What's cookin' at Bali's Le Meridien Nirwana Golf & Spa Resort?
You will find out if you sign up for their newly-launched two-day cooking course.
The program begins with a visit to a traditional Balinese market in nearby Tabanan where participants are introduced to the cooking ingredients found in the Balinese kitchen.
Next, a drive along back roads into the heart of Bali, passing through fields of cucumbers and beans before a stop at a traditional Balinese home. The Balinese family compound visited consists of several buildings whose location and function are strictly prescribed by local tradition. A light, mid-morning tea is served before traversing the spectacular, cascading rice terraces of Jatih Luwih.
The day's program culminates in a sumptuous lunch nestled in a bamboo forest, perched high above a ravine.
The second day explores Balinese cooking techniques such as grinding ingredients in the local tradition with stone pestle and mortar, a necessary preliminary to making the base sauces and marinates fundamental to Balinese cuisine. Participants also prepare typical dishes from the Balinese table including gado-gado (vegetable salad in peanut sauce); satay lilit (seafood satay); young papaya soup; fried rice; sambal (chili paste); and dadar gulung (rolled pandanus crepe with coconut filling).
