The cooking class is conducted in a traditional Balinese home located in Laplapan village. We chose the morning class which includes a short visit to the local market in Ubud to show us the different ingredients used in the cooking. It was colourful and interesting. Our guide Made provided good explanation and after the market visit, he took us to the rice fields in the village as well and provided a short introduction on tradition of family and rice growing culture. The rice fields were lovely!
Back at the school, we had further introduction of Balinese culture which we greatly appreciated. The owner, Pushpa led the class. The class is experiential as we learn to cut, pound, steam and cook the different dishes. We all combine the dishes cooked and then have it for lunch together. The lunch was delicious and everyone felt a sense of accomplishment at the end of the session. – Jolenelfc from Singapore River, Singapore
