The Team

Anak Agung Kristya Yudha

Jala Cooking Academy Head Chef

A Balinese native who has been preparing delicious meals for Four Seasons guests for over 20 years, Chef Kris enjoys sharing his knowledge of Indonesian cuisine and culture. He conducts tours of Jimbaran Fish Market to show guests how locals shop for fresh produce and to provide insights into the traditions of our seaside village. Chef Kris will also help you pick indigenous ingredients from the academy’s herb and spice garden before you get down to business in the state-of-the-art kitchen.

"I love taking guests to see the Fish Market, which is still the island's main source of fresh seafood for locals. It is a lively window into the fishing heritage of Jimbaran village."
