Spend a Weekend with Bali’s Best Chef

Due to popular demand following the triumphal return of Bali Celebrity Chef Chris Salans to The Legian Seminyak, Bali celebrating the luxury hotel’s 25th Anniversary 27-29 August, Ubud’s Mozaic Restaurant Founder returns September 10 – 12, 2021, for another gastronomic weekend.

The Legian Seminyak

The Legian Seminyak will again present truly memorable meals over the three-day weekend period. Bali’s legendary Chris Salans will return to demonstrate why his Ubud restaurant is ranked among the world’s best and why its founder-chef was recently appointed to the prestigious Association des Maîtres Cuisiniers de France and also named a chevalier of France’s Légion d’honneur. 

Whenever Chris Salans returns to cook at The Legian, his memory fondly returns to the locale where he commenced his remarkable 25-year career in Bali as a young executive chef at the equally remarkable beachside hotel. 

Chris Salans

A published author of award-winning cookery books, Chris’ unique personal history magically intermingles the culinary traditions of the New World – his place of birth; the gastronomical eloquence of France – bestowed via formal training as a young chef in the homeland of his Mother; and professional expertise acquired in France and New York guided by the world’s leading chefs.

Spending more than 25 years in Bali has left Salans with a passion for Asian cuisine and the rich array of natural ingredients found in the region. The results of this eager embrace of Asian ingredients and the French cooking style are dishes unlike those found anywhere else. 

Admired both in Indonesia and internationally, Chris has served as a judge on Top Chef Indonesia and Iron Chef Indonesia. His impressive resume also includes a stint as consultant chef to the national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia. Befitting a legendary celebrity chef, Chirs Salans is instantly recognizable among Asia’s growing circle of “foodies.”

Returning to The Legian 10-12 September 2021

Those eager to sample Chris Salans’ incomparable cooking talents and perhaps meet him personally can do so by securing a booking for one of the limited seats available for any of the following dining opportunities spread across three days.

Friday 10 September – A Seafood Affair

Friday’s Seafood Affair features fresh seafood and live Jazz performance with a curated selection of wines presented by The Legian’s Head Sommelier, Suartika.

The fun begins with crafted cocktails, wines, and Champagne accompanied by canapés at 4:00 pm at The Champagne Bar.

As the sun settles off The Legian’s Beachfront, the focus of attention shifts to The Restaurant, where Chris has prepared a choice of à la carte and set menus available from 5:30 until 9:00 pm.

Saturday, 11 September – Saturday ad hoc with Chris Salans

The evening’s title of “ad hoc” echoes “for this purpose” – the original purpose that inspired the establishment of The Restaurant a quarter-century ago. The purpose remains unchanged – creating and curating fresh and delicious food for guests based on only the finest ingredients in Bali’s traditional markets.

Chris Salans and his talented culinary team will lovingly fashion each course-by-course accompanied with curated wine selections presented by Head Sommelier Suartika. 

Saturday ad hoc features live jazz performance to add, in an ad hoc manner – of course, to the merriment of the evening.  

As it did the previous evening, conviviality commences with expertly crafted cocktails, wines, and Champagne accompanied by canapés starting from 4:00 pm at The Champagne Bar.

Dinner is served from 5:30 until 9:00 pm in The Restaurant with a choice of à la carte or a set menu.

Again, seating is limited, and strict COVID-19 protocols apply.

Alfresco and enclosed dining options are available with live jazz music performed for brunch-time diners’ listening pleasure.

The Sunday Jazz Brunch is presented at The Restaurant and on the immediately adjoining poolside deck area.
