• COOKING WORKSHOP IN UBUD:
There are many cooking classes available in Bali.. Some are good, some are so-so, some are bad..
This is Asia, where successful products and concepts are easily
copied…many times with a poor quality, and meant for gaining quick and easy cash… Some (even the famous ones) are just a stage show for an ego-driven owner / chef doing a floor show rather than actually ‘teaching’ the participants..
Our Cooking Class partner is one where even well-known Chefs from Asia and International star Chefs have attended the classes, and they are always commenting on the professionalism of the class.
The class begins early morning in the markets of Ubud, where the chef explains the use of all local vegetables, tropical fruits, and spices on array, selecting those for the subsequent cooking class. The members of the class do the actual chopping and cooking, under the chef’s supervision, then on the competition sit down together and eat the dishes produced.
Participants go home with recipes (and even a certificate) and the knowledge how to prepare these delicious Indonesian dishes.
Price: U$D, 60,-pp. (applicable for the Bonus Activity !)

The journey leads you away from the main roads and busy highways on to back roads and through authentic villages.
First stop is a natural stone quarry where villagers have cut the stone out of a dry river bed for generations. From there the trip continues to an agricultural village where you will discover the fragrance of Balinese coffee being roasted and traditional Balinese snacks are freshly prepared for you. Learn to make “canang”, the most important element of Balinese temple offerings and take an optional 30 minutes soft trekking through the rice fields.
Next stop is a trip high into the mountains through the UNESCO-recognized rice terraces of Jatiluwih, followed by a sumptuous Balinese lunch, served in a rain forest restaurant surrounded by giant bamboo. Enjoy a glass of wine, beer, tea or Balinese coffee in the glorious open-air canopy.
