Organic farming prevails in Bali so the bulk of the vegetables and fruit are organically grown and vegetables are frequently used in Balinese cuisine. Balinese cuisine is one of the most complex cuisines in the world and uses a great number of spices. Rice is a staple and it is accompanied by dishes of vegetables, meat, pork, chicken or fruit. Balinese are predominantly Hindu and therefore beef is rarely consumed.

Among the great number of spices used in Balinese food are ginger, garlic, shallots and turmeric all of which are very conducive to good health.

Babi guling (celeng guling), a spit roasted duck stuffed with chilli, turmeric, garlic and ginger is a hot favourite in Bali. Other Balinese delicacies include nasi campur Bali (nasi Bali) , a mixed rice with accompaniments like grilled tuna, fried tofu, cucumber, spinach, tempe beef cubes, vegetable curry, corn and chilli sauce. Nasi campur Bali is often served by street vendors wrapped in a banana leaf. Betutu is a roasted poultry dish (chicken or duck) with spices.

Kopi Balinese is Balinese coffee and Brem is a Balinese rice wine.
