    Great Experience Learn About Balinese Cuisine and Culture!

    Highly recommend this experience!

    It was hard to find the location of this cooking school but Wayan was very helpful in finding my location on the road and coming to me while lost on the road to get me to the right location.

    Overall, had a great experience learning about the type of plants/vegetables grown in the organic garden. Additionally, learn about Balinese cuisine and culture through this experience.

    Staff were extremely knowledgeable and friendly, recipes were excellent (tons of leftovers to take home), and the facility was clean.

    Loved supporting this local + organic business!
