This exclusive cooking class from Plataran Canggu introduces you to one of Bali’s most iconic culinary creations: sambal. For lovers of spice, there can be no better experience than sampling the many and varied hot sauces, chutneys and marinades for which the island is famous.

Try your hand at making this delicious local specialty. Made from rice flour and sugar mixed with suji or masak leaves, lak lak pancakes are a simple yet irresistible treat, served with shredded coconut and liberal helpings of palm sugar.

Lawar is made from a mixture of fresh vegetables, coconut and minced meat, blended with a fragrant array of local herbs and spices. Learn to make it yourself, and take the recipe home to share with your loved ones.

Roll up your sleeves to craft your very own Jamu; a traditional herbal medicine made from natural ingredients such as roots, leaves, bark and fruits. Secret tips will be shared for you to take back home and try.
