It goes without saying that you will experience some of the finest food during your Bali yacht charter, but what if you had the opportunity to learn some of the secrets of traditional Indonesian cooking yourself?
Jimbaran Bay Cooking Academy, Four Seasons Resort Bali
Enter through a delightful stone-paved courtyard passing by the aromatic herb garden and you will reach the stunning Jimbaran Bay Cooking Academy on the southwestern coast of Bali. An enchanting hideaway and a wonderful place to bring your family during your yacht charter, this is the place to learn the secrets of delicious local Indonesian cuisine.
What do you learn?
In each session, guests are taken to visit the Jimbaran Fish Market to learn how locals shop for the freshest seafood, and pick indigenous ingredients from the garden. In the kitchen, the charming and experienced Chef Anak Agung Kristya Yudha will teach you how to prepare a five-course traditional meal based on local food from Bali, Java and Sumatra. You can look forward to cooking dishes such as “Sate rembiga” (traditional beef satay skewer with a spicy sauce), “Bebek betutu” (roasted duck wrapped in banana leaf) from Bali and a dessert of “Es doger” (young coconut, tapioca pearls and cassava with sweet milk) from Java.
A deeper connection
According to the general manager Michael Branham, “Food is a great way to create a deep personal connection and also enhance people’s cultural appreciation of Bali and Indonesia. Many of the recipes are based on old family traditions. Now our guests can take these recipes home and share these authentic dishes with their own family and friends.”
