The Ibus of Ubud Cuisine

The Ibus of Ubud Cuisine

Ubud Now and Then has a new series of blogs written by Janet De Neefe about the amazing icons of Ubud cuisine.

Ubud has been the home to a wok full of Balinese mums
 who have been satisfying the hearts and appetites of international
 visitors for many years. These ‘domestic goddesses’ have helped shape 
the eating style of Ubud and set it on its dining feet. Their recipe
 for success has been simple: home-cooked food served with lashings of
 gracious Balinese hospitality.

I often feel shy to be a non-Balinese, 
expounding knowledge on Balinese food amongst these spice divas. I bow
 to the humble and lasting contribution they have made to our beloved
 town. And writing this article took me into a time-honoured space that 
also made me somewhat nostalgic. That’s what memories do, I guess.

The first one was about Ibu Canderi  and the second about Ibu Okawati.  A great idea and we look forward to the next installment.
