editor’s note

Welcome February The month of love What is love? For me, I always see myself surrounded by love. Looking at green carpeted rice fields or a violet sunset sky from the edge of the beach can make me feel in love again, while the sweetness of a caramel mousse can take my heart away. Food can be a great expression of love, whether a small barbeque with friends or homemade pasta for a romantic dinner at home. The smallest things sometimes give us the most joy, like a scoop of vanilla ice cream that can easily remind us about the sweetness of love. With Valentine’s Day in February, love is certainly everywhere. But love is more than chocolates or flowers or even candlelit dinners. Love is more than romance; love can also be a virtue of sharing some part of ourselves for the benefit of others. Those acts of love and ‘giving back’ are the subject of our Musings section (p.22) this edition, which uncovers the stories of dining venues that have a positive influence on both local communities and environment through acts of charity, fund raising and education. We also have stories about the tempting roasted pork at the newly opened Barbacoa (p.26); a journey of sweet escape at Ombak Restaurant, Alila Soori (p. 38); lunch in the wilderness at The Wana (page 46), and spicy cocktails served with live music at the eclectic venue, Red Drum (p.56). There is also an insightful interview with renowned chef/restaurateur Kali Sari (page 52.) Love is truly an open door, and to quote Julia Child, “They who eat good food will give back only the good things.”

Bali’s Melting Pot A famous hangout scene in downtown Petitenget, Mantra Restaurant and Bar is owned by famous surfer Tipi Jabrik. Every night there are crowds, especially on the weekends, but most people don’t know that their international dining menu also has a good selection of Indonesian food. Mantra offers classic, clean and healthy food with fresh ingredients and rustic presentation. “We don’t have any microwaves in our kitchen,” said Tipi, “Hence, every dish needs to be prepared fresh using local products.” A Balinese Curry starts our meal, made with shrimps and loaded with fresh vegetables that are still crunchy and have a typical soft coconut milk flavour. Sprouts, dried chilies and lime are served on the side for extra taste. The secret recipe Fried Rice is nice, with a subtle seafood flavour and this is the first time I have seen mushroom in fried rice, together with other vegetables and an Black Rice Pudding

The Love Berry

Despite its name, the strawberry is not classified as a true berry, because unlike a blueberry or cranberry it does not have seeds inside. It is actually a member of the genus Fragaria, also known as the rose family, which includes plums and apples.

Strawberries are rich in Vitamin C, and high in antioxidants which can help reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease.

Sometimes referred to as love berries, these dainty pink morsels are associated with love and flirtation. At wedding breakfasts in provincial France newly weds are traditionally served a soup of thinned sour cream, strawberries and powdered sugar.

20 let’s eat!

Despite their sweet taste, strawberries are low in calories, and make the perfect diet food. Mix with diced watermelon, fresh mint leaves and a squeeze of lime to create a tasty low fat snack.

Strawberry juice combined with honey can help reduce inflammation and sunburn. Rub the mixture thoroughly into the skin before rinsing off with warm water and lemon juice.

With Valentine’s day falling in February, love is certainly in the air and there is no shortage of romantic dining options in Bali for those who wish to celebrate. But there is more to love than chocolates, flowers and candlelit dinners; love is also a virtue that represents human kindness, compassion and a genuine concern for the good of others. We celebrate this month of love by highlighting some of the dining venues on the island that have a positive impact on the local community. Whether practicing sustainable development, sponsoring

In Kuta, Hard Rock Bali is most commonly associated with music and burgers, yet its roots lie deep in philanthropy – “Its part of our DNA,” says Hamish Dodds, Hard Rock Intl. President and CEO. Last October, Bali set the scene for the launch of their 6th annual, global “Imagine there’s no hunger” campaign, with a charity concert by Jakartan rock band, Kotak, which generated over US$10,000 for Sole Men Indonesia – a non profit organisation that focuses on helping cases of individual suffering in Bali. Working closely with Sole Men, the program includes delivering food parcels to 100 needy people living in the poorest areas of Denpasar three COMO Shambhala supports local kindergarten, Tirta Kumara.

Her newest venture, a restaurant in Kintamani, called Pulu Mujung has been created to generate local employment and training opportunities. Meanwhile, longstanding Bali Buda provides tasty wholefoods in its three cafes/shops while also supporting a number of projects, ranging from organic farming, to Eco Bali, to Rumah Sehat Madani, which provides maternal and general health care to the disadvantaged.

From my seat, I can see the stage where many international DJs have performed under the round cupola. A friendly waiter offers a long and enticing list of their newest drinks but I eventually end up asking him for his suggestion. He comes back with a small wooden tray baring a Buddha head aromatherapy candle holder and an Old Fashioned. “It’s nothing fancy, but is a classic cocktail with the aroma of mint to enhance your drinking experience,” he explains.

Arriving inside the restaurant, everyone is treated to a degree of extravagance, from a classy dÊcor that incorporates aesthetic design, velvety sofas, Renaissance-style paintings on the ceiling, and a neat open kitchen between the dining room and the bar. During the day, huge windows shower the dining hall in natural light, giving more energy to hearty Italian lunches, while nights bring a romantic atmosphere from the beautiful gardens and the lights of the surrounding skyscrapers. The main dining room exudes a sophisticated ambience, while two semi-private rooms are available – one of which is attached to a finishing kitchen, where guests are able to preview the final touches placed on their meals. Coming here for the first time years ago, I indulged in the abundance of fresh antipasti, with plenty of seafood, smoked salmons, carpaccio, and crispy vegetables. All those beauties were complemented with myriad of impressive mains and it has always been a joyous rollercoaster ride of flavours and textures here.

The Khao Soi is a Thai curry dish of red chili chicken soup poured on dried noodles and peanuts, with coconut milk giving rich texture and spice. If you like fish, try the Ikan Acar Kuning with vegetable acar pickles balancing the Tilapia fillet. Nasi Goreng Mawut is Indonesian fried rice served with the lot; rice, noodles, vegetables, boiled eggs and chicken.

Kali SARI

www.letseatmag.com


Apprenticing in her family’s restaurant in Perth, Kali Sari went on to master the art of Italian cookery in Sardinia, before winding up in Bali in the 80’s, spinning records at the legendary Double 6 Club. As the co-founder of three successful restaurants, and Saraswati Papers – which creates beautiful hand made recycled paper and paper products – Kali lives a life filled with colour and creativity. Here she talks about her love of Bali, and her genuine commitment to play an active part in her adopted community.

you are clearly a woman of many talents, do you have a favourite mantle?

A: Food is still my passion, and as part owner/Executive Chef, I create the menus and train the chefs, as well as designing the look and feel of the restaurants; and of course I compile the play lists! We adopt sustainable recycling practices, including the use of Saraswati products for our menus, brochures and business cards. Making food and making paper are both tactile and sensual pursuits – in a way both are basic cooking, and also give me the chance to work closely with a supportive team of Balinese people.

In turn they act as educators in their families and villages, sharing their knowledge about sustainability and creating a greener world.

Q: Any advice for foreigners wanting to set up a business in Bali? A: Working in Bali is a mutual exchange of knowledge, talents and skills. Sharing western logic with Balinese viewpoints is a powerful combination that can create a unique and enriching work experience.

Mama’s Crispy Crostata Crisp sweet pies with layers of strawberry jam have the taste of Italy, especially when baked by Mama Luigina. “I love to cook, and these are all my own recipes,” she says, showing us a towering stack of papers at her restaurant, Rustica, which has also become her living room. In honour of Valentine’s Day she has baked us a crostata adorned with love hearts, and graciously agrees to share her recipe. Ingredients 300 grams flour 130 grams softened butter 1 egg 1 egg yolk 70 grams sugar Lemon zest, shredded 1 teaspoon yeast Vanilla powder

Methods Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Mix all ingredients to form a soft dough. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, then take out and leave at room temperature for 5 minutes.
