Discover the spiced flavors of Bali’s virtually unknown cuisine. Classes offer a fascinating introduction to the exotic ingredients and unique culinary heritage of Bali. They provide a valuable insight into the various techniques of food preparation and the cooking style used in our island homes. Classes start with an early morning visit to the local vegetable and fish market where many of the ingredients are purchased for the day’s program, including spices, meat, chicken, cakes and the freshest seafood.
Visitors will witness and experience the very busy, early morning activities of the local community, who is eager to finish their shopping well before 8.00 am.
The next stop will be on the beach with Ibu Nyoman who is collecting the fish from the returning fishing fleet. No fish will make it into our shopping basket that has not crystal clear eyes and carries the freshness of the wide ocean.
After a satisfying breakfast of Balinese cakes, fruits, black rice pudding and a bowl of tender sweet rice flour dumplings in palm sugar coconut sauce, we will leave the comfort of the dining pavilion and enter the wide open Balinese kitchen
Dressed in black and white aprons and a copy of 22 recipes participants will be guided into the many secrets, and flavors of Bali and at the same time, discover and feel the peacefulness of a harmonious Balinese home.
