You’ve got to be early to bed the night before you start at the Bumbu Bali because school kicks off at 6am with a trip to the local vegetable and fish markets to get all the produce you’ll cook with throughout the day. It’s only when you get back that you’ll get a taste of a Balinese breakfast, with black rice pudding, sweet rice flour dumplings in palm sugar coconut sauce and mountains of fresh fruit, and then it’s back to work.

The chef Heinz von Holzen will take you through Balinese food preparation; first you’ll make basic spice pastes that you can use for several dishes as well as stock and different kinds of rice to go with your dishes. And then you’ll be ready to have a go at cooking Balinese treats like braised beef in coconut milk, grilled fish in banana leaf and raw chili with lemon grass. Once everyone has finished, the hard work of trying everything begins and although you will eventually have to tear yourself away from the table, you should have acquired the skills to create some of the specialties at home.
