The first ever Ubud Food Festival is being held this year, putting the theory that food is the window into a culture into practice. Headed by the same folks behind the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival, the event will explore the diversity of Indonesian cuisine, filling the central Balinese town of Ubud with three days of panels and tastings led by restaurateurs and food specialists, farmers’ markets, and cooking demonstrations and master classes taught by some of the best chefs in the region (June 5–7; Ubud Food Festival). —Gabrielle Lipton
