At The Tunjung Boutique Resort, we invite foreign participants to a cooking contest. The Balinese Cooking Contest, which presents the wonders of Balinese cuisine, is the theme of this event. We proudly introduce Team Rockwool, a group of eight extraordinary individuals. The teams consist of Teams A, B, C, and D. In this case, each team will create an appetizer, main course, and dessert featuring Balinese culinary delights. Participants will receive guidance on how to cook.
This cooking competition consists of several stages. First, the Jukut Urab appetizer, then Sate Lilit as the main dish. In this case, we provide a plant-based version of Sate Lilit for vegan participants. Finally, participants made sweet Dadar Rolls as dessert. This competition showcases participants’ skills, teamwork, and innovation to create Balinese cuisine. At the end of the event, the team’s cooking will be judged based on the dish’s presentation, cooking speed, and taste. The competition results were Team C as 1st place, Team A as 2nd place, Team B as 3rd place, and finally Team D.
Next, participants enjoyed a unique lunch at Warung Puri Boga with Rijsttafel-style. The concept of this lunch, with various dishes on small plates, gives guests lots of choices. Guests enjoyed a delicious local Balinese lunch featuring the richness of Balinese tapestries. Apart from that, we also provide a menu for vegan participants. Lunch with a typical Balinese menu is one way to increase participants’ culinary knowledge of the Balinese menu. We care about the participants’ comfort, so we will do anything for them as long as it is within our capabilities.
Why Host a Balinese Cooking Contest?
Uniqueness always surrounds Bali in every aspect, including in the field of food. Balinese food is unique because it is rich in spices and has a strong taste. Balinese food is so diverse and flavourful. Therefore, it is very suitable as a menu for the Bali Cooking Contest. On the other hand, the selection of Balinese culinary specialties in this contest highlights the uniqueness of Bali’s culinary heritage. Then, it becomes an opportunity to introduce these culinary excellences to a global audience.
Balinese cuisine is dominant with the use of various kinds of spices. Participants can learn the names and shapes of cooking ingredients to increase their knowledge. The three menus in the contest represent culinary delights in Bali. People in Bali generally consume these menus. Generally, the form of Balinese food is not much different from the three menus. Participants can explore Balinese food after this contest is over.
The three menus in the contest have a simple appearance so that participants can participate well in the competition. The ingredients on the menu are straightforward for participants to find. In this case, we strive to create a learning environment for participants to understand the techniques and nuances of Balinese cuisine.
