The family at Lobong were extremely hospitable, and welcomed us into their home. The market tour was fantastic, as was the cookery lesson with many top tips. The meal at the end was the best we have had in Bali. Would definitely recommend!

We highly enjoyed our cooking experience at Lobong. The market tour was really interesting and we were given an insight into Balinese culture and traditions. I like the fact that the class was limited to 12 participants so it was very personal and we were all given the opportunity to get involved. The compound is beautiful and it was well... More

I am so happy we took part of this experience. The Lobong family is very hospitable, warm, professional and their approach to Culinary cultural experiences is really perfect. We were picked up on time to the local market, on the way they introduced it

This was an amazing experience and one of the highlights of our trip. Food is such a fun way to learn about culture. It was very cool to see the family compound and learn about their traditions. It was also the best food we had the entire trip.

I went cooking with my Mom at Lobong! It was the most incredible experience. They took the effort to go above and beyond the cooking and explain their culture. They had everything perfectly planned out and really were professional. It was amazing being able to be in their family home and learn different things about their culture and family .... More

My cousin and I really enjoyed our culinary experience with Lobong. Everything was well planned, perfectly organized and given careful thought to detail. They are very professional but the whole experience was also very comfortable and homey. The school is in their beautiful family compound. They took time to explain not just food but culture and tradition of Bali too.... More

This cooking class was the highlight of our trip to Ubud. It was very informative and very hands on. The Lobong family are wonderful and we took away a lasting memory (oh and a little gift). Thank you all.

This should be promoted as a Balinese cultural experience! This experience with Lobong should be compulsory when visiting Bali for the first time. You'll learn so much about the Balinese way of life, which will hold you in good stead whilst wandering the streets of Bali. You get to create & eat some fantastic food which can be downed with...
