The Chris Salans Group in Bali is planning a very special gala dinner event to celebrate Indonesia’s Independence Day on 17 August, which coincides with the 17th anniversary of their celebrated Mozaic Restaurant Gastronomique in Ubud, Bali.
Since its birth in 2001, Mozaic has become renowned for its pioneering concept of combining ingredients and flavors from the Indonesian archipelago with fine imported ingredients such as foie gras, truffles, and caviar, using modern French techniques of cooking and presentation. This culinary approach has now become a movement in Indonesia, and Founder Chef Chris Salans has become an important mentor for young Indonesian chefs as well as an international ambassador for Indonesian cuisine.
Mozaic has received multiple awards and international recognition as the best restaurant in Indonesia and as one of the best in the world (www.lesgrandestablesdumonde.com). Mozaic’s cuisine was featured by Garuda Indonesia Airlines last year in order to promote Indonesian fine dining worldwide and Chef Chris Salans was featured as Iron Chef Indonesia 2017 on RCTI.
On August 17th, Indonesia’s Independence Day, Chef Chris Salans and his team will be putting together a very special event to celebrate the 17th anniversary of Mozaic. This event will be a gastronomic celebration and the theme will naturally be ‘Red & White’.
The evening will begin with an Anniversary Cocktail Party with champagne, canapés in the Mozaic Lounge to which not only guests of the evening will be invited but also one hundred or so hospitality industry people from Ubud—General Managers, Sales & Marketing Managers, and so forth.
The evening will continue with a choice of a special 6- or 8-course tasting menu. Chef Chris Salans will be in the kitchen himself cooking favorite dishes from the menu at Mozaic over the past 17 years, such as the Mozaic Caesar Salad, French Turbot Fillet in Oceanic Broth, Honey-Soy Baked Pork, Foie Gras in a Trio of Mango, Roasted Rack of Lamb, Seasonal Mangosteen Sorbet, and White Chocolate Moelleux, Raspberries and Tapiaco Pearls. As always at Mozaic, dietary restrictions can be accommodated by the kitchen.
Fine wines and wine pairings from Mozaic’s superb wine collection will also be especially designed for the evening. Mozaic’s carefully curated wine collection contains more than 180 vintages including 20 Grands Crus and has been awarded by Wine Spectator USA every year since 2005.
During the evening there will be a dynamic music and dance performance by Jasmine Okubo and her troupe of a program called “Spice Road,” a historical spice journey that will take you around the Indonesian archipelago with a variety of typical spices. The performers will move among the tables to entertain the guests.
The evening will finish with a specially created Anniversary Cake and cake-cutting ceremony for sharing with guests, and guests will be given special Mozaic gifts for them to take away and remember Mozaic’s 17th anniversary for a long time after.
Prices for the Mozaic Anniversary Dinner are Rp 1,6 million ++ for the 6-course dinner and 1,9 million++ for the 8-course dinner. Wine pairing: regular 650K++ for 6-course and 820K++ for 8-course; premium 990K++ for 6-course and 1,2 million++ for the 8-course dinner.
This evening of gastronomic delight and celebration will be a great opportunity for us to celebrate Indonesia and its culinary achievements over the past 17 years.
