Miles Belfield is regarded as one of the most exciting additions to the Bali culinary scene. Originally from Bahamas and raised in the UK, Miles brings with him many years of experience in top-level gastronomy.
He has worked in several prestigious, Michelin star and award-winning restaurants, broadening his skills alongside the foremost chefs in the business. Anantara, Karma Kandara, bisma eight in Bali, Bordeaux Quay in Bristol, Edilino Italian Restaurant in London and the Quartier Vert in Bristol are just a few of them. He also worked two years in the Caribbean at two five star resorts.
Miles’ approach to cooking is ingredient-driven and sustainability and eco-friendliness rank high on his list of priorities. As for his influences, they are as eclectic and sophisticated as his cooking. “As a young chef learning my trade in London I was very inspired by Marco Pierre White who I still feel is the Godfather of modern cooking In England,” he explains. “As I have matured, I have become more of a purist – I love Elizabeth David, whose cooking style and menu creation are a kind of culinary storytelling.”
