Got picked up at the accommodation, and we started with a visit to the market. Got more information about the ingredients, but also about Balinees traditions and customs. Then we were off to the cooking class. That's where we were introduced to our chef, Ketut. He's an entertaining person that knows his way around the kitchen very well. He explains, chops, jokes ... all at the same time, who said men can't multi task? :)
We prepared 3 different basic sauces (Bumbu Bali, peanut sauce and sambal Ulek), fried chicken, steamed fish, chicken saté, mie goreng, chicken soup and a banana desert. First of all Ketut explained every ingredient we would use today, we got to smell, taste, ask questions. After that we chopped up all the spices, herbs and vegetables we would need for the preparations, everyone did their share, which made it go quickly. We had guidance and help if needed with every step. Ketut is surrounded by a good team of helpers, which makes everything run really smoothly. After cooking it was time to enjoy and eat. You can take home whatever you can't finish on the spot and you get a copy of all the recipes. Enjoyable half day activity!
Note: I didn't get dropped off at my accommodation as agreed on, cause the driver didn't feel like doing 2 stops. After asking nicely a few time, I just gave up. I had the feeling it was because I'm a young solo traveler, it happend to me a few times before. It's just a detail and it was only a short walk, but maybe confirm your stop again before leaving.
