginners and experienced cooks
El curso era genial y nos lo hemos pasado muy bien. Sin embargo, falta un poco de organización. Vinieron a recogernos media hora más tarde que la hora prevista y hemos vuelto dos horas mas tarde al hotel. Estaría bien actualizar los horarios en la pagina web.
Felt like a local on this tour. You get to explore a small farmers market before being whisked away to the middle of the jungle to cook beautiful dishes. The company was very organized, the guide Made had a great personality and the day was wonderful!
It was a really nice experience. Staff was professional with good teaching technics. The receipts were tasty. The tour of the organic farm to pick your vegetables is the real bonus comparing with the other classes. An improvement point for the staff could be to show more Smiles on their face but I Definetly recommand.
I loved everything about this experience. The market tour, picking our own veg, cooking and eating was even better than I expected! The staff were excellent, very good at teaching, sharing and supporting participats. I also loved that the School is a social enterprise, so you are cobtributing to a whole villages economic development.
Such a good cooking class, there was no desire for any of the instructors to rush us. Going through the local food market in the morning was such a good experience and tried so many different foods that I would never try in the first place! After picking fresh all of our ingredients it was amazing to use them all in our meals, made them taste so amazing and one of the best curries I've ever had!! Such a fun instructor, 100% recommended doing this. You get your money's worth.
Great story and relaxing atmosphere. Wayan was a great fun and a good story teller. I was there alone and they just coupled us up and we had great fun in our group. The organic permaculture farm is beautiful and so is the people 🤗 I'd would definitely book my self for another class when I'm back in Bali. Maria from Denmark
Very happy with my class, I'm very surprised how well they've manage to get market, farm and cooking class to get together including a very friendly and happy staff composition :) loved the history and my class. Thanks very much
This was an awesome cooking class. Ironically the food we cooked was probably the best Balinese food we had in Bali! I would highly recommend this class to anyone visiting the island. This is a great way to discover the local culture.
Market tour, farm walk around and fresh air cooking was awesome, our instructor was awesome too, spoke very good English and had plenty of willing support staff, so we had an awesome experience and highly recommend these guys
The whole experience was simply amazing! After we were picked up at our accomodation, we went to a market, where our instructor Made told us a lot about indonesian spices, fruits and vegetables (we also had the opprtunity to taste some of the fruits). On the farm we then picked greens on our own in the beautiful garden. We cooked five main dishes in groups of two, where we could choose between a vegetarian/vegan and a non-vegeterian option (I went there with three friends, so that all of us could taste both by two cooking vegetarian and two non-vegetarian) and a dessert with the whole class (about 14 people). The serving size was generous but the food was so delicious, that we were totally fine with it. Cooking was fun and thanks to Made not that difficult (we'll see if it's that easy, when we try the recipes at home:P). We absolutely enjoyed every part of the class. Tha staff was very friendly and helpful - thanks for the great service! I can only suggest it to everyone, who's in Ubud on holiday!
Wonderful setting. Instructor and experience is outstanding. Everyone should try this special day.
Amazing experience! We visited the market and spoke a bit about the fruits, and food sold there. Then we headed to the organic farm which is in a quaint village north of Ubud. We picked our vegetables and herbs from the garden, and began the cooking lesson there. Such a peaceful setting! And our teacher, Made, was very patient, friendly, and knowledgeable. The staff there were also so helpful and kind. Everything was so clean, and the presentation of the whole place and table is 5 star. Best part is the little book you get to take home, very well thought of!
I took the class last week, and it was absolutely an awesome class. The teacher was patient and could give a very detailed instruction. He took us to the market and then gave us a tour on the farm, so we could really feel the local atmosphere in the market and picked up the food we needed. All the staff there were friendly and helpful. It's difficult to find full vegetarian food or vegan food in Bali, so I was really impressed, but I do hope there could be more full vegetarian meals--- food without onions and garlic--- for people like me to learn. But anyway, it was a wonderful class, and I'll definitely come back again next time!
I participated the vegetarian cooking class three days ago, and it was fantastic! The teacher took us to the local market and we picked up the vegetables we needed in the organic farm. The environment was great, and the teacher and all the staff there were so friendly and helpful. The food was healthy and tasty. Everything was in good harmony. I enjoyed the class very much. Hopefully they will have more real vegetarian food (the food in their vegetarian class is mostly with onions and garlics). I'll definitely join the class again next time I come to Bali!
Here you find local people with warm hearth, open to introduce you to them culture and cuisine. I learned many things about them vegetat, fruits and receipts. I was also to other cooking classes, but this one is the best! Worth it!
We had a lovely time at Pemulan Bali. Made, our tourguide, and the whole staff were very helpful and friendly. We've experienced a wonderful local market tour with a lot of delicious vegan food. It's easy to change the vegetarian cooking class into a vegan one, so no problem here ;) You'll learn about local vegetables and fruit while visiting the market and the organic farm. Cooking was easy and help was always available. Thank you for a wonderful time and absolutely tasty food :) Great value, for a great price!
