There is no better way to explore the Balinese local life and culture, than through its food! During this cooking class you will learn the secrets of the authentic Balinese cuisine.



The cooking class starts with a visit to the traditional market. Here you can see all kinds of spices and main ingredients used for cooking the Balinese food. It is a good opportunity to learn more about the social life of the Balinese people as well.

I have been actively involved in the community-based tourism development since 2010. When I visited villages in remote areas of Bali Island, I saw that they have potential for tourism which could help the villagers earn a living. They only need to know how to manage, package and promote it to the world. I noticed that when the locals know the value of their traditional culture, customs, natural environment and understand that they can benefit from it, they are very interested to open up for travelers like you. I am here to help them promoting their valuable cultural knowledge with the goal to increase their earning power. This goal can only be achieved with support from travelers like you!
