AMAZING Dinner
Wanderer53868664183
, Nov 2019
This was an amazing experience, and we would recommend this experience for everyone visiting Bali. It was personal and such a wonderful insight into the life of the Balinese through their cooking and the invitation into their family home which was just spectacular. Dewa was a most informative and welcoming host and we could not have thanked him enough for having us and sharing his life's story. One of his spirituality and how this foundation has made him the man he is today surrounded by his generations of family members. It is a must to all visitors to give you an understanding of their culture and their beautiful outlook on life. It was just beautiful. Thanks again DEWA - you are a inspirational and beautiful person.

Fantastic day with Dewa and delicious food!

Dewa and his driver picked us up from our hotel at 9am and drove to his village. He took us on a tour and explained about their life, religion and various types of foods that grow in the area. Then we went to his house where he and his family taught us step-by-step how to make 6 different dishes (everything from salad to mains to dessert). He even gave us a hand made book to write the recipes in! It was such a great day and we had the most peaceful lunch in his garden. Couldn’t recommend this class more!

Cooking experience in Bali

Excellent experience to Balinese cooking. Dewa spent some time to first explain the agricultural model and its philosophy. We went through his garden to discover the typical Bali's plants. He welcomed us in his home to go through hands on cooking. Everyone was involved. We finally got to taste the 7 delicious recipes prepared. A unique experience to get closer to Balinese culture.

Authentic & Delicious

Dewa was such a loving and warm-hearted host. He taught us about his culture, gave us a tour of the wild vegetation that was used for our meals and opened his home to us to learn how to cook. We cooked 5 traditional Balinese meals that were easy to remake (I cook these regularly at home in New York) and were absolutely delicious. My sister and I had so much fun! We will be returning for a Part-2 cooking class to learn more.

Best way to experience Bali

This is the best cooking experience ever! Dewa started off by taking us through the gardens and forest where we get a better of understanding of the ingredients used for the cooking and the agriculture. And he further explained the culture, mentality and history of Bali and Balinese. Then he brought us back to his home, where he and his family taught us step by step the traditional cooking. Though it took us two hours to get there, but we had loads of fun! Highly recommend!

Insightful journey into Balinese culture

For our traditional Balinese cooking experience and garden tour in Ubud, we had the pleasure of having Dewa as our host. He drove us 15-20 minutes out from Ubud to his village. This is an amazing experience for anyone interested in being immersed in traditional Balinese culture and way of life. Dewa takes you through a journey through the village explaining different plants and farming practices as well as the history of Bali throughout time and the basis of its religion and cultural heritage. He explained about the Balinese simple way of life, living in harmony and balance with nature. We learnt many lessons in how we could improve our approach to our own lives and spirituality. After a peaceful walk, we looked at local tofu making and he showed us around his home. Our cooking lesson was fun and easy to follow. We were given the recipes for the dishes we made. We were able to relax and enjoy the food we cooked. All very delicious. After the meal, he drove us back. Highly recommended, one of the best things we did in Ubud. This tour directly helps to support the small villages and the traditional Balinese way of life to continue. Highly recommend!

A fantastic opportunity to learn more about Balinese culture

This was such a perfect way to spend our day. A drive into the hills from our accommodation to our meeting point was well worth it. Dewa was such an excellent teacher and guide who shared cultural information, stories and his cooking skills and knowledge with us. We came away feeling we had experienced something very special.

Spent 10 days in Bali and this was the absolute highlight. My wife and were looking for a traditional cultural experience and Dewa gave it to us. Being invited into his family home for a meal was an honor and priviledge. This is far more than just a cooking class.

The trek, the tour, the whole experience was life changing and powerful! Dewa is poignant and wise and lives with a wonderful philosophy that is at peace with his environment and has given me food for thought. The food to eat was even more delicious and I’m keen to try the recipes out when back home
