WITH Ken James

Experience a 10 days trip of food and culture at Australia's most popular holiday destination with TV celebrity chef Ken James.

Household name Ken James has yet another string to his bow. He is leading a small group of connoisseurs on a 10 days trip of food and culture indulgence.

  • Stay at the new Villa Jodie in Seminyak, where Peace, Luxury and Tranquility are in abundance. Villa Jodie is a small, boutique, luxurious villa accommodation, comes complete with your own private pool and staff to pamper you.
  • This is an exclusive, intimate culinary and culture tour with a maximum of 14 participants where you will meet the real Balinese people. In addition you will experience the culture, dine and participate in cooking with celebrity chef Ken James and two other well known Chefs and Restaurateurs.
  • The idea came from a recent visit to Bali staying at Villa Jodie in Seminyak with Dr. David and his wife Clair Marsh who both received OAM's for their work in the aftermath of the Bali bombing. The Marsh's have built a luxurious small resort, named in honour of their friend Jodie Cearns who was one of the victims of the bombing.
