Head to Warung Nia Cooking School Bali

Chef Komang and his team will entertain you, make you laugh, and teach you Indonesian recipes you can recreate at home.

You won’t regret giving up these three to four hours of your life, that’s certain.

Starting at around 8.30am, the local market tour is led by a guide who dishes up all his secrets on the best local ingredients, herbs and spices to use in Balinese cooking.

Later, you work in pairs or small groups to chop, grind, and stir the ingredients for each dish.

One highlight is learning about the different tools you can use – the giant mortar and pestle is astounding!

Don’t think you can hide.

This is a fully interactive experience where your help is necessary and wanted!

You leave with written recipes, AND a certificate to prove you are now a verified “Masterchef”, ready to unleash your new found skills in the kitchen at home.

They call themselves ‘the best Balinese cooking school in Bali’.
