The Moveable Feast

Inspiration for aspirational foodies to go beyond the dining room.
Bali’s Best Chefs is a new dining room concept that held its inaugural dinner recently to wide acclaim with the help of 12 esteemed guests, one of the island’s most skillful chefs, a sommelier and five-star wait staff – all wrapped up in one of the island’s most dramatic locations, The Longhouse villa, a very sophisticated tone indeed. As a professional photographer, company owner Deborah Cayetano, puts her taste for dramatic landscapes and good taste to fine use to bring together like-minded travellers and Bali residents for an evening of fine wine, excellent food, and conversation. Unaware of whom the other guests will be dining with until everyone has arrived for cocktails, there is a sense of Bali meets Hollywood in an evening that is staged to perfection.
Chef Vincent of Warisan restaurant created a wonderfully luxurious menu with gratin scallops with leek and fennel, Wagyu rolls stuffed with foie gras in black truffle oil, prawn sate with ginger caramel sauce and crispy gyoza stuffed with snail and shitake. All accompanied by a selection of great wines that flowed through the evening with each course.
As time passes Bali’s Best Chefs will expand to include garden parties and private beach soirees, all hosted by the best chefs on the island and washed down with some of the finest wines in this hemisphere. Following the success of The Longhouse event, interest in the next dinner is high so interested parties should get in quick as numbers are limited.
