Balinese cooking; fun experience for everyone :)

Balinese cooking classes have become increasingly popular with our guests. Not only do you get to experience a traditional market tour, you also learn how to prepare many Balinese and Indonesian specialities in a traditional Balinese kitchen (Paon).

Balinese cooking is a complex blend of a variety of spices (bumbu) combined with  the freshest vegetables, meat and fish, eating real Balinese food is an unforgettable cultural experience.

Many of the spices and sauces you learn to make are easily transferable once you return home and do not have to be very spicy or meat based. Many Balinese dishes are vegetable and soy based (Tofu and Tempe) and the rich sauces are easy to adapt to a wide range of tastes.
