Poem in a glass: The concept provides a tasty and well presented dessert, in a glass, some photos are available on the facebook page. Feel free to consult and to like it ! :)
The project is based on a Franco-Indonesian collaboration to enable young Balinese to acquire a French expertise in the field of pastry, in wich they are not mastery at all and they can of course re-use elsewhere.

Over the seven seas :
Some benchmarks, go out the compass: Indonesia: 20 000 islands, archipelago situated between Thailand, Malaysia and Australia
Our market research, we found that the best place to open our Odyssey Delicious is Ubud, in the heart of Bali's cultural capital and nerve center of the island. In Ubud, you can visit the many art galleries, stroll in the forest of monkeys, admire the main Hindu temples of the island, marvel at the volcano, admire the rice terraces (including Jatiluwih, World Heritage of UNESCO).
Ubud is a must for every tourist wishing to visit Bali, for despite the passage of more than 9 million tourists each year, the place has best preserved its authenticity.
The little big adventure : In the vast majority of tourists that pass through Ubud are of Asian origins (Malaysia, China and Singapore are close), the Indonesian origins (the Indonesian government made a large promotion for domestic tourism) and origins Australian. Their eating habits are different, there is no real ritual at set times to eat, usually they eat when they are hungry several times a day, either sweet or savory. Nevertheless they have a very high image of French cooking and especially baking considered a luxury product.

In our fantastic journey, we will take a small part of France with us to illuminate our path, a part of you in our heart. The project ECO-RESPONSIBLE and relies on a commitment to respect the environment, the local economy and the people: - We will use solar energy to power the electricity restaurant. - 67% of the ingredients have originated from the farmers in the area. - Verrines takeaway recorded in glass (back against discount store), installation of collectors. - The damaged glasses will go on to glass recycling or local artists. - No use of plastic bags. - Indonesian cooks will be trained in markers of French pastry in a fair process. ==> Contractors YES, NO polluters! Finally, as the kitchen is primarily a sharing, prices will be affordable so that French pastry remains a pleasure for the eyes and palate first. Our goal is to offer a journey of the senses, hence the name we have chosen: Delicious Odyssey (OD for friends;))
