Continuing from my first Payuk Bali Cooking Class post, here is the second part.
In part one, I mentioned about visiting the local market and rice fields before arriving at our final stop, Payuk Bali Cooking Class, as part of the package.
I also shared 4 recipes; one of which is the Balinese Multipurpose Spice Base –an important component in most of the recipes shared in my post.
As Payuk Bali Cooking Class is held in a traditional family residence, we had the opportunity of interacting with locals staying there.
Language was the main barrier to communication –most of them do not understand or speak English. Our communication with each other is conveyed through body language and genuine smiles.
We stepped into a little hut, where a lady of mild temperament dwells in during the day.
She spends her days roasting coffee beans and extracting coconut oil from fresh coconuts.
Soft-spoken in nature, she barely exchanged more than a few sentences with our guide, Agung, who speaks their native language.
