It marked Marriott International’s first ever Indonesia Culinary Journey – Flavors of the Archipelago.

“Being the largest archipelago in the world and home of a vast array of unique and vibrant cuisine, many family secret recipes are introduced to guests by these Chefs. The dishes are featured during the roadshow from each hotel as it represents unique recipes of their family as well as their region,” said Marie Browne, Marriott International Area Director of Operations for Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and South Korea.

Inspired by the true concept of a classic seven course, each hotel prepared one course of this grand menu to represent their hotel during the promotion. At the preliminary stage,  internal competitions were held at each hotel in search of the most authentic and unique Indonesian dish. The seven chefs along with the winning dishes then join the culinary journey to represent their hotels across Indonesia.
