Traveling Spoon connects travelers with local, vetted hosts to share the joy of a homemade meal in their home and learn about their cultural and culinary traditions passed down through the generations. Your experience will be private. During this retreat, you will join Dewa for a tour of his spice garden followed by a hands-on cooking lesson using traditional tools and a wood-fired stove.
During this retreat you will be staying at the Alam Sari Hotel, which in Indonesian means natural essence, a place where you experience the life of Bali through its people and the natural tropical beauty. You will stay in superior deluxe room.
Rather than a tour of a local market, Dewa will take you on a tour of a beautiful vegetable and spice garden where you may pick your own ingredients for your meal.
This retreat will take place in Bali, Indonesia, specifically in a place near to Ubud, the well-known center for traditional crafts and dance.
Your Balinese feast may include dishes such as pepes ikan (grilled tuna in banana leaves), a delicate and deeply satisfying dish, bumbu kuning (chicken in a fresh turmeric and coconut milk sauce), bregedel (corn fritters), and jukut urab (seasonal vegetables with grated coconut and fried shallots).
In traditional Balinese style, you will not eat your meal with Dewa and his family, although they will be with you throughout the rest of the experience. In keeping with their Balinese family tradition and sense of spirituality, your hosts will not share the meal with you at the dining table. Their preferred approach is to eat on one's own and focus on personal meditation to achieve a positive state of mind.
Alcohol is not included in the price, but is available at an extra price.
The nearest airport to the retreat is Bali airport, the Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS).
