Cooking School in Nusa Dua, Nusa Dua Indonesia, Bali
A wonderful cooking school run by Heinz von Holzen, author of five highly acclaimed cookbooks, in his famous restaurant Bambu Bali in Nusa Dua. You will have four hours to learn about Balinese kitchens and its dishes, visit some Balinese markets and see for yourself the huge variety of produce that make up this wonderful cuisine. By the end of the morning you will be able to make a wide range of dishes from the famous Nasi Goreng to Ayam Pelalah (shredded chicken with chilli and lime).
Along with his team of Balinese chefs, Heinz will show you the ingredients and techniques involved in producing a range of traditional Balinese dishes. You will be picked up from your hotel and taken to Jimbaran village market to pick up the local agricultural produce and have some morning refreshments, before visiting the local fish market where you will experience the hustle and bustle of market life and learn about Balinese seafood.
You will then go back to the restaurant, where you will make a selection of traditional Balinese food. You will learn about the different flavours, ingredients and techniques that go into Balinese cuisine and the morning will finish with an opportunity to sample your work. Please note that this course is only held on certain days so please speak to one of our consultants to fit it into your itinerary.
The stand out experiences all involved some locals: the walk in the Bali rice fields with a guide, the trip to the Borobudur eco-village and ride in a horse cart which also charmingly had us playing the Gamelan with local kids.
