A driver will pick you up from your hotel at around 8 in the morning; we drive towards your Nusa Dua cooking school for a half-day hands-on cooking experience where you will learn the finer art of cooking Balinese food in a Balinese-style environment. This school is among the most reputable ones in the capital. You are warmly welcomed by the team of professionals who guide you through step by step to learn the basics. Before we start with the course, you will be served a light breakfast and move afterwards to a local market to source the ingredients and learn all about the spices, vegetables and seafood used to get that particular flavour.

Each student will get his dedicated cooking station, supervised by a team of true cooking professionals and experts in taking ingredients. Outside learning more about history, each student will also get insights on how to prepare and use the fresh ingredients for each dish. Recipes, experiences and the chance to eat what you have cooked are all part of the fun and educational morning and to bring back home to impress your guests with these new skills. In the end, you will have the skills and the recipes at hand to whip up a Balinese feast for family and friends.

After savouring your prepared Balinese dishes, your driver (no guide included) brings you back to your hotel, where you will arrive at around 2 pm.
