This Crystal Adventures excursion MUST be pre-reserved.

Departing the pier, enjoy the half-hour transfer to Bumbu Bali Cooking School, where you will be warmly greeted by the chef de cuisine and begin your hands-on cooking experience.

Learn about the unique ingredients and preparation methods involved in Balinese cooking, which makes the most of fresh ingredients and local produce. As you prepare traditional dishes, you will master the technique of using the Balinese stone mortar and pestle to blend spices, mixing garlic, onion, turmeric, lemon grass, chili, galangal and ginger to create a delicate balance of curry called “Bumbu.”

Of course, you will taste the fruits (and delectable spices) of your labor as you sit down for dinner.

Having enjoyed a true taste of Balinese culture, return to your Crystal ship.
