Your hosts have been carefully selected all speak good english and love to cook and welcome guests. Its the Balinese way!
Traditional Balinese cuisine includes wonderful dishes like urab (bean sprouts and green bean salad with coconut), satay chicken or meat (to suit your taste) with fresh seasonal spices, peanut sauce made from scratch, a variety of curry dishes, Balinese rice dishes and steamed tuna in banana leaves (pepes). You will be introduced to local vegetables and learn how to use them in cooking, like Jackfruit and Snakefruit. Your 3-course meal includes a fresh coconut water beverage (beer or wine available on request) and a delicious desert which is either a surprise or the ever popular black rice pudding.
Your host family will adapt your meal to suit your dietary wishes if needed e.g gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, halal or a specific special dietary requirement. Just note this on the booking form.
Village plate is a community initiative and allows for a genuine cultural exchange where you meet a local Balinese family and you get a glimpse into village life. It is a great way to make new friends and enjoy the benefit of this cross-cultural, authentic experience, which is equally as fascinating for both parties.
And whats even more important is that you are giving back directly to the Balinese people as the majority of the money you spend goes direct to the family: 5% of your money spent supports underprivileged children in Bali through Anak Bali and other 5% to education and cultural programs in Borneo to Ransel Buku, Hornbills and Ranu Velum.
