Sidemen: Firewood Cooking Class & Organic Farm Tour

1. Sidemen: Firewood Cooking Class & Organic Farm Tour

Your local host has spent years dishing out authentic Indonesian cuisine in the best Indonesian restaurant in Tokyo, but then decided to return to their roots in beautiful, rural Sidemen in East Bali to teach travellers from all over the world the beauty of this cuisine through organic ingredients and age-old recipes. Following pick-up from your hotel, you will visit Klungkung Market, the second biggest market in Bali where you will experience local Balinese shopping. Trek through Sidemen's rice paddies with amazing views and hand pick your own vegetables from the organic farm before you start your cooking class. There will be no use of electricity and gas, which all adds to the incredible experience. You will also have a chance to swim in the river afterwards! Learn about the Balinese way of life and culture, and learn how to get maximum flavour and a large variety of dishes from very few but very fresh ingredients. Recipes will also be provided to let you bring these incredible flavours back home.

What people are saying about Sidemen Village

An impressive tour, one of the best we have ever been to!

An impressive tour, one of the best we have ever been to! We managed to completely immerse ourselves in the Balinese cuisine , where everything is done manually , and also to discover new tastes and aromas. First, we managed to visit the local market, where the guide (the chef) told us a lot of interesting things about spices, vegetables and fruits. Then we managed to discover where the Balinese people get their food, yeah! We got to the real field surrounded mountains, where in traditional cone-shaped hats we picked up some ingredients:) Was very interesting to find out how Balinese people skillfully use all the gifts that nature gave them! Next, we were lucky to cook in an atmospheric Balinese kitchen in the mountains, under the guidance of an outgoing, cheerful, and friendly chef! We finished everything with a meal in nature, that we have made together ! Thank you a lot!!!:)

I can warmly recommend this cooking class to everyone. The visit to the huge market in advance, was also very impressive. The whole team, from the chauffeur to the cooks and cooks, they were all very warm and wonderfully supported us. At the end we had a delicious buffet for feasting, many nice experiences and of course the recipes to take home.
