For over two decades, Mozaic has been a pioneer of fine dining in Bali, helping to establish the island as a leading Asian culinary destination. It holds the distinction of being the only restaurant in Indonesia that is a member of Les Grandes Tables du Monde (Best Restaurant of the World), an association exclusively composed of 2 and 3 Michelin-starred restaurants.
Chef Willmer began his culinary journey in Venezuela, gaining experience at Michelin-starred restaurants and working alongside culinary luminaries such as Andrés Madrigal and Pierre Gagnier. His dedication, passion, and creativity eventually led him to Shanghai, China, in 2013, where he managed culinary teams for eight properties across Greater China and developed creative culinary concepts for prestigious dining establishments. Three of his concepts earned The Michelin Plate & Black Pearl awards. In September 2022, he made Jakarta his home, becoming the Executive Chef of the luxurious The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta, Pacific Place.
Chef Blake’s culinary journey began at the age of eleven, starting with volunteering, culinary contests, and working in renowned Chicago restaurants, including Charlie Trotter’s. He later became the Head Chef at Mozaic in Bali for eight years. In 2017, he joined OHA Group Shanghai, leading award-winning restaurants in Shanghai. Currently, he’s reshaping the Mozaic experience with a focus on Indonesian ingredients, challenging traditional norms, and taking pride in his unique culinary style.
This culinary collaboration promises to be an extraordinary fusion of talent and innovation that celebrates sustainable dining without compromising on taste or experience. The Restaurant looks forward to welcoming Guests to this extraordinary event on October 20, 2023, at 6 PM on Level 6 of The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta, Pacific Place.
