Bali Asli – cooking class

BALI ASLI overlooks rice fields and has an incredible view of Mount Agung.

After our walk through the village, we returned to BALI ASLI for our cooking lesson. Chef Dewa showed us typical ingredients used in Balinese cooking and then showed us how to prepare chicken satay, peanut sauce for satay, spiced fish fillet in a banana leaf parcel, fern tip with grated coconut and red bean salad, spiced tofu in a banana leaf parcel, and Indonesian fried rice.

We worked in pairs and the ingredients for each dish were brought to us pre measured and empty containers were cleared by staff members right away. Stress free cooking…….I’d like to convince Erich to do this at home.

  1. I hope none of these were the dog pictures I requested. Just funnin’ ya, looks beyond yummalicious! Macho says to tell you he is way too busy to lick ( or too motivated to not be a conehead). All is well.
