Bali Asli, Real Culinary Experiences
Restaurant Cooking School Destination
BALI ASLI is located in Gelumpang village, near the town of Amlapura, Karangasem regency, in north east Bali. It is about 2 hours drive from the airport, and 30 minutes from both Candidasa village and Amed village. BALI ASLI is nestled in the foot hills of Mount Agung, Bali’s most sacred mountain, surrounded by rice fields, there is not a building to be seen.
Bali Asli promotes Balinese cuisine and culture without exploiting it or it’s people. We embrace our community, supporting those who fish, farm and forage in the nearby fields, ocean and jungle.
Our menu offers authentic Balinese food using a traditional Balinese style kitchen. We cook on wood-fired, mud brick stoves, allowing the real flavours of Bali to shine. Most of our ingredients are either grown in our garden, in our neighbour’s garden or purchased from the local market
The cooking school runs unique classes themed on “a day in the life of...” every class includes an adventure into local areas off the beaten track. Whether it is learning how to plant rice or plough with a cow, fishing in a jukung canoe and cooking on an open fire or making cocktails from cashew nut wine, our students always leave with fond memories and new skills to experiment with when they get home.
