James Viles Returns To Bali For a Forage and Cook-Off With Steven Skelly

On Wednesday the 29 of March, much-loved Australian chef James Viles is hitting the road (or skies) and bringing his imaginative modern food to Bali’s iconic Japanese inspired modern dining restaurant Uni, with celebrated chef Steven Skelly at the helm.

With a shared vision and commitment to the principles of sustainability, local produce and botanical ingredients, this talented duo will curate an exceptionally unique menu. Each dish carefully considered and individually inspired by the ingredients of Bali’s rich landscape. Charcoal will feature heavily, as well as foraged ingredients from a day exploring the together.

“The menu we are creating is using what we have at hand; it will reflect the island and highlight the relationship between the raw ingredient, the growers, and us the cooks” – James Viles Both James and Steven will present and personally serve throughout the evening. Expect a casual dining experience with the opportunity to talk to the chefs and discuss the inspiration behind each dish on the a la carte menu.

“It’s been a long time between drinks and I’m looking forward to welcoming James back to Bali, and discovering his favourite foraging spots on the island. We already have some great ideas for the menu and it’s going to be fun, tactile, and tasty.” – Steven Skelly Keeping the evening relaxed, there will be shared plates of varying sizes and cocktails by mixologist Jordy Outra.
