Meet Our Chef

Chef Iwan Sutrisno’s love affair for cooking began in his childhood home’s kitchen in Denpasar. “Back then, things were so simple, yet magical,” Chef Iwan said as he recalled the times his mother combined exotic spices to cook his favourite traditional dish, ‘pepes ikan’ or steamed fish wrapped in banana leaves. He was only seven years back then.

Combining his years of expertise and passion in cooking, Chef Iwan brings innovative ideas to The Kelusa by fusing fresh local ingredients with modern cooking techniques. The results are a decadent display of taste and texture which celebrate modern flavours and Indonesia’s culinary heritage.

Beautiful, delicious and soulful describe Chef Iwan’s culinary creations best.
