South America and South East Asia Meet in Rumari and Friends Chapter Two

After the huge success of our Rumari and Friends event in January, Raffles Bali is pleased to announce Rumari and Friends Chapter Two on 31 March and 1 April 2023.

Rumari and Friends is a celebration of cultures, evoking a melting pot atmosphere through friendships and the sharing of traditions and flavours. Combining the expertise, ingredients, and personal styles of two world-renowned chefs allows the creation of unique and exclusive gastronomic experiences for our guests.

This collaborative dinner experience is set to be an unforgettable one with Raffles Bali’s Culinary Director Chef Gaetan Biesuz and his incredible culinary team welcoming Chef Ricardo from MONO Hong Kong to their kitchen.

Classically trained in French fine dining, Venezuelan native Chef Ricardo now uses his knowledge and technique to elevate the complex and diverse South American cuisine of his roots in a modern tasting menu at his breakout restaurant MONO. Awarded a Michelin Star and named one of the Top 50 restaurants in Asia by @theworlds50best in 2022, there are surely many more accolades to come in 2023.

From South America to South East Asia, where Chef Gaetan’s passion for the local cuisines shines through in his creative dishes on Rumari’s menu. Sustainability is key in Chef Gaetan’s kitchens, with the majority of ingredients hand-selected from local growers, fishermen, and producers or the resort’s own farm gardens. Expect Rumari and Friends Chapter Two to showcase the absolute finest Indonesian produce and exotic tastes from around the archipelago.

Extraordinary dishes deserve an extraordinary setting with which Rumari never fails to disappoint. The main dining room’s breathtaking ocean views and renowned Jimbaran sunsets create an idyllic backdrop to this exclusive evening. Surrounded by nature, the fruits of the surrounding land on the table, the deep-rooted connection with the island of Bali is discernible.

Fine dining enthusiasts and sustainability connoisseurs alike will be moved by this evening of connection exploration, and innovation within the gastronomic horizon. Rumari continues to delight even the most refined palates of well-travelled connoisseurs on their visit to Raffles Resort Bali.
