While Ubud may have the reputation for being Bali’s cultural hub, it seems soon Seminyak will nab its crown courtesy of a special traditional feast taking place this May. Two of the island’s most renowned chefs, Will Meyrick of Sarong Group and Kevin Cherkas of Cuca restaurant, have partnered for a special dinner to celebrate the best of Kalimantan cuisine.

Taking place on Saturday May 11 at 7.00pm the Kalimantan Dinner will be hosted at Will’s much loved Som Chai Bali restaurant in the heart of Seminyak. As the event’s name suggests, the evening will be a foray into Kalimantan cuisine, the little-known Indonesian province on the island of Borneo. In pursuit of knowing more about the district and its edible delights, the chef duo landed in southern Kalimantan recently to discover the stories behind its delicious traditional dishes.

They immersed themselves in the history, recipes, culture and nature of the region and merged their experience with their lifetime of knowledge in the kitchen, for a traditional feast they can’t wait to share.

This special event is a true collaboration built on joint discoveries, discussions and ongoing experimentation. “Will sees a new dish as a child sees a puppy, the excitement and love he has for food is unlike anyone else I have ever met,” says Kevin about his partner in crime. But it seems Will is just as much a fan. “Kevin grasps the stories behind dishes; his thought process allows him to see things in a completely new way.”
