Chedi Ubud Fields Organic Menu from Local Fields
“What you see here in the garden is what will be plated,” said Dean.
The ‘Farm to Table’ experience is not merely a matter of eating, however. The 2 - 2.5 hour experience is equal parts horticultural survey, food prep and dining, all under the able hand of a Singaporean-born chef who has stood at the culinary helm of the Chedi Club for seven years.
The experience begins with a fortifying drink, and a wade into the organic garden where the maestro holds court among citronella, various basils (holy & purple) curry leaves and Vietnamese coriander.
Dean explains the story behind each plant, its properties, how it grows, what it’s used for, when to harvest, and other little known oddities (e.g. you can eat the flower of starfruit).
“Don’t be surprised if Chef Dean picks edible weeds and they end up on your plate later,” said one guest on a beta drive of the experience.
The menu varies but some of the dishes include mushroom chawanmushi with pomelo, a soup of young mango wrapped in chives with a homemade stock with Vietnamese coriander and kombu, basil gelato, eggplant rolls with purple yam and topped with edible weeds.
Lunch costs US $125++ per couple and dinner at US $200++, including garden tour and a 3-course lunch or a 5-course dinner with a pre-dinner cocktail and farewell gift. The Farm to Table package can accommodate a maximum of six people.
