Fun cooking class and market visit
, Jun 2022
The activity starts with a visit to the Jimbaran fish market where you learn about different fishes and buy some to cook later on, we visited a vegetables market as well. And went to the workshop in this beautiful location, The Amala, the chef was very knowledgeable about Balinese food and was happy to answer all of our questions, a great experience that I can totally recommend!
Balinese Cooking With An Experienced Chef
, Jun 2022
We had a wonderful cooking experience with Chef Putu at The Amala. We chose Menu 1 and learned to prepare the basa gede, lawar salad, tum ikan and dadar gulung. Chef carefully explained the ingredients and how to prepare each dish. He also offered suggestions for ingredients that may be hard to find back home. Everything was so frivolous and we ate to our heart’s content. Highly recommend the Balinese Cooking Class with Chef Putu!
Great experience
, May 2022
We had such a great time doing the cooking class and market tour. The team was great and the food was delicious. There was plenty of small touches that went such a long way and made the experience even better.
What a fantastic day
, May 2022
Such a fun experience going to the markets to get the produce to use in the cooking class. The whole Amala team were amazing, very friendly and professional. Had a great day and the food was amazing. Highly recommend this experience.
Great experience for all
, Feb 2020
Very enjoyable cooking class with chef Putu, me and my friend opted for Menu 2 which was just delicious and there was no shortage of food. Went to the market in the morning to get fresh ingredients for our meals and then returned to the Amala where the cooking class was held. All staff were so friendly and attentive. Cooking class was very enjoyable and learned alot. Round trip transfer to our hotel was included too which was great. We also got a personalised certificate and got to keep the apron, a lovely touch.
Loved it!

I absolutely loved this cooking class. The setting was gorgeous, food was amazing and plentiful and our chef was fantastic. We also went to the fish and fruit/veg market before the class which was quite an experience! I would highly recommend this Balinese cooking class
Great experience cooking something new and exciting
, Jul 2019
This class was a great opportunity to cook authentic Balinese food under the guidance of a professional chef. Christ was very friendly and was a great conversationalist. We chose to add on the fish market visit with the class, and it was great to see how they do it in Bali. We also bought some herbs from the market nearby and it was interesting to see the different kinds of produce they have compared to what we're used to in Australia. At the hotel, we got to each have a turn at cutting up the ingredients and cooking them. We chose menu 2 and it was very tasty! At the end of the class, we got to keep our aprons and got a personalised certificate to show our completion of the class.

This was a great tour and experience. We did go with the chef to the local market and this I thought should be a must by all, but was provided as an option. It was nice for the chef to point out what was good and what was bad. He taught us how to pick the freshest Red Snapper the redder the eyes the better and one other secret. It was nice to see the real parts of the country and where your meal comes from. I will mention we were staying where most are in Nusa Dua south of South Kuta and it cost us 250,000 more Rupiah to get here. So that is one reason I cannot give this the full 5 stars. I say this because this wasn't brought up when we initially booked but only a day before the tour was to happen. Not good communication on this ... just be up front with the charges ... most will still pay, but don't be shady about it. I thought the chef was really good about explaining all the ingredients we were using and very detailed in how to prepare it. I was nice he had the recipe to follow along with. Something else that was nice ... I actually don't like Curry and he used ingredients that didn't include this and made the food authentic and delicious. We were given many opportunities to participate and be involved in the creation of the dishes. The staff were exceptional in helping us as well as the chef deliver a great experience and delicious food. They were also instrumental in preparing an elegant dining area to eat our finally prepared dishes. We were all very full and happy by the end. In the end it was great to receive our cooking aprons as roots, spices and ingredients we cooked with as well as a certificate we completed the class. Thanks again.

Chef Wayan was fabulous. The trip to the market was very educational and gave you a good local feel. The chef took our allergy issues into account and we had the most wonderful class and meal. We have had cooking classes around the world and this rates as one of the best.

Cant say enough about how AMAZING this class was! It was set at the beautifully set Amala Spa and Hotel. The chef as very knowledgeable and did a absolutely fantastic job teaching us about the various spices, walking is thru each menu item, and adjusting the meals based off of our preferences i.e. food allergy and heat tolerance. We prepared 3 dishes that turned out to be delicious and then were able to enjoy our meal by the pool. Only warning is that the class is taught outside so make sure you bring mosquito repellent : I highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to learn more about the Balinese cuisine and enjoying a wonderful dinner prepared by YOU!

What the perfect way to learn about Balinese cuisine! We discovered the secret ingredients, and were amazed by our own results! We visited the Jimbaran fish market to buy fresh products including our fish. The cooking class is placed in the beautiful settings of The Amala Hotel, where our patient and highly knowledgeable Chef taught us to prepare and cook a Michelin-worth lunch - Base Gede spicy paste, Tum Ikan steamed fish wrapped in banana leaf, traditional Lawar Salad, and Dadar Gulung coconut pancake. We had an amazing experience from the beginning to the end, and we recommend this class to learn about traditional Balinese cooking. The market visit is a must-see too, make sure to include it in your plans!

I enjoyed this immensely. Only two of us were in the class and the chef was very informative. We made a Balinese curry paste, some satays and a couple of other dishes. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotels.

This was the first thing we did in Bali and really loved it! We spent some time picking which one to go with there are a lot out there! and were really happy we chose this one. The setting was beautiful and the chef Mangde was great. Definitely recommend going for the extra market visit as this really made our experience, going around the fish market right next to the beach and picking up ingredients from the other stalls. We prepared and cooked almost everything ourselves, and then got to eat it in a lovely restaurant area.

Enjoyed our experience, especially eating what we cooked, well with great support. Being able to have an enjoyable bottle of wine with our meal was appreciated. Being used to enjoying our wine with meals in Australia, we were missing the opportunities in Bali - they were either too expensive or when we tried not so enjoyable but the wine we had this was. Being introduced to some Indonesian ingredients that we weren't confident we would find back home was great and we have found them, however they are not so fresh here. Would love to see a larger food processor used - like we do at home, but I guess the small one that was available was better than nothing. An experience work doing.

Great cooking class, chef catered to all levels of experience. Home cook to chefs. Chef provided substitute ingredients for items we might not find at home and answered any questions that people asked. The location was a lovely outdoor setting to make for a very relaxing pleasant experience. The food we made was delicious and I can't wait to make when I am back home. I would highly recommend doing this class.
