    her recipes and the food are so much better than the restaurants we have been to in Bali....This class is worth every penny with Putu and I would urge anyone who visits Ubud to book her class...

    My husband and I had so much fun going to the market and learning from Manuel! Everyone at the market loved Manuel and greeted us with a smile. Max, his dog, was precious too! We enjoyed our time and of course the food!
