    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. You will be picked up from your Ubud hotel at 7am and driven to the Pejeng market to join the locals in shopping for the freshest produce. Putu will introduce you to the seasonal fruits, vegetables and spices on offer and you’ll pick up a few ingredients for your cooking lesson. You will spend about 30 minutes at the market before driving to Putu's home to start cooking together. The market offers wonderful photo opportunities, so don't forget to bring your camera! Join Putu in the kitchen for a hands-on cooking lesson. You'll work together to prepare 2-3 authentic Balinese dishes and as you chop, grind and grill Putu will teach you about the spices she uses in her family recipes and the medicinal qualities of Balinese ingredients. Putu's kitchen is simple, with only a two burner cooktop, and you are sure to be impressed by the speed and fluidity with which she can prepare a complex menu with multiple dishes. You can expect the cooking lesson to last about 1-2 hours.

    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
