This was an Ubud Amazing & Authentic Experience!

This was an amazing & authentic experience! A must try if you’re in the nearby Ubud area.

A three part experience (market tour, farm tour, and cooking experience). We had a total of 6 dishes – two apps, three mains and one very delicious dessert. They easily cater to meat and vegetarian restrictions, both options equally tasty.

We booked easily in Airbnb (search “Organic farm cooking class in Ubud – fully handson”) and you can pay in your own currency ahead of time.

Pick up is super convenient and instructions very clear.

Instructors speak very fluent English and have a light humour to keep the class fun. You must try!

A Must for cooking enthusiasts (vegan menu)

Highly recommend for anyone who enjoys cooking or wants to learn more about Balinese and Indonesian cuisine.

We did the advanced class with a vegan menu and it was fantastic. We started by taking a tour of the farm, where we picked some of the vegetables, chile peppers, and herbs used in our cooking class. We learned how long it takes to grow certain plants, medicinal properties, etc.

The farm is 35-40 minutes drive from Ubud and is in a beautiful Balinese jungle setting. For the advanced menu, we cooked 8 main dishes and one sambal and one dessert. We prepped half of the dishes, then cooked, then ate. And then repeated the process.

We got to pick which dishes we wanted to cook a day in advance, and the team did a great job at adapting their standard menu to be vegan. For instance, instead of a meat kebab, we made a potato skewer which was surprisingly delightful. Instead of meat satay, we did tofu and tempeh satay.

Since there were just two of us in our advanced vegan cooking class (and four others in the standard afternoon class), it was almost like a private class for us.

Our instructor Beego was funny, engaging, helpful, and informative, and gave us lots of tips on Balinese ingredients and cooking in general, not just the specific dishes we made. Some standout dishes we cooked: banana flower soup (almost meaty!), young coconut salad (not a traditional salad, but a warm dish), nasi goreng, and the sambal matah.

You get to take home a booklet of all their recipes, not just the dishes you made, so you can recreate them at home. A must-do for cooking enthusiasts when in the Ubud area!
