Posted: 29 June 2020 Category: Blog

Since Ubud Food Festival first launched in 2015, we’ve had countless of chefs and culinary figures joining us on our cooking demo stages, Kitchen Stage and Teater Kuliner. To refresh your memory on the fun and endearing Festival experience, we would like to share some of the best recipes from those stages that you can try at home.

Today, we are taking you all the way back to UFF16 at Jon Priyadi’s Kitchen Stage. Jon told the story behind Indonesia’s complex ceremonial dishes in this mythical Kitchen Stage demonstration. Drawing from the Sumatran Forests of his homeland, chef Jon Priadi cooked up few dishes from the ceremonies there, one of them being dendeng batokok or smoked beef.
