Wayan Kresnayasa

  • Growing up by the sea and the oldest son of nine siblings, Chef Wayan spent his adolescent years fishing, seaweed farming, caring for livestock and helping his mother cook for the family. His love for cooking transcended into the professional realm when he and his American wife opened a highly rated bed and breakfast in Ubud, with Wayan's food a constant mention in the guests' comments. In 2010 he moved to the USA to pursue professional training in restaurant hospitality. In the USA, he worked at a Michelin-starred restaurant and the #11 premier farm-to-table restaurant in the world, and led the main stage at StarChefs International Chefs Congress. He now continues to put the archipelago's remarkable gastronomy on the global map as the Executive Chef of Potato Head's sustainable seafood restaurant, Ijen.
