Embark on a culinary discovery of Bali, where the wild and inventive gourmet imaginings of French-American chef-visionary Chris Salans have taken root. Using modern French techniques of cooking and presentation, the classically-trained Salans incorporates both everyday and exotic Indonesian and Balinese ingredients in his cooking. The resulting flavours are sometimes surprising, but more often subtly nuanced, with unusual taste profiles that will titillate the most jaded of palates. Chef Salans calls his culinary oeuvre – borne out of years of research, and trial and error – French-Balinese gastronomy.

    Mozaic: French Cuisine, Balinese Flavours combines the fresh, exciting fl avours of Bali with the classic cooking techniques of the West to produce a cuisine that is renowned not only in its home in Bali, Indonesia, but throughout the culinary world. The story of Chef Chris Salans and his award-winning Mozaic restaurant is told through a collection of recipes that not only tantalise the palate, but show readers what can be achieved when quality ingredients are combined with spontaneity and imagination. The recipes are organised around 17 ingredients found in Bali and elsewhere in Indonesia, all of which are keys to the inspiration behind the sublime dishes at Mozaic. Each key ingredient in the recipe section is introduced with information on its origin, character and use in local cuisine, followed by notes from Chef Salans and tips on their selection and handling, and suggestions for sourcing and substitutes, if any.

    Born to a French mother and American father, Chef Salans recognised his calling as a chef at a young age. Eschewing a career as a doctor for training at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, he has worked for luminaries such as David Bouley and Thomas Keller. In 1996, Chef Salans helmed the restaurant at The Legian in Bali, where he began a real love affair with the bright fl avours and unique tastes of Balinese food and ingredients. His ability to apply classic French skills and techniques to the produce of Bali has won him legions of fans from all over the world.

    For over 15 years, Bali has been my home, my host and my inspiration. Over those years, I have

    admired this beautiful island and she, in turn, has provided me with a bounty of amazing ingredients

    that have allowed me to create Mozaic and its signature tastes. Like many of you, I have longed for this

    cookbook for some time and it fi nally gives me great pleasure to be able to share my experiences and

    my passion for Bali as a chef, restaurateur and resident. Bali is undeniably famous for its rich culture,

    generous people, and stunning beaches and surf. While these attractions have helped make her what

    she is to so many people today, I hope to do my part in helping put Bali and the Indonesian terroir on

    the culinary world map.

    I wanted to share what Bali has given me in terms of ingredients and rich culinary culture, as it has

    helped me fi nd my footing in the culinary world. Browsing the traditional markets, having family, friends

    and suppliers introduce me to unexpected tastes and fl avours it is through these daily discoveries

    that I have been able to create magic at Mozaic. Embarking on this project, though, I had no idea of the

    work, time and commitment involved in translating my embryonic ideas into what was to become this

    cookbook you now hold in your hands.
