What seems to most outsiders like one small town, Ubud actually consists of fourteen villages, each run by its own banjar, or village committee. Throughout Ubud are some remarkable places to eat, drink, learn and explore, all amongst a general feeling of peace and well-being.

  • What is one thing that unites Indonesia’s diverse cuisines? Sambal. Have you ever wondered how many types there are? Researchers from Gadjah Mada University recently listed 322 different recipes. Fanning the flames of the Ubud Food Festival’s love of all things spicy, this is our weekly #UFF19 Sambal Series featuring our favorite types of sambal from across the archipelago. Next up is sambal cibiuk from Garut, West Java.

Sambal cibiuk is named after the sub-district of Cibiuk in Garut. According to locals, no matter how spicy the sambal cibiuk is, those who eat it will never suffer from stomach ache. It’s quite a simple sambal, but the crunchy, chunky green tomatoes, tangy lemon basil (kemangi), sourness and spiciness makes for some very refreshing heat! Try making it at home with our recipe, which you can find in the Blog section of our website!
  • The wait is over! The theme of #UFF19 is Spice Up the World. In the words of UFF Founder & Director Janet DeNeefe: “We know Indonesian food isn’t as well-known overseas as the cuisines of its Southeast Asian cousins, but this won’t be for long! We chose the theme Spice Up the World to show food lovers across the globe that it’s time they added some Indonesian dishes to their list of favorites, and through this, learn something about Indonesia. Food is, after all, the easiest way to access a culture."

Sharing the Festival’s passion for celebrating Indonesian food at home and with the world, we are proud to announce that ABC, one of Indonesia’s leading food brands, will be our Presenting Partner for a second year. #UFF19 will be our spiciest Festival yet!
