The collaboration between two couples, Askar & Scarlete with Alfred & Jeslin, led to the inception of a lifestyle concept store called Køkken+. It marks a new chapter of urban lifestyle exploration. Our first encounter was at a memorable afternoon soiree recently. Here’s the story.

KØKKEN+ STARTS with an idea to provide a medium for exchanging thoughts between one creative individual to another.  This blossoms into collective events such as walking tour around Tokyo and late afternoon soiree in secret places that would entice the young, creative people of today.

After a successful gathering last summer, this year Køkken+ invited us to a secret rendezvous in Bandung. We took an early trip from Jakarta and were heading up straight to the hilly northern part of Bandung. Arriving at the secret destination, we found ourselves warmly welcomed inside this beautiful house with a sizeable backyard overlooking the mesmerizing view of the city.

Køkken+ team took care plenty of details needed to make its afternoon soiree highly memorable. On the wonderful venue, a long table was set for people to gather over food and drinks for the whole afternoon and evening.

From the kitchen, the chefs Ivan Wibowo from Benedict and Grace Dharmawan have prepared an Indonesian-inspired lineup from the canapés until the desserts. Jumping start the event, Grace first taught the guests to create their own Vietnamese spring roll and everyone was already enthusiastic from the beginning.

After a series of introductions, the meal started and everybody was enjoying their time conversing to one another over Chef Ivan’s prawn cocktails, charred red-spiced chicken, kaffir lime rice, and soy braised beef balls. Each guest came from very different backgrounds but the curiosity to learn more from one another made the day even livelier.

The early evening came and desserts were served. From the traditional jajanan pasar to roasted rice ice cream and choco passion fruit ball, it felt as if we’re going far into the night to savor the rest of the day together. However, the time came for us to head back to Jakarta and we’re all hoping to connect again sometime in the future, not too far away. Thank you Køkken+ for being  such a wonderful host!
