Ubud Food Festival in Bali, Celebrate Indonesia’s Food HeritageBlog , News and Events
Bali, Indonesia – Calling all food lovers and scrumptious eaters, Ubud Food Festival in Bali will be returning with bigger and better concepts to serve your appetites from April 13-15th 2018. Situating at the lush Ubud sceneries, enjoy the view of green paddy fields while craving for a taste of authentic Indonesian cuisines, from Balinese Bebek betutu to the peculiar yet delicious Papua’s juicy Sagoo worm.
Since its debut back in 2015, the Ubud Food Festival (UFF) has grown into Southeast Asia’s prominent culinary event, showcasing the diversity of Indonesia’s food and local products. With an ambitious mission for bringing Indonesian food scene to the world, Ubud Food Festival stands with its stance to ensure that Indonesia food will always be the spotlight for the entire event. This is celebrated through exposing Indonesia’s Food Heritage from worth savoring stories, sharing minds with food heroes and environmental activists, as well connecting local producers with world-class chefs and restaurants to liven up Indonesia’s food industry.
With the vibrant programs that Ubud Food Festival offers, there are always a room and budget for everyone to enjoy the time. Expect plenty of cooking demonstrations by international chefs, high energy cook-off, hilarious culinary competitions until in-depth discussion in thought forums about recent issues and public tours exploring early morning markets. The good news? Some of these events are free from admission to accommodate all visitors’ needs.
Despite its various programs, the Ubud Food Festival as general divides into four main category events. There is Kitchen Stage as the home to fiery cook-offs session, culinary collaboration within top international chefs. Sit back and enjoy the aromatic spices from the deliciousness of diverse Indonesia cuisines, perfectly crafted by Indonesian most talented chefs in Teater Kuliner. The Think, Talk, Taste session gives opportunities for producers and consumers to gather and share ideas from business potentials until promoting food sustainability in the future. After the close of the Ubud Food Festival, visitors can still mingle with new colleagues and clients in a social affair of Fringe Event, which takes place at Bali’s hippest dining places.
According to Janet DeNeefe, the founder of Ubud Food Festival commented that “the establishment of UFF has played a vital role to bring Indonesia in a world food map,” In last year’s event, the Ubud Food Festival has successfully attracted more than 9000 visitors to come. While the programs remain the same, each year the concepts are continually changing to evoke audiences curiosity.
For instance, this year’s main theme is about “Every flavor is a story.” The idea compels the audience to consider that not only food can have a story, but there are also stories created by the person behind the food.
To actualize this core value, the Ubud Food Festival invites local food heroes such as Charles Toto, who lures us back into his Papua roots by presenting his delicate dishes, such as sago pizza with toppings of deer meat and worms using Papua’s most fertile forest ingredients. Watch Tassia and Gracia Seger, known as The Spice Sisters in action as they cooked their beloved home dish, a deep fried fish paired with tangy coriander sauce that will remind audiences a lot through their competitive times in My Kitchen Rules. Last but not least, Jethro Vincent is ready to share his savvy business secrets in the food industry as the creative director that contributes to the creation of Sisterfields, BO$$, and Bikini.
