This tour is not your average cooking class or school , This is a day of Balinese Culture & Traditions.
The Bali Cooking Experience is conducted by our master chef, a local of the province of Bangli he has been head chef at some of Bali’s most luxurious resorts including Ritz-Carlton in Nusa Dua. He has now returned home and to his roots and wants to teach you he’s secrets.
If you drive approx 1 hour north from Kuta, you may find the district of Bangli if you know where your going, if you ask people that know the area they will tell you it’s like Ubud 20 years ago – and if you look at our video and photo’s above you will agree – It is quite simply stunning and untouched, locals still carry out their daily traditions that date back well before the Portuguese and Dutch discovered Indonesia.
We have set up this tour in collaboration with local government, Balinese heritage council, local farmers and villages of Susut, and Bali Rural Commune. Proceeds from this tour go back into the local community to preserve the rich culture and traditions of the region. Quite simply you will not find a tour or a place like this, it is the kind of thing you imagine seeing on Nat Geo Channel.
