In late January, Viceroy Bali hosted an amazing eight-course, nine-restaurant, 10-chef lunch with 100 percent of the proceeds going directly to the Bali Children’s Project charity. This non-profit organisation has been working to break the cycle of rural poverty for almost twenty years by providing scholarships and supporting education to change the lives of both those receiving it and their families.
A host of excited guests gathered in Apéritif at Viceroy Bali for the fundraising lunch, which opened with aperitifs in the bar. Through a combination of an excellent dining experience and sponsored raffle prizes, which combined gourmet dinners with luxurious hotel stays, the event raised over IDR227 million for the charity. The chefs all brought their best game to the lunch, each presenting a signature dish as part of the meal, from the breads and canapés, through to the dessert.
The guest chefs were Maurizio Bombini from Mauri, Chris Salans from Mozaic, Maxie Millian from Merah Putih, Kieran Morland from Sangsaka, Wayan Kresna Yasa from Kaum, Douglas Mourou from Mason, Min Siah from Starter Lab, and the three home chefs, Nic Vanderbeeken and Alexander McKinstry from Apéritif, and Wouter Eggermont from CasCades.
Each of the impressive chef contributions showcased the outstanding culinary talent on the island of Bali, as well as the in-depth use of predominantly locally sourced ingredients, local flavours and international flair and technique, which came together for a meal to remember.
