Balinese Cooking class and local food market.

Bali, Indonesia
4

You’ve already heard my impressions about Four Seasons Jimbaran in the first post I did on my trip to Bali (see it HERE). But today I am going to share with you a visual diary of our local experience organised by the staff of the hotel. It was by far one of the funniest things I’ve ever done while travelling.

I was awake at about 7 a.m. that day as we had to visit the food market first thing in the morning, because you know how it works, you obviously go in the morning to buy the fresh fish caught by the fishermen a few hours before for your meal. Ah, if only London was like this… But fish, crabs, oysters and all of the seafood paradise isn’t the only thing we went for. We later moved into the fruit market where I was explained how to choose the best Mangos and Papayas, what each type of banana is used for and how to make coconut oil. Well, I guess now all I have to do is move to South East Asia and enjoy the healthy life!

Cautiously studying bananas after having been told there are about 12 types just in Bali… I AM NOT GOOD AT THIS!!

Visiting a food market with a local is the best thing. They’ll explain to you the differences between different types of crabs, fish, oysters and so on. It’s a world I’ve never known before!

After hours of work, our Bebek betutu and Sate Languan is looking quite tasty.

This was definitely my absolute favourite!! Jaja Kukus is a traditional Balinese glutinous cake with sweet coconut.

Daniel and I all dressed up in the appropriate clothing for the shrine… No doubt Daniel’s outfit is a winner.
