I booked this class for my group of 5, seeing the positive reviews. This class did not disappoint - this was the absolute highlight of Bali for all of us, it was AMAZING!
While this class may be on the pricier side of things (relatively) - it was worth every bit of the money we paid. Putu and her family were awesome. They were communicative before the class day, making sure our rides were in order. They came to pick us up exactly at the place & time that was promised.
Then the experience began at a local traditional market, where Putu explained the different cultural aspects and the market items. It was so fun and informative! We even got to pick out some extra fruits that we wanted to try.
We then went to Putu's home - which was beautiful and spacious. We started with trying the various fruits and exploring the home - the weather was nice and sunny at this point.
Then started the cooking in a beautiful outdoor kitchen, shaded perfectly by the canopies of Balinese flora. The space was prepared and cleaned - and the ingredients were all ready to be handled. Each dish was thoroughly explained by Putu, and we completed each from scratch, adjusting the spiciness level as we went. It started raining in the middle, and that made the experience even better (and truly Balinese) as we cooked to the serene sound of the pouring rain.
Then the dishes were completed right on time for lunch - which we enjoyed with a bottle of beer. The food was so yummy and authentic - only because Putu and her family were guiding us through each step. We got to see Putu's chickens and dogs, and my goodness. Words can barely express how amazing this experience was. I've been recommending it to everyone headed to Bali, and if you're looking for an immersive, relaxing and private experience, don't look further!!
