You can choose between two options with the main package a 5-hour experience including a tour of a local market and then a cooking class. The alternative option excludes the market visit and is 3-hour cooking class only.
If you are taking the 5-hour tour it will begin with a visit to the nearest local market from the cooking class venue. You will be picked up from your local Seminyak accommodation or the Pencar Seafood and Grill and taken to the market.
The mentoring chef will accompany and guide you from one stall to the next to find the ingredients which are required for the cooking class. The chef will help you to identify and select the best local herbs, spices, fresh fish, meats, vegetables and fruits for completing your Balinese cooking experiment. You will discover which local ingredients that are easy to be found abroad, especially in an Asian grocery store. You will then use the ingredients that were bought at the morning market run.
The purchase of the ingredients is included in both packages with no additional charges. In your cooking class the chef will bring an informative insight into Balinese herbs as well as the traditional local recipes. You will receive a recipe book containing the menu that you will learn to cook. During your 3-hour lesson you have an introduction to Indonesian and traditional Balinese cuisine ingredients. You will lean to make
Calon Be Siap (chicken meat ball soup), Lawar Gedang Muda (Balinese young papaya salad), Pesan Be Siap (chicken fillet wrapped in banana leaf), Sate Lilit (Balinese spiced ground fish meat on bamboo skewer), Sambal Udang (shrimp chili sauce), and Gegodoh Biu (Balinese deep fried banana with palm sugar),
As well as preparing a tempting Balinese meal, the chef will also invite you to cook another beloved Indonesian dish. After the class you will be delighted by the special lunch which you have just created.
