“MÉTIS Bali Names Dove Sudarsana as the New Executive Chef”
The highly acclaimed French-Mediterranean fine dining establishment, MÉTIS Restaurant, Lounge and Gallery in Seminyak, Bali, gains new momentum naming Dove Sudarsana as the new Executive Chef. No stranger to the MÉTIS team, Chef Dove has been contributing his skills for MÉTIS since its opening back in 2009 and will be overseeing all of the culinary aspects including the restaurant, the lounge, the garden, the in-room private dining that caters up to 100 guests and the wine cellar that offers an intimate degustation dinner with premium wine pairing.
“We are extremely pleased that Chef Dove has agreed to lead our culinary team,” said Said Alem, the Managing Director. “He really embodies the high-end quality we provide for our guests while bringing his character to every single dish that he creates. We’re excited to showcase his talents to our colleagues and international clientele at large.”
Born and raised in Bangli, North Bali, Chef Dove developed his passion for food and cooking at a young age where he found himself enjoying being involved in the kitchen, helping his mom preparing food. He then took a decision to begin his culinary career in 1996 to further pursue his passion.
“The dishes I created are the combination of my creativity and the classic cooking which is the authenticity of MÉTIS. Curiosity and passion will always lead me to something new, fresh and original.” Chef Dove stated. "I'm looking forward to the next chapter of my culinary journey," he added.
With his long history with MÉTIS, Chef Dove is believed to bring not only his passion and creativity to the kitchen, but also a wealth of prior training in French cuisines to MÉTIS’ already stellar food and beverage menu.
