My husband and I had an amazing time with Putu at her family home. On arrival we were given a tour of their home and greeted with delicious coconuts picked from their garden that very morning.
We felt an incredibly warm welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed talking with Putu and her family throughout the evening.
The cooking experience was brilliant, made even better by the fact that most of the ingredients were home grown. We cooked 5 different meals and have been sent the recipes for us to have a go ourselves at home. We would recommend this experience to anyone and we can’t wait to have a go at cooking the meals ourselves now we are back home. Thank you again to Putu and her family for making us feel so welcome and teaching us to cook some delicious food!

This was a highlight of our trip to Bali! We were welcomed with such hospitality and generosity. The class was private and did not feel rushed at all as Putu walked us through the 5 recipes and showed us the garden where all the ingredients were grown (even the rice was grown there). The food was plentiful and delicious and Putu catered vegan for me and normal for my boyfriend.

I would recommend this experience to anyone it was truly a great taste of Balinese culture and a special time shared!

We spent a great cooking evening with Putu! The package includes transportation to and from the accommodation and a tour of Putu's home with garden and temple. Very interesting and authentic to learn about the life of a local Balinese family. The ingredients for cooking were mostly from Putu's own garden! We have prepared various traditional Balinese dishes and learned a lot about the preparation process. The food tasted fantastic and was by far the best food we had eaten so far! If you want to experience an authentic cooking evening, we can definitely recommend Putu's cooking class. Suksmā Putu!

If I sound like I’m gushing it’s because I am! This was an outstanding experience and window into family life in Bali.
Right from the moment of our hotel pick-up Putu & her husband Pastor displayed warm hospitality, sharing local knowledge on the way to their family home. After touring their compound and gaining an understanding of family/village living and their Hindu faith our cooking class commenced. With most of the ingredients sourced directly from their property their was no doubt we were about to feast on quality and delicious Balinese cuisine.
The cooking process was enjoyable, informative and relatively simple (I think we’ll be able to tackle most of the recipes at home) and the fruits of our labour were sensational.
If you are looking to experience true Bali, then this is an activity you should absolutely do.
I give it 10/10!
Big thanks ro Putu and her whole extended family for making every moment from pick up to drop off enjoyable.

If you’re going to Ubud, do this activity! Out of everything that we have experienced in Bali so far, Putu’s cooking class has by far been our favorite! The whole experience lasted around 4 hours, with Putu giving us a private tour of her family’s traditional Balinese home and her family’s temple. Putu and her husband were both extremely warm and welcoming. As for the cooking, the meals we prepared were delicious and her instructions were very easy to follow. The food we prepared was better than any restaurant food we’ve had in Bali. 10/10 recommend!!

Puta was incredible. From the start to finish it was superbly organised. They picked us up from our hotel right on time, we were welcomed with coconuts/crackers and a tour of her personal temple and then went on to cook 5 amazing dishes. They were filled with wonderful ingredients and Puta showed us all the skills to take back home.
Would HIGHLY recommend!!

If you’re reading this, know that every positive review you will read about Putu and her cooking class is accurate. My partner and I looked at other cooking classes, but from the reviews, it was an inevitable choice to choose Putu’s. She AND her husband picked us up from our villa and made excellent conversation on the way to her house. We were not only graced with a tour of her backyard and family temple, local snacks and exotic fruits upon arrival, but she and her husband also hand picked cacao for us to take back to our villa. Putu made us feel extremely welcome and the class made us feel exceptionally proud to not only produce food of excellent quality but to be a part of a beautiful culture.

Putu welcomed us all into her lovely village and taught us about traditional Balinese food. I highly recommend this experience. It takes you away from the tourist city and shows you the culture, resourceful and minimalist lifestyle of Indonesians.
The food was delicious, and we were able to tailor the spice level to suit our liking.

I have been many times and love it. Putu and Pasta host you in their traditional Balinese home and the food is so delicious. It’s fun to cook together and learn all the tricks. Putu will even write out the menu for you (we had 7 dishes) and the recipe too. Fabulous . Add the Balinese dance too - well worth it.

The host, Putu, is extremely hospitable and made me feel like I am in my own home. Her English is pretty good.

Her cooking style is simple but yet each dish was bursting with flavour. Absolutely love the chicken sate which was so easy to prepare but yet appears complex in cookbooks.

Managed to cook soup, rice (in the traditional way), fish, sate, salad and even a dessert.

Would love to go back again to learn more dishes from Putu.
