The Organic Farm Tours

“When we arrived at the farm we started with a tour through the garden to harvest our vegetables for cooking and learn how all these vegetables grow here in Bali.”

The Cooking Experience

“The advanced class is great for anyone who loves cooking. You get to pick the dishes you’d like to make and you cut, prep and cook everything. “

Jessie Li – Couples Cooking

If you love food and want to learn more about cooking from Bali, an advanced cooking class is a great choice.

In this class, you get to pick the dishes you want to learn how to make. You’ll be right in the middle of it all, doing everything from chopping up ingredients to cooking the meals.

There’s always someone around to help if you need it, but you’ll be cooking most of the dishes. This makes it a fun and active way to learn.

Since these recipes can be pretty tricky and there’s a lot to prepare, these classes usually take longer than the basic ones.
