Sharing his passion of street food experience, Somia’s Senior UX Consultant Bayu Amus participated in the last Ubud Writers and Readers Festival 2014 (UWRF) as one of The Kitchen’s speakers.
More than outlining about how to attain the best street food experience, avoiding the unpleasant street food experience, the presentation also covers how street food matters in promoting the local cuisine culture, as well as becoming inseparable part of a travelling experience.
The feat was in line with Bayu’s previous contribution into the topic, by researching and writing for Makansutra Indonesia 2013 Guide book in 2013, along with series of article writings done for in-flight and food magazines outlining the beauty of Bali’s street foods.
Presenting on the same topic was Ibu Amanda Katili Niode from Omar Niode Foundation, the Chair of Omar Niode Foundation, a nonprofit organization in Indonesia working to raise awareness on the quality of education and human resources in the field of agriculture, food, and culinary arts. She’s also Indonesia’s First Certified Culinary Travel Professional of The World Food Travel Association, as well as member of National Council on Climate Change, and Manager of The Climate Reality Project Indonesia.
To get a better exposure of the street food experience, Bayu also brought various street food satays for the audience to sample.
The Ubud Writers and Readers Festival 2014 (UWRF) brought together no less than 150 writers from around Indonesia and 25 other countries, sharing their view on global issues, big ideas and extraordinary stories.
