Cooking Class

Cooking class

Discover the spiced flavors of Bali’s virtually unknown cuisine. Classes offer a fascinating introduction in 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.

Most lessons are hosted by Heinz von Holzen, author of five highly acclaimed cookbooks, (The Food of Bali, Bali Unveiled – The Secrets of Balinese Cuisine, Feast of Flavors from the Balinese Kitchen, Feast of Flavors from the Indonesian Kitchen, and Street Food in Bali) and the assistance of his talented Balinese Chef, and long time friend Pak Bagus. After four most informative and entertaining hours in the kitchen the small group will face the grandest and final task, sampling and enjoying the mouth watering dishes which the group has prepared. The day will conclude after a glass of piping hot Balinese coffee, the ever-popular black rice pudding and a creamy pumpkin cake.

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 available 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. This class is provided by our partner Bumbu Bali restaurant.
