What is the Ubud Food Festival in Bali?

The first Ubud Food Festival was held in 2015 by Yayasan Mudra Swari Saraswati, who organises the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival every October. The Ubud Food Festival aims to place Indonesian cuisine at the forefront throughout the three-day festival. Every year, the increasing number of visitors, speakers, chefs, and authors has made this culinary festival the biggest in Bali. This is not only the place to gain a deeper insight into Indonesian cuisine and tradition but also a celebration of live music, film screenings, and discussions about food.

The author of the project On Bali

Hi everyone! My name is Catur, and I was born and raised in Central Java. I moved to Bali in 2011 but left the island in 2016 before returning in 2018. Bali feels more than a home to me, and maybe that’s why my name feels like a premonition. Catur means four, both in the Balinese and Javanese languages. It is spoken like ‘c’ in chess, which is also the meaning of my name in Indonesian.
