The event will bring together the best chefs, bartenders and barista from Archipelagos Bali hotel collection of 16 hotels and villas, while a mass recruiting effort in form of a job fair will also be held on the same day from 10.00 AM to 12.00 PM inviting Balis brightest to join Archipelagos growing Indonesian hotel network of more than 100 hotels.

During this years cooking competition, emphasis will be set on the popular style of Asian Western fusion cooking as participating chefs will be given the challenge to present a two-course meal consisting of a seafood based appetizer and a meat dish as the main course.

The event will also feature a Barista competition which will follow the same rules as used for the famous World Barista Championships.

The Bartender competition will be divided into two parts focusing on creative cocktails as well as non-alcoholic mock-tails.

New to this years event will be the a fun filled Sambal competition (Chili competition), in which members of the audience will be asked to select Balis the best tasting Sambal and a Canape & Light Food exhibition and food tasting.

We are very fortunate to be able to hold this event again, which is now already in its fourth year. It is meant to showcase the talent of our local chefs and boost their motivation while at the same time intends to raise the profile of Balis Food & Beverage Industry in general, said Winston Hanes, Archipelagos Bali based Regional General Manager. Bali is well known for its many high profile fine dining freestanding restaurants but we as a hotel group want to demonstrate that not only luxury establishments but also mid-market and economy hotels can and should focus more on the quality of their restaurant offerings and the training and encouragement of our local, Balinese, talent.
