Flavours of Marriott Indonesia Culinary Journey 2017

Welcoming Indonesia’s 72nd Independence Day and following the success of Marriott Indonesia Culinary Journey in 2016, six Marriott hotels in Bali have gathered for the Marriott-Bali Culinary Journey - Flavours from the Island of the Gods. From 12 August to 19 August 2017, Chefs from The Stones, Legian, Bali - A Marriott Autograph Collection Hotel, Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak Resort, Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort, W Bali - Seminyak, The Westin Resort Nusa Dua Bali, Four Points by Sheraton Bali, Seminyak, will join forces for a special gastronomic collaboration to celebrate the island’s culinary heritage.

“We are very excited to announce the second annual Indonesia Culinary Journey presented by Marriott hotels in celebrating Independence Day. Indonesia, especially Bali is home to a vast array of culture and cuisine. We look forward to seeing the dishes featured throughout the seven days from each hotel as it represents unique family recipes from the most iconic regions in Indonesia,” said Marie Browne, Area Director of Operations, Indonesia & the Philippines at Marriott Hotels. Inspired by the concept of a classical six course meal, each hotel will prepare one course of this grand menu to represent their hotel during the promotion. During the preliminary stage prior to the exciting event, internal competitions will be held at each hotel in search for the most authentic and unique Indonesian dish, judged by a group of food experts and local chefs. The six chefs along with the winning dishes will then join the culinary journey to represent their hotels across Indonesia.

Representing Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak Resort is Chef I Gede Sanjaya. Sanjaya was born and raised in the small village of Gelgel in Klungkung regency. He started his career at Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak Resort as Commis 3 in 2014. When he is not cooking up a storm at the hotel’s kitchen, Sanjaya travels to Lembongan for snorkeling, diving and fishing. He hopes to one day own a small restaurant providing catering services for weddings and special occasions. For this competition, Chef Sanjaya will be preparing “Selaman Be Pasih” (Mix Seafood with Balinese Spices), an authentic Klungkung dish, which, according to the people of Klungkung, is a proud inheritance from their ancestors. Up to this day, the dish is being served at grand ceremonies and weddings. Historically, it is reserved for those of the ‘higher caste’. As there is no pork in the dish, Selaman Be Pasih can be enjoyed by everyone.

When it comes to dining, Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak Resort is in a league of its own with amazing selections at the Seminyak Kitchen for all-day dining. Meat lovers can indulge in thick, juicy, delicious and moist quality meats, cooked to perfection at Seminyak Meat Shop that opens for dinner only. The resort’s modified VW Kombi Van, What The Truck!, located at the front of the resort, serves local fusion tacos including Babi Guling, Chicken Pelalah and Beef Rendang along with Mojitos, Beer and Bootstrap Coffee.
