This is a must do. An eager and energetic guide at the markets, explained the spices and ingredients used for our cooking. An experience it was to be taken back to his home with an immersion of family life and culture in Bali. The preparation and cooking was supported by informative, interactive demonstrations of each cooking process culminating in a... More

We have been wanting to participate in an authentic Bali cooking experience, as both my wife and daughter are great cooks Inc. Indian curries etc. Having researched TA we were suitably impressed that Lobong offered us a more authentic menu and experience than was offered by other similar cooking schools. As we were staying out at the Padma Ubud (near... More

If food is a fundamental part of culture, than this experience certainly helped broaden my understanding of Balinese culture. It is absolutely right to call it an experience and not just a cooking class, as the cooking is just a small part of it. We took the morning course so we could experience the morning market, and we were not... More

The Market tour was very informative, the Lobong family compound was extremely well presented, the family were all very friendly, The introduction to Balinese culture given by Sang was very interesting. The cooking class was great and the chef always gave information about substitute ingredients if we were unable to get certain ingredients at home. Then the meal we made... More

Had a wonderful time, this is so much more then a cooking class. You learn a lot about Bali culture and family live as well. The chef helping you to cook is so amazing and always ready to answer your questions. Finally the food we all prepared was just amazing!! You also could see his experience as a chef ....... More

I booked this class at late notice because I wanted to take my mother somewhere special, she is a cook and has been for many years, we were picked up promptly from our hotel, our senses were awakened as we went on a food journey through the local market, we were then driven down the road to the family compound...

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
