Spa, Farah Quinn, Kevin Cherkas of Cuca Jimbaran, Maurizio Bombini of Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve and Mandif Warokka of Teatro Gastroteque, the event started with a press conference held at the Astor Ballroom at The St. Regis Bali Resort, where the chefs shared their insights and excitement at being involved in such a wonderful event in support of this good cause. The Extraordinary Moonlight Dinner started with a pre-dinner cocktail overlooking the beautiful beach of The St. Regis Bali Resort. The six-course dinner began with an amuse-bouche of cured salmon by Chef Made Putra made of tamarind pearl, salty lime, kemangi sherbet and begonia petals. Chef Farah Quinn presented grilled tiger prawns on tomato, beef cheek, carpaccio, carambola-shallot relish, shaved bonito and micro coriander.
