Ubud Food Festival 2017 2

Bringing together almost 8000 people in 2016, along with more than 60 culinary icons from across Indonesia and the globe, the festival celebrates culinary heritage, fresh and innovative ideas, all areas of the dynamic, ever-evolving culinary industry, and the stories we tell through food.

Ubud Food Festival 2017 2

Ubud Food Festival 2017 is set to focus back in on Indonesia, with the objective to highlight the country’s rich heritage in food. This vast archipelago has developed a wealth of truly amazing cuisine, stemming from the mixture of cultures, climates , geography and history of each different area around the country.

That’s why this year’s theme is ‘Every Flavour is a Story’; this provides a platform for the festival and participants (you!) to delve deeper into the ingredients, recipes and traditions of food in Indonesia. It’s about time for Indonesia’s culinary scene to hit the global stage, don’t you think?

The event takes place 12-14 May 2017 and spans several venues around Ubud!
