Paon Bali Cooking Class Ubud Reviews
Fantastic, best thing we've done in Ubud so far! Sep 24, 2011
Well I can't say enough great things about the morning we just had!
We were picked up at 8:30am and brought to the Ubud Market where we met the rest of our classmates along with a few of the staff from the PMCC.
We spent roughly 45 minutes walking through the Ubud Market, where a woman explained and pointed out the various cooking ingredients we would be using throughout our class. Although they do not buy from the market themselves and organically grow their produce, it was neat to see the break down of Vanilla, tempe, tofu, peppers, chillies, and even the fruits they use.
Following the Ubud Market experience, Wayon, the owner of the school brought us to his villages rice paddies where he explained how they grew and harvested the rice. Wayon did an amazing job of not only speaking about where and how rice came about, but gave us an incredible insight to Balinese families, village traditions, and a cultural perspective unlike I had gotten before.
Wayon brought us into his home, where we also met his wife, and co-operater of the school. They shared their home with us and explained the layout of traditional homes their.
Next the cooking class, we very interactive. We chopped up our ingredients, mixed them together, boiled them, sauted, and brought together an incredible meal of various flavours and textures.
Our menu consisted of Clear mushroom and Veggie Soup, Basic yellow sauce, minced chicken grilled on bamboo stick, chicken in coconut curry, veggies in peanut sauce, coconut and snake bean salad, steamed tuna in banana leaf, deep fried tempe in sweet soya sauce, and boiled banana in palm sugar syrup.
It was amazing! We were proud of what we could create from scratch. The veggies were from their personal organic garden, the meat bought from a producer. The kitchen was spacious, clean and the equipment in excellent shape.
Their home was the perfect place to experience a Balinese Cooking Experience!
