The food culture in Bali is undeniably fantastic. Home to some of the most impressive traditional restaurants, innovative vegan eateries, epic post-surf cafes, and exquisite fine dining establishments anywhere in the world, a food tour of Bali is never complete.

The hospitality sector in Bali is in constant evolution. This is why the island continues to be one of the world’s most highly sought-after travel destinations.

From 5-star hotels to lavish private villas, from concierge services to local drivers and welcoming local communities, Bali makes tourists feel so at home during their visit.

Now, in a bid to further promote the food scene on the island and to support young, local culinary talent, the provincial government is investing in training dozens of young aspiring Balinese chefs in patisserie skills.

The Office of Cooperatives, Small and Medium Enterprises, and Trade of Badung have offered free training to dozens of budding local foodies.

The training has included not only patisserie and baking skills but also business training so attendees have the skillset necessary to become food entrepreneurs in the tourism industry.

This is great news for foodie travelers keen to explore new and exciting culinary experiences on the road.

Food culture in Bali may be synonymous with nasi campur, mie goreng, and even a classic Indonesian rending curry, but when it comes to patisserie and baking, the island is perhaps not the first place that springs to mind.

Noted by many people who have traveled extensively around the planet, Bali has some of the best quality and variety of food in the world.

Every morning at 4am trucks full of amazing vegetables and fruit are brought down from Bedugal where they grow at 4000ft elevation in some of the most fertile soil on earth. Not irradiated like the western countries, it's as fresh as you can get. Along with top notch chefs and great prices you've got a winner.
