After being picked up from your Ubud hotel, meet your guide and small group of no more than 15 people to discuss the day’s menu. Once you’ve decided on which dishes you want to cook (depending on your group’s preferences), follow your guide to the local market to shop for fresh ingredients.
Enjoy a glimpse of typical Balinese life as you explore the bustling marketplace, listen as your guide explains the different produce on sale and help select the fresh meat, vegetables, herbs, and spices that you’ll use in your cooking class.
On the way back from the market, take a scenic detour through Bali’s famous rice paddies and get chance to chat with the local farmers and see the workers planting or harvesting the crops.
On arrival in Kelabang Moding Village, take time to peek into the village school and temples, before being welcomed into a traditional Balinese home to begin your cooking class. Then, it’s time to get hands-on as you create an array of delicious Balinese dishes, and pick up plenty of tips and techniques from your instructor, an experienced local chef.
Finally, sit down in the garden with your newfound friends to enjoy your homemade lunch or dinner, including perfectly cooked rice and a scrumptious dessert. Before you leave, be sure to note down the recipes of your favorite dishes so you can recreate them back home.
