During the previous Baj 2015, Chef yann Bernard lejard stole visitor’s hearts for the first time with his enchanting edible art. like a painter maestro, chef yann will again change the empty plate to be his art medium filled with color play, form and composition, also combination of harmonious and complemented flavor. a flawless marriage of art and culinary, it is also parallel with the artistic atmosphere that will surround the vibe of Baj 2016 soon. incising various colors onto his empty plate, with full precision the chef sprinkles sauce and put on rigatoni or ribs onto the plate, resulting in not only an appetizing dish to spoil our taste buds but also a beautiful masterpiece for the eyes. truly an enjoyment for your senses.

Wonders of Weaving started from Byo living campaign to re-promote weaving art, which in fact has been an inseparable life element of indonesian society. the trace of weaving method can be seen from the cloth sling which is commonly used to carry baby to woven rattan that is usually applied on furniture or bags. inspired by this phenomenon, it is leading to the development of weaving art idea that went further and later realized in the Wonders of Weaving.
