unnamed (1)Hanging Gardens Ubud is proud to announce its Guest Chef programme for 2014. This luxury boutique hotel, set in the stunning jungle landscape of Payangan, North of Ubud, is already a favourite of sophisticated gourmet travellers. Hanging Gardens  has now handpicked selection of the world’s most established chefs to create their own gastronomic menus, drawing inspiration from their famous verdant tropical rainforest gardens.

Each chef will visit the hotel for a month and work closely with the hotel’s team of chefs, sharing recipes, learning and teaching new cooking techniques, taking part and giving cooking classes to guests, creating lunch and dinner specials and designing and cooking a unique wine-pairing dinner, available to both guests and non-guests.

unnamedAfter the month’s culinary immersion, each chef will create his signature dish to be included in the hotel’s menu. Each chef will also become involved in the hotel’s annual local community programme. This year the focus is on helping the local village plant and grow its own organic produce.

World-renowned Chef Adriano Ricco will launch the new guest chef series, starting in April 2014 with a mouth-watering wine-pairing menu, utilising the skills honed from 18 years of cooking in some of the world’s most famous kitchens in New York and his native Brazil, and combines his passion for Latin cooking with the quality of American bistro and the finesse of French cuisine.

Hanging Gardens Ubud is moving towards sustainability in the further development of cultivating organic produce around the estate. The hotel currently grows a wide range of fruits and vegetables such as mango, avocado, cacao, coffee, vanilla, mangosteens, star fruit and jackfruit, all of which are used in the kitchens and spa. Each guest chef will be invited to both add to and tend the gardens.
