January 2022 — The Chris Salans group is excited to announce a very special single night event at Mozaic restaurant in Ubud on Saturday, January 22nd 2022, where French Winter Black Truffles will take center stage at a 5-course or 7-course dinner presented with optional premium wine pairings.
The French Winter Black Truffle, Tuber Melanosporum – is a rare uncultivated fungus that can only be harvested from the wild. The extreme difficulty involved in finding truffles and their delightful forestière-taste that is at once musky, earthy, and possessing a singularly aromatic flavor – make these much-prized forest fungi one of the most expensive and luxurious ingredients in French gastronomy.
The truffles featured at The Mozaic Restaurant in Ubud, Bali, for dinner on the 22 January were meticulously hand-selected by Chef Chris Salans at the truffle mart of Michelin Star Chef Jacques Pourcel in Montpellier in Southern France. Personally hand-carried to Bali, Chris commented on his prize cache: “The truffles I brought back are from one of the best areas in France, and their aroma is unique and very special. I am excited to share these during the coming special dinner at Mozaic Restaurant.”
To showcase these Montpellier truffles on 22 January 2022, Chef Chris Salans will prepare two set menus: a 5-course set menu and a 7-course set menu. There will also be special menus available for vegetarians and vegans.
