The man responsible for the delicious cuisine served at Kayumanis Ubud is Chef Made Armawa. Always ready with a warm smile and a cheeky joke, this culinary professional grew up watching his mother cook Balinese food in his hometown of Negara. Starting his career as a teenager, Chef Made worked his way up through the kitchen hierarchy to land a position of prestige with a five stars Resort in Bali. He has been with Kayumanis Group for several years now and is keen to put Balinese food on the world’s culinary map.
Chef Made is passionate about the whole process that goes into creating new dishes. He is meticulous about using seasonal products, maintaining consistency and providing ongoing training for his team. Chef Made makes a point to regularly come out of the kitchen to interact with guests and ask for feedback. One of the biggest challenges that he faces these days is cooking for guests with food allergies and special dietary requests. Most Indonesian ingredients contain gluten, so he has come up with a tasty home-made noodle that goes into his own version of mie goreng.
