1928 Restaurant presents Chef Take Over Series featuring four well-known chefs.


Starting this month, 1928 Restaurant at The Hermitage, a Tribute Porfolio Hotel, Jakarta presents Chef Take Over Series. In line with The Hermitage Jakarta’s theme of “Reviving The Heritage: Reminiscing The Past, Embracing The Future,” the Chef Take Over Series will highlight on the richness of Indonesian cuisine as well as celebrate the colonial history of its building.

The monthly series will welcome Bali based award-winning Chef Maxie Millian from Apéritif Restaurant & Bar, Ubud (13 & 14 May); UK-based Indonesian food champion, Petty Elliott (10 & 11 June); owner and chef of Yogyakarta’s most celebrated restaurant Mil’s Kitchen, Mili Hendratno (22 & 23 July); and then followed by award-winning Balinese chef, Wayan Kresna Yasa in August. The 1928 Restaurant’s Chef Take Over Series takes center stage and showcases these chefs and their own family recipes as a homage to the property’s heritage building concept.

 Kicking off the series, Chef Maxie Millian of Apéritif Restaurant & Bar, Ubud will be showing his talent and his family recipes on 13 & 14 May 2022. Guests will discover a seven-course tasting menu based on his treasured family recipes passed down through generations. Some of the dishes he will present include Octopus Woku, inspired by a Woku recipe that has been around for three generations in his father’s family origin in Manado. There also will be Beef Gulai, a dish that he learned to make from a secret recipe that he got from his mother-in-law that was originally from North Sumatra.

Born in Jakarta, Chef Maxie Millian is a well-known personality in the culinary industry. Prior to settling in Bali, Chef Maxie moved to Dubai to pursue his career and has since won multiple awards, including a gold medal at Le Salon Culinaire International De Londres in 2012. Chef Maxie has a knack for turning traditional Indonesian dishes into beautiful showstoppers that will wow any diner.
