Hi, my name is Puspa, but you can call me Ibu Puspa (everyone who comes to my home is welcome as a family member!). I'm a true-blue Balinese girl who grew up in a village near Denpasar but moved to Laplapan village with my husband after we got married. I used to teach cooking classes at several five-star hotels in Bali, but decided to start my own business a few years ago as I am passionate about teaching visitors about our rich culinary heritage and love meeting people from all around the world.

    Had a brilliant time today from pick up to drop off
    Always great seeing local markets, produce, local people just doing what they do
    From the moment we reached cooking school our host and family were amazing making us feel like part of the family, Puspa is a very bubbly and welcoming host, very easy to understand and great at her job, teaching us.
    So nice to sit down as one big family at end of cooking to enjoy our labours of love
    Just embrace and enjoy 😊

    This was an amazing class. The food was unreal, we learned a ton at the market and they catered to all of my food allergies. Puspa and her husband were also wonderful hosts. Highly recommended.

    Me and my husband decided to do this whilst on our break in Ubud, the experience included transportation which was a bonus. Not knowing what to expect we took the plunge. We both absolutely loved the experience, which included a trip to the local market, rice fields and the cooking. The full day was extremely well organised, every little detail and it was nice that everyone was involved and very hands on. The food we prepared and then got to eat was tasty! maybe the best we have had whilst in Bali! We also got all the recipes to take home! we cannot wait to give these a try!

    I loved Ibu Puspa and her family! Her house had a beautiful garden and I loved that the whole process was well organized and comprehensive. Couldn't believe that we cooked that many dishes in such a short period of time.

    Don't miss the opportunity!

    What a wonderful experience with wonderful locals who really enjoy showing you traditional Balinese cooking. Puspa and her staff are charismatic, very descriptive, and pleasant. The market tour was great, the food even better! The recipes are simple, but impressive - you will be whipping up Balinese food in no time!!
