Delight in the culture and cuisine of Bali in this indulgent tour which encompasses the 6th annual Ubud Food Festival.

Ubud has long been known as the artistic hub of Bali and is now equally known for its food and restaurant scene. I visited Ubud for the Food Festival this year and was delighted by the range of demonstrations, masterclasses, and tours on offer. We had some truly remarkable and extravagant lunches and dinners and I was very much won over and I will be taking a group up with me next year. Have a look below for details of the tour!

From 17 - 19 April 2020, Ubud Food Festival presented by ABC (UFF) will celebrate the unsung heroes of Indonesia's culinary cultures, who work tirelessly to put the best food on our plates. With the theme "Heroes", the nation’s leading food event will champion mothers, fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers who provide food rich in history and taste to their loved ones. 

For its sixth year, the Festival will explore how the diversity of the world's fourth most populous nation plays a vital role in its culinary delights.

Through special events and cooking demos, food tours and talks, workshops and masterclasses, music and performance, films and markets, the three day cross-cultural culinary adventure will introduce audiences to flavors far beyond rendang, sate, gado gado and nasi goreng.

“Since our inaugural event, the Festival has introduced Indonesia’s complex and diverse cuisines to food lovers across the globe,” said UFF Founder and Director Janet DeNeefe. “For our sixth year, we want to recognise and celebrate the people behind the extraordinary flavors and evolving stories of Indonesia’s culinary landscape.

“With the theme Heroes, we want you to meet the unsung heroes of Indonesian food, the mothers and fathers who cook their age-old family recipes at home. We want to honour their immense contribution to creating the rich flavors we all love,” DeNeefe continued. 

This is a small group tour only. To secure your place, please make a non-refundable booking deposit of $500 before the end of February.  Once the programme for the Food Festival is published, final payments will need to be made so that I can book events. The Special Events do book out very early. It's going to be fun!

The Ubud Food Festival was established by well-known restauranteur and promoter of Ubud - Janet De Neefe, who originally hails from Melbourne. Janet also started the Ubud Readers and Writers Festival, she owns Casa Luna and Indus Restaurants, Honeymoon Cottages and Bakery, Casa Luna Emporium and Casa Luna Cooking School. She is truly a remarkable woman!
