The Food of Chef James Ephraim
Chef James Ephraim is a native of England where he started as a sous-chef with the renowned Grosvenor Hotel. A strong culinary starting point by any standard, Chef Ephraim’s London employment led him to cook at exclusive events including regular appearances at the Estate of the Duke of Westminster. Later, leaving his native England, Emphraim exchanged hemispheres for new culinary experiences in the South Pacific and Australasia. He became part of the opening team of Bracu Restaurant in New Zealand where he worked as chef de cuisine, extending his stay down-under at Lizard Island Barrier Reef Resort.
Eager to travel and experience the world’s cuisines, Ephraim also work at Mugaritz in Spain before moving to his new adopted island home of Bali. On the "Island of the Gods," Ephraim joined forces with the pioneering Chef Chris Salans of Mozaic Restaurant Gastronomique in the preparation of Mozaic’s signature modern Balinese Cuisine.
The House of Henri Giraud Champagnes
On hand at the Mozaic Beach Club on September 13, 2012 will be Claude Giraud, CEO of the Henri Giraud.
Founded in 1625, The House of Henri Giraud is located in Aÿ, Champagne, France - where Henri Giraud was producing wine long before the discovery of the champagne process that created the sparkling wine that is now synonomous with the region’s name. Henri Giraud is the oldest Champagne house still owned by its founding family.
Traveling to Bali will be Claude Giraud, the son of Henri Giraud, who became a négotiant-manipulant in 1990 - a designation given to houses that source the majority of their grapes rather than growing them directly.
Claude Henri is the 12th Generation to run the company, assuming his CEO role in 1982 and leading the move made in 1999 to only sell his family’s wine to selected families and outlets and offer them to the growing worldwide market.

“Claude Giraud makes some of the most unique, individualistic wines in Champagne. Al of the wines bear the an mistakable stamp of the Grand Cru vineyards of Ay. The top selections (Code Noir and Fut de Chene) are vinified and aged in oak, which plays an important role in shaping many of the finest wines here. At their best, the Giraud Champagnes offer incredible intensity, class and balance.”
