Celebrity Chef Margarita Fores wows diners at Uma Cucina

As part of this year’s beloved Ubud Food Festival, Uma Cucina, the rustic Italian-inspired restaurant and lounge bar at Uma by COMO, Ubud, invited Filipina chef and restaurateur Margarita Fores to wow its diners during a one-off, exceptional three-course dinner on 28th May. Voted Best Female Chef in Asia at the San Pellegrino Fine Dining Awards 2015 and known for her passion for organic ingredients and healthy eating, Margarita worked alongside the fabulous kitchen team at Uma Cucina to create an exciting three-course menu using ingredients from both land and sea. Highlights included a Prawn and Crab Raviolo and a Millefoglie with Smoked Kesong Puti and Candied Tomatoes.

The sensational evening was hosted on the open-air terrace and within the comfort of the cosy restaurant, and also presented contemporary cocktails that incorporated classic Italian influences and local Balinese flavours, perfectly in line with the theme of this year’s Ubud Food Festival: “Go Local.”
