Surprise, surprise but for my 'BIG' birthday i asked to go on a Balinese cooking course. Jen dutifully obliged with a session with Wayan and, of course, Puspa at Paon Bali.
The reviews looked too good to be true but, do you know, it was everything that I could have wished for. The arrangements to pick us up were easy and Wayan (not Puspa's husband) brought his vehicle. One other couple in our vehicle, Pippa and Tama, and we were off. Not, as we thought, straight to the course, but to stop at the side of the road for a lesson on rice and life in a Balinese village by Wayan (Puspa's husband)
Then to Paon with a bunch of others and a welcome by Puspa and her girls. More Details of Balinese village life and we begin. Demonstrate and let us do it was the order of the day. It worked, we started our engines, swapped places with our 'honies' and cooked each part of each course.
I need say no more than every morsel was delicious and to think we had done it all.
Bintang was available for those who wanted it and a full recipe set was provided. Puspa and Wayan could not have been more helpful, entertaining or hospitable.
Everyone came away full and enthused. I certainly will be following the simple recipes to prepare a Balinese feast from starter to dessert.
Do not miss this, even if cooking is not your thing. It is a must!
