Free pick-up included
You will learn recipes found only in a traditional Balinese family compound where the head of the house is a passionate cook such as Adi.
Start by chopping and pounding spices that you pick from our organic gardens to make Adi’s secret Balinese Spice Paste that he learned as a child from his grandfather and refined as an adult.
With your complete spice paste, you will create authentic Balinese dishes using variations of the paste - for example – raw paste to mix with tofu to be roasted, lightly sautéed paste for rich coconut curries and caramelized paste for fresh organic green salads.
Each of you will have your very own cooking station. You will cook at least 2 salads, 3 mains, 1 dessert and several spicy sambals. The classes are fully hands on where you will cook all dishes together to be shared as a Balinese feast.
You will also make key staples such as fried chilies, finely sliced fried shallots and garlic and grated roasted coconut and learn about pantry items such as Balinese sea salt, homemade coconut oil and shrimp paste.
