We went here today and had a great time. Went to the market first a little bit out of ubud, which was really interesting and then cooked some amazing dishes including chicken satay. It was fun and interactive and would definitely recommend. You also get a recipe book to take away.

This is an incredible experience. I have done other cooking classes around the world but this is a stand-out top notch day. Very thoughtfully designed to ensure you experience the local life. Pick-up from hotel to a local market where there are no tourists. Back to the family compound where you experience first hand a local families life. Hear stories... More

I did this class today with my husband and it was totally amazing. The market tour was informative and fascinating. The class was at the family compound but in a professional kitchen. The cooking was informative and hands on and delicious. We can't fault this whole experience - every detail was thought about - from the cold towels after the... More

The cooking class and market visit were just fantastic ! This Balinese family welcomed us into their compound and shared their culture, food and traditions with us freely. I would highly recommend Lobong to anyone travelling to Bali !

If you love learning about the Balinese culture, what the locals do and how they live, and learning about food, I highly recommend this activity! The hospitality starting from the moment they pick you up from your hotel to the very end is excellent. Our guide knew so much about Bali, and we could ask him anything, and he would... More

Not only did we learn how to cook delicious Balinese food but we also learned about living life in a traditional Bali family compound. We chopped and stirred our ingredients and then sat together and enjoyed a fantastic feast. Knowledgeable, friendly hosts with excellent English. Handsome too!

We then went to the family compound where Sunday fed us delicious banana pisang and tea or Kopi. He told us about many fascinating aspects of family life in Bali and... More

We were collected early and taken to the family compound where we met other people doing the course. After that, we were taken to the local market where we were introduced to the basic ingredients of Balinese cooking. The teacher taught us lots about the different ingredients and how best to choose them as well as answering questions about the... More

A wonderful day beginning in the local markets and finishing with the best meal we had in Bali! We would definitely do this again and recommend it highly to others. Very insightful experience into the lives of a Balinese family.

We learned so much about the Balinese culture through this class by going to the market and going to the family's home. We participated and learned about all steps of the meal. This was the best food we ate in Bali. So many different flavors in each dish, amazing. We recently tried out the recipes at home in the US... More
