The Creation of Bumbu Bali
Bali's first authentic Balinese restaurant was created following the principals used in designing a traditional Balinese home compound. On our menu you will not find Balinese food commonly served in hotels and tourist restaurants, as it is our aim to serve Balinese food the way you would find it prepared in Balinese homes or for traditional ceremonies. We will take you on a journey into the culinary delights our island paradise has to offer. Countless trips into villages, homes and temples, together with an endless drive in researching deeper into the food culture of Bali have resulted in three highly acclaimed publications by Heinz von Holzen the Godfather of Bumbu Bali. In "The Food of Bali", "Bali Unveiled: The Secrets of Balinese Cuisine" and "Balinese Culinary Adventure", one will discover many secret dishes and delights served on our menu.Recognized by locals and visitors alike as the leading Balinese Restaurant in Bali, and the many awards received since opening our small door in 1997, together with the incorporation of every day Balinese life into a harmonious surrounding will ensure a most memorable and authentic dinning experience.

Bali Cooking School

Discover the flavors, tastes and spices from our magic island of Gods. Throughout the class you will be guided into the many secrets, and flavors of Bali and at the same time, discover and feel the peacefulness of a Balinese home.

The lesson will be hosted by Heinz von Holzen, author of the highly acclaimed cook book, The Food of Bali, and his Balinese wife Puji. You will not only discover the secrets of a traditional home, but you will also be taken to the markets, where you will purchase the ingredients for your class.

At the entrance of the restaurant, we have recreated an authentic Balinese kitchen, where we actually will conduct the class. Participants will have a chance to participate in the preparation of the dishes.

This exciting program is ideal for enthusiastic chef’s and home cooks who like to bring home more than just a few photos from our magic island, or as part of an incentive spouse program who like to use this opportunity as a motivational team building event, or for the adventures traveler who would like to explore more than just the beautiful sights of the Island of Gods.
