Cooking Classes

Cooking Class

Ubud is known as the art center of Bali, and that includes the art of cooking.  This previously sleepy, but not bustling town offers a wide range of cooking courses, from village family-style up to high-end fusion cuisine and from half-day to full week programs.

Discover the unique cooking methods in the fascinating kitchen of Casa Luna with Janet DeNeefe and her team. Janet has been teaching Balinese cooking since 1987 and her cooking school has been published in the Australian newspaper as one of the best cooking schools in the world. Classes provide a fascinating insight into Balinese life, beliefs and culture through learning about its food, cooking and culinary myths. Participants learn about the exotic herbs and spices used in ceremonial and everyday Balinese dishes and are encouraged to actively help prepare the lavish Balinese feast that will then be enjoyed with a glass or two of the local rice wine or homemade hibiscus tea.

Or take the opportunity to learn the secret of creating a variety of delicious Balinese dishes in the kitchen of Bumbu Bali Restaurant. Jero Kartika and her team at Bumbu Bali Restaurant lead half-day cooking programs beginning with a visit to the Ubud traditional market just down the street. Guests participate in preparing a variety of dishes in a beautiful serene setting.  They have a vegetarian course menu as well as non-vegetarian.
