Cooking Competition in Ubud

      UBUD Hotels Association (UHA) celebarates its 13th anniversary with a chef competition for its member hotels on 9 December 2017. As a tourism destination Ubud is known around the world not just as a culture destination, but as a culinary destination as well. It is home to several world class restaurants and local delicacy restaurants. Yet true authentic Balinese cuisine, particularly from around Ubud, is still relatively unknown even to local tourists.

     In response to this UHA has taken the initiative to hold the 2017 UHA Chef Competition. In holding this event UHA hopes to play an active role in (re)introducing local cuisine to international as well as local tourists and travelers alike; in developing local talent to be more innovative in presenting authentic recipes handed down for generations; and, in giving a positive impact on the local community through improving the quality of food made available to visitors.

      Thus, the competition is open to participants up to Chef De Partie level only from UHA member hotels. Participants will be required to prepare a traditional Balinese main dish presented in fine dining style using pre-determined main ingredients. To complement this, participants must also show their talents in preparing and presenting traditional Balinese desserts. Judging, conducted in collaboration with the Ubud Chef Community (UCC).

     Ubud Hotels Association was founded in 2005 as a non-profit organization. Over the years its membership has grown from 4 to 80 hotels located in 3 districts: Payangan, Tegallalang, and of course Ubud itself. Its main purpose is to lobby for the preservation of Ubud as a unique destination; to actively participate in the development of tourism in Ubud by actively communicating with all stakeholders; and, to provide concerted marketing efforts for its member hotels. *BTNewspaper/pr
