Pure Culinary Bliss
Our instructor, Wayan, was also the founder/owner. He was stupendous! I can't write or say enough about how fantastic he is. Super witty, engaging, and generous, we felt at home immediately. We had a table set for two plus our own kitchen, very romantic. What set this school apart from the others was the variety of dishes that we could make. I made my eight selections from the list of appetizers, mains, and desserts. We then walked through the organic farm and picked our own ingredients. We learned about Wayan's vision for his community. His mission is keep the local villagers engaged through organic farming, trade, and sustainable enterprises. We saw his concept in action, and it is legit.
Great Experience For Anyone Visiting Bali
The farm itself is beautiful. It’s a totally organic farm, so anything on the grounds is safe to pick and eat right then and there. The assortment of vegetables grown here is really quite beautiful. The guide and cooking instructors are extremely knowledgeable of their crops and their western counterparts/substitutes if you don’t have access to the exact plants used. The kitchen area is covered, but you’re outdoors facing the beautiful farm. The instructions were clear and the recipes are great for beginners and experienced cooks alike. All of the flavors were vibrant and each dish was more delicious than the last. The staff was eager to help and accommodating; you could tell they loved sharing Balinese culture through the cuisine.
Incredible Balinese Experience!
The whole experience was amazing! Walking through the farm and learning about traditional Balinese food was so unreal. We really loved picking the organic food to cook with and learning about what the farm is about. Our group was quite large and they easily catered for us and another group that was there. Cooking in the facilities was so beautiful because you could watch the sunset over the jungle as you're cooking the amazing food. The staff are so friendly and knowledgeable and have very good sense of humours. Really enjoyed the experience as a whole and can not wait to use my cookbook back home!
