Rumari at Raffles Bali Presents Epicurean Journey Chapter Two

FoodieS Team
28 June 2022


The most prominent culinary event on the Island of the Gods continues with the presence of one of Thailand’s most talented chefs.


Epicurean Journey Chapter One, held last April, was indeed a blast. The event celebrated the richness of local sustainable produce and was praised by patrons,
including Indonesia’s Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy, Sandiaga Uno. Following the tremendous success of the first chapter, Epicurean Journey returns this July with an equally exciting guest chef. Epicurean Journey Chapter Two will see Rumari’s culinary director Gaetan Biesuz collaborate with the talented chef Pichaya Utharntharm, widely known as Chef Pam from Restaurant Potong, an award-winning progressive Thai- Chinese restaurant in Bangkok.

Thai by birth, Thai-Australian Chef Pam is not a stranger to Thai’s culinary scene, a celebrity chef appeared as host and judge on twelve seasons of Top Chef Master as one of the four culinary experts from the judging panel. During her early career as a chef, Pam worked for several five-star hotels in Thailand before continuing her education at The Culinary Institute of America. Graduated with high honor and awarded first in management and culinary, Chef Pam began working at Jean Georges Restaurant, which has consistently been awarded four stars by the New York Times and three Michelin stars. 

Jean Georges presents exquisitely crafted dishes blending French, American, and Asian influences. After several years of training and working with executive chef Mark Lapico at Jean Georges Restaurant, Chef Pam has honed her fine culinary skills and exceptionally high standards.

Chef Pam’s outstanding skill will be fused with Chef Gaetan’s passion for exploration and discovery. Chef Gaetan has successfully led Rumari to be one of the finest Indonesian restaurants on the island and the first ever restaurant in Indonesia—one among the selected few exclusive venues globally—to be appointed as Krug Ambassade.

Epicurean Journey Chapter Two will be held on 15 and 16 July 2022 at Rumari at Raffles Bali, perched on the highest point of Bali’s most luxurious resort. The dinner is available at Rp 3,350,000++ per person.
