    This was an amazing experience!!...You learn history and so much about using your local products to make amazing food. The chef does his class in his private home kitchen where you get to see how a typical Bali family lives!!! The food was fantastic

    If this is the only adventure you do in Ulaanbaatar, you would not regret it... I cannot recommend this tour enough...If you are in the area and have an afternoon/evening available, this would be the best option.

    We were lucky enough to see a baby goat just after it was born, whilst our hostess explained the breeding/birthing cycle. We saw the milking room, and were then shown the process for making goats cheese. We then had a yummy tasting.
