Since arriving in Bali, Egidio has been busy acquainting himself with the availability of local produce, including fresh seafood caught daily in the coastal waters of Jimbaran Bay near the resort. He has also been working in the Resort’s on-site garden, supervising the planting of vegetable to ensure a year-round supply of fresh herbs and other organic ingredients.
