The family that run this cooking class are warm welcoming and fun, welcoming you into their home for the class! The variety of food you prepare is traditional & a good range of dishes. We had a fun morning preparing and cooking the dishes with some fun people from around the world, can't recommend it highly enough!

This was my first cooking class, and i was very pleased. Very nice people, everything very organised. We cooked 7 courses, and learned about how cooking is done in bali. The price is very good and they picked up us on the hotel in Ubud.

I left Paon Bali Cooking Class feeling all warm and fuzzy. Being there with Pupsa and her family felt like home, they were so genuinely kind and welcoming. Pupsa is hilarious and just an absolute joy. I felt very lucky to have met her. The staff at Paon Bali seemed to all love their jobs, one of the guys who... More

I must admit that I was a bit wary about going into the hills of Ubud with strangers after reading and hearing a lot of horror stories! However our tour guide, Wayan, soon put us at ease. The tour of Ubud markets was eye opening and educational. Upon arrival at Paon Bali we were made to feel like part of... More

Very nice, clean and fun cooking class. Pick up was great and cooked food amazing. Little bit more touristic but still a recommendation if you're looking for a class. Beautiful kitchen and scenery. Very friendly and funny husband and wife.

We had a great experience learning how to cook Balinese food from Puspa and her team. Lots of variety and great tips of how we can use other ingredients if we can't find the ones they use. Very interactive and the team are extremely professional and efficient. Puspa has a great sense of humour!! When the time came for us... More

We had heard such great reports and every one of them proved true. Wayang showed us through the colourful and aromatic market, the chance to taste rambutan again was delicious! My kids and I then enjoyed everything about this hands on and engaging experience at Paon. Lots of laughs, great fellow chefs-in-the-making, insight into traditional flavours and ingredients, then sharing... More

This cooking class deserves the high accolades it has received as it was fantastic! We did the morning class so we were treated to a tour of the local markets as well - the market is so atmospheric even though the building it's housed in looks like it's ready for demolition! Then it was off to Puspa's gorgeous house to... More
