About Slow Food Bali presents "Biodiversity and Local Cuisine"

SLOW FOOD BALI is pleased to invite you to the first in a series of "SFB Thirsty Thursday" events, where we will be exploring the importance of biodiversity in our local food systems.

In this special SFB event, Chef
Crystal Chiu of Asli Food Projects will share her research from recent travels to Central Kalimantan.  She will demonstrate two recipes unique to the Dayak Ngaju ethnic group that reflect the evolving stages of their cuisine — Kopu, a singkong (cassava)-based dish and Kenta, a ketan (glutinous, white rice)-based snack — both of which are at high-risk of vanishing.  You will learn about the recipes' origins and the current factors that challenge their existence. "Awareness is the first step for their preservation," says Chef Crystal. 

From this presentation, the discussion will broaden into the wider issue of biodiversity in the region, including similar patterns of change happening in Bali.

Come listen, learn, join the lively discussions, and enjoy the good company of Slow Food members and friends.  And we guarantee you'll be inspired with our unique food demos & tastings!

Slow Food was founded in 1989 in response to fast food and fast living, the loss of people’s local food traditions, and a general diminishing interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices can impact the world around us. Today Slow Food is a vast network of over 100,000 members from 150 countries, grouped in local chapters called convivia, who are working together to defend their local culinary culture.Slow Food is a way of living and a way of eating.
