In 2017, the Ubud Food Festival will return for its third year from 12-14 May. Alongside Indonesian chefs, restaurateurs, producers and food professionals, celebrated culinary icons from around the world will dish up a program rich in fresh tastes and fresh ideas.

This year, the Ubud Food Festival will be infused with the theme ‘Every flavor is a story’. The theme celebrates Indonesia’s culinary heritage, in which every ingredient, recipe and culinary tradition tells a story of the archipelago’s history, geography and diverse cultures.

Across the Festival’s three-day program, members of the culinary industry and food lovers alike will unpack flavors, traditions and regional influences to deepen their understanding of not just what food tells us – but of the stories we tell through food.



Cooking Demonstrations

Cooking Demonstrations are one hour demonstrations of a chef's technical prowess and culinary passion, all dished up with a healthy dose of charm. There are five per day, across each of the three days of the Festival.

  • Pak Bondan, sang jurnalis kuliner favorit semua orang, menjelaskan mengenai hal-hal yang membuat cita rasa nusantara begitu unik dan bervariasi.

"The Indonesian culinary scene is like a salad bowl, with a whole romaine, tomato and cucumber in it, so the Indonesian culinary scene means the Balinese culinary scene, the Padangnese culinary scene, and Melayu culinary scene, in which each stands on its own, creating a beautiful rainbow of culinary scenes" – One of Indonesia's most celebrated food journalists, Bondan Winarno explains what makes the archipelago's palate so varied and eclectic.
  • "The secret at #Jimbaran is cooking the #seafood over coconut husks for a delectable smokiness, and the moist heat of the husks creates tender meat with glazed and burnished skin without dryness. If you are flying into #Denpasar at night, the smoke from the barbecues at Jimbaran bay looks like an enormous bushfire." In today's #recipe, taken from the pages of our Founder & Director Janet DeNeefe's Bali: The #Food of my Island Home, we discover what makes Jimbaran such a #culinary hot spot for locals and visitors alike. If you want to taste it for yourself, check out our Fringe Event, the Flora and Fauna of Jimbaran at the newly-opened @opiabalidining

"Daerah Jimbaran memiliki rahasia memasak hidangan laut di atas sekam untuk mendapatkan rasa unik, dan teknik ini juga menghasilkan daging yang lembut dengan lapisan luar yang terbakar. Jika Anda berada di Bali pada malam hari, asap dari pembakaran di teluk Jimbaran akan terlihat jelas." Di resep hari ini, diambil dari buku karya Founder & Director Janet DeNeefe, Bali: The Food of my Island Home, kami menemukan rahasia di balik mengapa Jimbaran selalu digemari turis maupun orang lokal. Jika Anda ingin merasakannya, ikut serta di Fringe Event UFF17, the Flora and Fauna of Jimbaran di OPIA yang baru saja dibuka.
