Caraway Cooking Class
Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia
This small, family run cooking school is one of the best places in Bali to learn a little about local cooking. There are several schools and classes available in the tourist areas of Bali, but this one in Sanur is consistently popular. It is run by a local Indonesian woman, and the cooking takes place in an outdoor kitchen adjacent to her house. Most classes will also include a visit to a local market to purchase ingredients; an insightful and useful way to learn more about the huge variety of ingredients available in this part of Asia. Dishes to be cooked vary with each class, and they are flexible too based on preferences of the participants. Staff will demonstrate preparation of ingredients, mixing of spices and cooking methods, then participants get to try it for themselves, and most importantly, to taste the results!
Public classes are run each day and take up to ten people, although private cooking classes can also be arranged. Around $50 per person.
