Komaneka Host Two Prominent International Chef for ‘Trading Spaces’ 2019
Komaneka is proud to announce that they will host two renowned names in culinary industry for "Trading Spaces" event this year. Chef Eelke Plasmeijer (Restaurant Locavore, Ubud) and Joris Bijdendijk (RIJKS® Amsterdam, Netherlands) will exchange their continental expertise, restaurant and lives.
From May 23-26th 2019, both chefs will simultaneously move their entire restaurant to the other side of the world. Chef Joris and his team are- flying to Bali; where they will only have a few days to transform Restaurant Locavore into a familiar habitat before challenging themselves to create a menu using local ingredients they have been able to source, whilst chef Eelke will be doing the same in RIJKS®, Amsterdam.
The rules of Trading Spaces are simple: Each chef travels to their new, temporary environment with no ingredients, recipes and with only a few helping hands. They will soak up the local culture before eventually preparing their signature menu at their new restaurant. Guests can anticipate an unforgettable culinary adventure.
In line with Komaneka’s vision of showcasing Indonesia though art & culture it was a natural choice to partner with Locavore to support Trading Spaces where Indonesia will be on show in Amsterdam whilst the RIJKS® team will be exposed to the best of Ubud & Bali. Locavore is excited to be working with Komaneka for Trading Spaces, knowing that the RIJKS® team will be well looked after whilst they stay at Komaneka Rasa Sayang, which is conveniently within walking distance from the award-winning restaurant.
For reservations you can book through www.tradingspaces.nl seats are very limited with Lunch served from Thursday - Sunday, and Dinner from Thursday - Saturday at Restaurant ‘RIJKS®’ in Ubud, Bali and Restaurant ‘Locavore’ in Amsterdam.
BNI Plataran Xtrail 2!
After the big success of the first BNI Plataran Xtrail Event from last year, West Bali National Park decided to host the second annual Xtrail Event in Plataran. The Xtrail is the biggest running marathon event in Bali, which attracts all the best athletes of Bali. The Xtrail will be a qualification round for the 2018 Asia Trail Master championship.
Besides the Xtrail, there will be all kinds of festivities and cultural attractions in the West Bali National Park which will make the whole event perfect, not only for the runners but also for the supporters and visitors.
The choices of trails are different since there are different levels of runners. The pros will be running a 70km track, while the intermediate runners will run for 30km and the families and beginners will run a track for 7.2 km long.
Every year the event supports a different cause to support their local communities, while preserving the natural environment and wildlife. This year, the cause is to increase public awareness of costal and marine ecosystems through an endemic tree planting program and the Bali Starling release program.
Plataran itself is founded in 2009, which is a company that encloses facets for tourism in nature development areas all over Indonesia. Plataran is committed to be a True Indonesian Icon.
