March 6, 2020, Sanu, Bali — Since its launch in February 2019, Kedai Kopi Hilly has become a place where families and friends get together and enjoy drink and delicious food from Hilly’s homemade recipes. This green cafe is located at CTC’s Center for Marine Conservation in Sanur.
A year has passed, and to commemorate the establishment of this café, CTC held a sustainable seafood and wine-pairing event on March 6, 2020. The event started with a cooking demonstration led by Balinese chef Chef Ketut Suaryana. Thirty enthusiastic participants joined the cooking demonstration featuring local seaweed salad and fish curry.
Following the demonstration, Nur Ahyani from WWF Indonesia gave a talk on sustainable seafood principles and how consumers can identify and access sustainable seafood in Bali. This was followed by a wine pairing experience under the guidance of Ni Nyoman Kertawidyawati, president of the Indonesia Sommelier Association, Bali chapter. Sponsored by Hatten Wines, the wine pairing portion focused on teaching participants how to pair food dishes with wine to enhance their dining experience.
The event concluded with a fine dining experience featuring sustainable seafood dishes, free flowing wine, and Kedai Kopi Hilly’s signature Klappertart dessert. Guests certainly enjoyed the evening’s gastronomic delights and went home with a special edition apron featuring the quote “food is the ingredient that binds us together.”
Stay tuned for more inspiring and unique experiences at CTC’s Center for Marine Conservation!
