Recipe Archive // Kitchen Stage: Showstopping Ceviche with Daniel Chavez

Posted: 06 July 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.

Let’s look back to the 2018’s Kitchen Stage with chef Daniel Chavez, where he whipped up ceviche al aji amarillo. The Peruvian dish ceviche is now a staple on seafood menus around the world, made up of raw fish, citrus, herbs and spices. Daniel Chavez, however, has a unique take in this recipe. He included mashed sweet potatoes for a plethora of playful texture.
