In ‘Chasing Ice,’ we follow Balog across the Arctic as he deploys revolutionary time-lapse cameras designed to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.

Charity Dinner by Four Leading Chefs – 11 January

W Bali Seminyak is the venue for a historic collaboration between W Bali Seminyak, Scholars of Sustenance International (SOS), and Bali Celebrity Chef Chris Salans. This 4-course charity dinner with carefully selected paired wines will showcase the talents of four exceptional chefs while, at the same time, significantly contribute to relieving hunger in remote areas of Bali. Scholars of Sustenance is a food rescue foundation that collects surplus food from around Bali from hotels, such as W Bali, suppliers, bakeries and other commercial outlets that are then sent to feed fourteen orphanages, four foundations and five villages in remote and largely impoverished areas of Bali. Bali Celebrity Master Chef Chris Salans is joined by Michelin Star Restaurant Chef Jacques Pourcel, Dutch Master Chef Alain Caron and Chef Beryl Adler – W Bali’s Director of Culinary – all joining forces in a not-to-be-missed culinary event. This superb culinary team will prepare a four-course dinner that will raise money for the SOS Ban Basics Program. Proceeds from the event will go towards generating relief for those unable to provide for themselves, ranging from food availability to basic nutritional needs. Accordingly, the chefs participating in this special evening have committed to making the dinner a “Zero-Waste event” where no food is wasted in the final preparation. Seating is strictly limited and advance bookings are essential.

When           : Saturday 11 January with pre-dinner cocktails at 6:00 pm

Where         : The Great Room of W Bali – Seminyak

Tickets        : IDR 1,750,000/pp incl pre-dinner drinks, canapés, dinner w/ paired wines, entertainment, and the chance to win attractive door prizes.
