I Putu Dodik Sumarjana was trained at Alila Ubud, where his mother was pastry chef. Chef Putu was also part of the original Locavore team when the restaurant opened three years ago. His passion and dedication for Indonesian cuisine made him a natural choice for the new kitchen. He’s proud to show guests what can be achieved using local ingredients and has a deep interest in Balinese food. He regularly creates new dishes which are sampled by the multi-cultural Indonesian team, and together they fine-tune the elements before each item appears on the menu.
