The Indonesian Academy of the Bocuse d Or, the world’s most prestigious culinary competition, is happy to announce a series of Bocuse d’Or dinners to celebrate the recent participation of the Indonesian team as one of the finalists at the Bocuse d’Or 2021. As you may very well know already, Indonesia was invited to join this year’s finals of Le Bocuse d’Or. This competition, founded by Chef Paul Bocuse in Lyon, France, in 1987, brings together 24 countries from around the world to compete for the title of World Champion of gastronomy, highly regarded amongst professionals and media as the Culinary Olympics of the world. Indonesia was honoured to be invited for the finals based on the Asian regional selections of Le Bocuse d’Or in Guangzhou, China, in 2018 at which time the Indonesian team was led by Chef Bayu Retno Timur the Chef de Cuisine of the Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Ubud, Bali. For the recent finals in Lyon on September 2021, the Indonesian team was led by Chefs Mandif Warokka and Lufti Nugraha of Blanco par Mandif (Ubud, Bali) with Chef Chris Salans of Mozaic restaurant (Ubud, Bali) as head coach and Chef Gilles Marx (Amuz, Jakarta) as president. It is with great excitement that we announce that the team of Chefs has decided to come together to share the culinary creations that they presented during the Bocuse d’Or competition in Lyon. The chefs will unite to showcase their amazing creations just as they presented them to the Juries of the Bocuse d’Or – 5 astounding dishes prepared as a 5-course tasting menu accompanied by Amuse- Bouches and Petits-Fours. Supported by Aqua Reflection, Classic Fine Foods and Penfolds, the first dinner of the series will take place at Mozaic Restaurant Gastronomique in Ubud, Bali, on 20 November 2021. The second dinner of the series is planned at Amuz restaurant in Jakarta on 9 December 2021. Seating will be limited due to the complexity of execution of the menu and therefore pre-reservations are required.
