Risjtaffel is a shared dining experience that dates back to the times when Indonesia came under Dutch colonial rule. The name literally translates as “rice table” and this custom includes many different sampler dishes that can be enjoyed in a single sitting. Risjtaffel was often used during social situations to impress visiting dignitaries with an abundance of exotic food varieties. This type of banquet stood to represent the multi-ethnic character of the Indonesian archipelago.
Bali’s Hindu community believe that existence is a continuous cycle of birth, life and death. Therefore, elaborate rituals are performed at various stages of life to help one navigate this process. These rites of passage commence when a newborn baby is just 42 days old as each child is thought to embody the soul of a reincarnated ancestor.
