This cooking class was such a good time! Couldn’t recommend this experience anymore! Thank you for the amazing morning.
I am forever grateful for such a great class . So humbled that Chef Bagus and his team made such a wonderful class for us . Highly recommend that this is a must do on your trip to Bali .
The people who are working there, they we‘re are all welcoming and lovely. I loved the food and the way we cooked it. It was all good explained and you‘re able to do 80% by your own. All in all it was an amazing experience!
If you’re looking for an exotic experience and to actually learn about Bali culture, communicate with the locals, this is the place for you. In the class not only we get to learn how to cook Balinese local food, they also taught us what to make as an offering to god in Balinese culture, which I found very interesting! Also I really appreciate how they would make personal adjustments with the menu without us even asking. Because me and my mother are Chinese and therefore they suggested to take out the original recipe with stir fried noodles and replace it with more Balinese food, very thoughtful of them! The only downside was there were some mosquitoes on site, which was not a huge problem considering what the class has offered. Overall amazing experience!
Chef bagus cooking class was great! Lots of hands on experience, and an entertaining class that I would highly recommend 😊
Chef Bagus is a natural teacher who mixes serious cooking skills with a lot of fun. The whole team helped us by prepping and cleaning up as we went along. Best activity my whole holiday.
Taste of Bali is located in the Jimbaran area, just off one of the main road. Step inside to a traditional Balinese setting, where you sit and create an offering before your cooking class. We were the only 2 booked into the class, so it was more like a private class just built for us. Start with the base of all Balinese cooking where you create 2 traditional spiced pastes, which will be added to all your dishes. So glad we created these. We opted for Chicken over any seafood on the day, and created 9 dishes which was so much food, so make sure you come hungry. The team a Taste of Bali were very friendly and very helpful. So glad we did this course and dishes were easy enough to replicate at home. So you should definitely do it. Price for the course was great.
Chef Bagus is a true entertainer assisted by a fantastic group of staff especially Mumma Bali. A wonderful 4 hours exploring and understanding the culture, origins and food of Bali. Exceptional value, highly recommend- 6 ⭐️
The hospitality was outstanding. The food we made was incredible and I'm definitely adding a few of the recipes to my repertoire back home. They provide you with a cooking book at the end of the event which was a thoughtful touch. They were also very accommodating and provided vegetarian options. While I am not a vegetarian myself, I was surprised by how tasty those dishes were. All in all, I would highly recommend this class to anyone with an interest in cooking.
Learn the obvious advantage of cooking with a wok, a chinese knive and a balinese pestle and mortar. Everything except thr protein is put on a single plate and then in proper sequence in the wok, amazing practicality of this national cousine - once claned and peeled it takes only 5-10 minutes to cook a exotic dish. Balinese is in the sauce they said - and you learn 3 different but essential one.
The whole class was so informative, from the market tour to chopping all the ingredients, then enjoying the delicious different courses. The dessert was so unusual but outstanding in taste and presentation!
Great fun, excellent food and awesome chef
Soo much fun! I would definitely do it again, I met so many nice people, great atmosphere!
Great fun very informative Lovely food friendly staff
I really enjoyed the tour of the markets, our guide was easy to understand and very likeable. Chef Bagus was entertaining and so knowledgeable. All of the dishes we made were outstanding. Would highly recommend this class!
Chef Bagus is a fabulous man and so passionate about his art. All things Balinese. He is a great teacher and you will walk away with a bevy of new knowledge and skills and friends
What a great experience. Value for money and some! We all had a fabulous day with Chef Bagus. We met new people, tried new foods, learnt new cooking skills, laughed and laughed. What an amazing time we had. Totally recommend and I already have friends interested for their next trip. Thank you Chef Bagus you are amazing.
We had such a great time with Chef Bagus. He makes the class fun with his jokes, but also manages to teach us a lot about cooking tips and tricks we never knew! I couldn’t have booked a better class. It was the highlight of our time in Seminyak.
It was a funny and delicious cooking class. The best that I had, so far.
Clean environment to cook. Nice and helpful staff. Chef Bagus is very professional, showing us everything we need to know about Balinese cooking, from special spices and herbs they have here in Bali, to traditional cooking and preparation methods. The class is super fun and we get lots of chances to have hands on. Love the part where we got to try the dishes right after we just made them. 10 recipes were being cooked and all of them are awesome. Highly recommend this cooking class if you want to experience how bali people cook for there fantastic meal!
One of the best travel experiences I've ever had! Extremely well organized, excellent and helpful chefs and staff, and the best food imaginable! The meals and snacks (breakfast) provided were excellent! It was so well worth it, and I'd definitely recommend this class to fiends/family in future. Leaving with a cookbook was a bonus that many will treasure!
We loved this cooking class at Anika cooking school. Our guide took us through a local market and had very good English. At the class staff were professional and helpful and we made and then ate delicious lunch. We went home with a great cookbook, and fond memories of our time. Cookly gave us a great price for this class - definitely recommend booking through them :)
The humour with which tommy delivered his instructions and wisdom was what made it thoroughly enjoyable
The staff were extremely organized, quick to assist, and friendly. Chef Bagus was hilarious. He was extremely knowledgeable and taught us so much about the ingredients we were using. His personal anecdotes helped us get to know him as a friend, not only as a teacher. The food was amazing too. It was great that they pre-cut all ingredients and had us do everything as a class. This allowed for no one to get stuck behind or for others to have to wait for anyone struggling. Instead, we worked as a team and did well with it. It also allowed us strangers to get to know each other. We loved everything about the class!
Very informative and overall a very fun day :)
Interactive, funny and informative. Great to have all the recipes and be given a tour of the market.
Chef Bagus was very energetic, friendly, and informative in the class. He taught us how to make 10 amazing Balinese dishes. 10/10 would recommend!
Chef Bagus was an amazing host for this cooking class. He was funny, engaging and informative. In addition, his staff were equally as friendly and informative when conducting the market tour before the class. I would highly recommend this class to anyone else who is interested in Balinese cuisine.
Loved the cooking classic. Bagus was very good and a real chef. Very educational about ingredients, techniques, and flavours. Learned a lot!
Loved it! Chef Bagus was so engaging and entertaining! The food was delicious and the preparation process was very balanced with just the right amount of time spent mixing, etc. Chef Bagus gave the little girls just the right amount opportunity to cook and they wanted to come back again.
