    Putu and her family are incredible hosts. You will learn about cooking; Balinese culture and family life and get a very authentic and deep insight into rural Balinese living. Putu was warm from the moment we met her...The food you lean to cook is absolutely delicious. This is the one tour I would recommend above all others in Bali.

    Excellent. Very detailed, hands on, and authentic experience. If this is what you are looking for, then look no further! Very welcoming family and the food is amazing, which I learn to cook yourself. Very good English

    ...It was great to see the cooking in the context of her home and family. We also loved speaking to her and her husband about family and culture. Also, we enjoyed eating the delicious food! It was a feast.

    Fabio was wonderful, generous and made this a highlight of our trip to Italy. His wife Christiana joined as well and shared her delicious homemade plum chutney and shared how they cured olives from the grove outside their house. I wish I could give them 6 stars. Thank you!

    A truly memorable and authentic Balinese experience. This is far more than “just” a cooking class, rather an immersive experience to meet an enthusiastic and engaging team from MAI Organic farm...Highly informative and humbling. With a smooth running and inclusive transfer to/from our hotel, this finished a deeply memorable and enjoyable evening. Hugely recommended on every level.

    We did a traditional Balinese cooking class with Putu Liong. ..Almost all ingredients were grown in the garden. We cooked 4 main courses + rice. All of them tasted extremely good. Not only was the cooking class a good opportunity to get more familiar with the Balinese food, it was also great to get to know more about the traditional way of living in Bali. Putz Liong was extremely welcoming and friendly. I can only recommend her class!

    Laura is generous with her knowledge and an engaging teacher...In her kitchen she offered expert and precise instructions while explaining her technique and how we could adapt her recipes for more guests in the future. We finished with a festive and delicious lunch of lemon rosemary risotto and tiramisu with sparkling rose.

  • Traveler Review from September 14, 2022 was a day that we will remember always! Putu was a very sweet person, who showed us all sorts of Balinese delicacies. We will highly recommend this experience any time!
