"Welcome" to Bamboo Shoots Cooking School located at the Sanur Beach Villas in beautiful Sanur Bali.
Your Indonesian cooking experence is about to begin. Here you will see at first hand the unique Balinese culture and experience something different on the island through a traditional cooking experience. You will learn about Balinese and Indonesian spices and have a great opportunity to cook authentic Indonesian cuisine and delicious Indonesian dishes.
The program will start when we pick you up from your hotel at 7am, then its off for a visit to a local village market, here you will explore and experience the life of the Balinese and where we will buy the ingredients necessary for the meals you are about to cook including: garden fresh herbs, spices, fruit and vegetables. While there we will also choose from fresh cuts of meat and chicken.
After visiting the market we drive back to Sanur Beach Villas and the Bamboo Shoots Cooking School where your cooking experience will begin but not before we tempt your taste buds with breakfast of coffee/tea and fresh fruit juice followed by a banana pancake with honey or an omlette or maybe some scrabbled eggs. You can join in with the cooking of these or just sit back for a chat and relax and get to know the other cooking school guests.
Then on with the aprons....."LETS WOK"
