Whether a cooking enthusiast, a health conscious fanatic or travelling with family, guests can choose their preferred cooking class for their own unique foodie experience.

For example, the Balinese Cuisine and Market Tour takes guests on a trip to Klungkung market and then into the kitchen to create Bali’s most popular dishes. Learn how to use the ubiquitous Ulekan (Balinese mortar and pestle) to make a famous Balinese Nasi Goreng (fried rice), and Sate Ayam (grilled chicken skewers) with Bumbu Bali (curry paste) and Bumbukacang (peanut sauce).

Behind the creation of these delicious dishes, is authentic chef and teacher, Executive Chef Nyoman Santika. Born and bred in East Bali, he has now returned to his homeland to teach guests how to cook the dishes he knows and loves.

Alila Manggis recently launched a cookbook titled Cooking My Way Through East Bali, for those who want to continue cooking these signature Balinese dishes at home. The cookbook features a number of Chef Nyoman’s signature dishes in an easy to follow step by step format.

Guests who stay a minimum of three nights at the resort between now and 30 September 2013 will have the chance to enjoy a free half-day food experience. The complimentary culinary experiences are valid for a minimum stay of three consecutive nights until 30 September 2013.
