My husband and I did this class together, the Driver Yoga picked us up exactly on time and spoke good English. We arrived at a very traditional market place greeted by our guide Nyoman, who escorted us around to show us the Balinese way, he was very informative and friendly. We later went to his family residence to cook in a lovely kitchen facility set up with all the equipment, very clean and well presented. We learned the mother of all sauce and various ways in which to use it, plus many other dishes included. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who loves to cook and learn new things experiences.
