OFFER ID 1305721

Putu lives in her ancestral village in a traditional Balinese family compound. When travelers arrive they will meet her grandparents, her husband, Pasta, as well as their three children. Putu learned to cook as a child, helping her grandmother prepare the daily meals. Her cooking skills have grown into a career and personal passion. Putu works as a cook at two private villas, creating fresh and creative Balinese dishes to delight her guests. She takes pride in her presentation and artfully decorates the dishes with delicately carved fruit and vegetables. At home, she is responsible for making the temple offerings, from small offerings to large fruit towers that she carries on her head during temple ceremonies. Putu also makes homemade jamu, traditional health tonics made from turmeric. Putu’s grandparents are rice farmers and travelers will be served their homegrown rice with their meal. Putu and her family will take travelers on a tour of their compound and show you their family temple and explain about the objects in the temple. They have a lovely orchard where they grow jackfruit, cacao, durian, coffee and bananas. They also keep pigs, ducks, chickens and a cow. Travelers can enjoy an authentic Balinese feast, or can opt for a hands-on cooking class where they wil learnl to prepare 2-3 authentic Balinese dishes in Putu's modest kitchen with a two-burner cooktop. Putu also offers an optional market tour where travelers can visit the Pejeng market and be introduced to a variety of seasonal fruits, vegetables and spices before returning to Putu's home for their cooking lesson.
