Putu and her family were amazing hosts. We particularly enjoyed being shown around her lovely Balinese house and garden. She was very knowledgeable not just about cooking but also about Balinese culture and history.The food was delicious and class was held very professionally - you can tell the process was well-thought through because we managed to cook so many dishes in a short span of time! All in all, it was an eye-opener and I would highly recommend it for anyone seeking an authentic and meaningful experience while traveling.

Of our weeklong trip to Bali, the private cooking class with Putu was the highlight. In our other touristy experiences, we saw a very curated picture of the country, but this gave us a true window into Balinese culture and life. We loved walking through the farmer's market and trying new fruits and vegetables (one of my favorite things back home, too!). Putu was a tremendous host, welcoming us into her home and introducing us to her family. She was very helpful in teaching us about all the products/produce we were using and showing us the techniques for cooking traditional dishes. In all, we made 7 dishes, which were all delicious. We requested a completely plant-based menu, and were blown away with the variety of flavors that we created. It was lovely to share the meal with her family. We highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Bali. Thanks, Putu!

What a fantastic truely authentic Balinese experience. Putu and her family made us feel really welcome in their home. Putu was so knowledgeable and the Balinese food we cooked was so tasty we will definitely be cooking these dishes at home. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. I highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants an real Balinese experience

This was absolutely one of the highlights of our trip! Puta was so amazingly kind and knowledgeable about traditional Balinese food, culture and traditions and for me as a nutritionist it was so much fun to get to know all the local food and cooking techniques. It was also such an honour to see a traditional Balinese home and to be welcomed in such a beautiful and kind way. I would most definitely recommend it to absolutely everyone. Even my husband who isn’t a massive cook really enjoyed the experience. If you are thinking of doing it at all, just get booked in right now!

We did a dinner time cooking class with Putu and her family and what an experience! Not only the recipies and the food (the best food we’ve had in Bali and beyond) but also her ability in making us feel so welcome and sharing with us lots of information about daily life in her village and Balinese customs and traditions which are very different from what we know from modern days Europian life. So grateful for having had the opporrunity to meet and cook with Putu. Can’t recommend highly enough.

My family of four (two adults, two kids) had an amazing cooking experience with Putu and her family. Prior to coming to Bali, I was debating whether to book a private class or a group class, and I'm so glad we chose the private class with Putu. She and her husband picked us up in morning and we toured Ubud market, purchasing some vegetables for the day. We then drove to her family compound, and were warmly welcomed by her extended family members and adorable children. After some lovely welcome drinks and other surprises, Putu gave us a tour of her home and family temple (which we later returned to give offerings of our prepared food). Our cooking lesson featured classic Balinese/Indonesian dishes (sweet tempe, corn fritters, mixed vegetables with grated coconut, fish steamed in a banana leaf, chicken satay with peanut sauce, rice with honey potato); the only thing more fun than learning to prepare the dishes was eating them for lunch!

This was our first formal experience in Bali; Putu and her family made it a perfect day. We have some genuine knowledge and wonderful recipes to use as we continue our stay. Highly recommend!

Putu is a loving mother, wife and chef. She was so welcoming and kind from the very first moment we met/she picked us up. After a little ride to her family house where she lives with her family and parents in law she showed us her organic vegetables. We even got a fresh picked coconut as a welcome drink as well as typical Balinese snacks. We saw, smelled and tasted the ingredients we were about to use for the various dishes she was going to teach us. The class itself was just my friend and myself, so Putu could focus on both of us. She was very interested in us and our lives as well as we were in hers. So we had a lot to talk about (besides the wonderful delicious dishes we were preparing). She took her time to explain every dish and steps you have to take till it's done. Her family members assisted us. In the end the cooking class resulted in a buffet with all the plates we prepared during the 2+ hours of chopping, grinding, frying and boiling. One of the best things was that we enjoyed dinner together.
Thank you very much for guiding us through your Balinese recipes / dishes. It was a pleasure meeting and spending time with you and your family, Putu. We will definitely recommend your class!!

It was definitely one of the best cooking classes we have ever visited!
We had a tour of the organic garden with plenty of explanations before attending the cooking class and preparing some traditional tasty balinese dishes.
Mai Organic family, thank you again for this experience!

We had the greatest time with Putu and her family, dadong (grandma) we love you❣️

We were picked up and then greeted first with yummy homegrown fruits and coffee, then took a tour of the family temple and ancestral home before learning how to prepare and cook no less than 6 dishes.

The whole family were so lovely, this is an experience to remember!
