Casa Luna Cooking School in Ubud is probably one of the longest established cooking schools in Bali, and for good reasons, as it is also one the best.

Casa Luna Cooking School classes provide a fascinating insight into Balinese life, beliefs and culture through learning about its food, cooking and culinary myths.

Class discussions are relaxed and friendly and are held in the elegant grounds of the Second Honeymoon Guesthouse. They include specific references to the role of food in Balinese society, its ceremonial use and religious importance.

Participants learn about the exotic herbs and spices used in ceremonial and everyday Balinese dishes and are encouraged to actively help prepare the lavish Balinese feast that will then be enjoyed with a glass or two of the local rice wine or homemade hibiscus tea.

Complete class notes are provided.
