Barley, Porcini & Asparagus Risotto
Wholesome and earthy, this is a new take on a comforting mushroom risotto
This tasty dish uses pearl barley rather than rice to create the foundation of a ‘risotto’. Barley has long been renowned as a strengthening grain eaten by athletes in ancient Greek and Roman times. A rich source of magnesium, B vitamin Niacin, maltose and dietary fiber, eating barley helps balance insulin levels, protect against cardiovascular risk, lower cholesterol, maintain a healthy colon and fuel liver and muscle cells.

Looking back five and a half years ago when we opened the gate to Fivelements, we had hoped our guests would respond well to our integrative holistic wellness concept. Incorporating traditional Balinese healing and wellness, plant-based living foods cuisine, sacred arts and sustainable design, the innovate healing concepts such as Sakti Dining Room™ are inspired by and born in Bali and are entirely representative of this idea.
Through years of discovery, research, healing, illness and experiencing the extraordinary healing impact of eating plant-based foods firsthand, we cultivated a vision for Fivelements’ cuisine: creating an artisanal gastronomic journey with natural, organic, wild-harvested and locally-sourced ingredients from Bali and nearby. We wanted people to experience eating well, eating for energy, beauty and longevity and most importantly, enjoying a beautiful meal prepared with Love.
8 – A beautiful way to get a glimpse of the magic that is Fivelements is to choose one of our Romantic Day Experiences, like the Signs of Love. Experience the profoundly relaxing ambiance of our spa villa, open to the sacred river, while we pamper you with a Signature Couples Ritual. Choose between Chocolate Love (imagine a chocolate and almond scrub, body mask and massage) or Hibiscus Prema (a divine body massage with our signature patchouli and rose essence, followed by a hibiscus flower bath). Mixing nature and nurture, you’ll leave physically, mentally and emotionally uplifted.
If you’re a foodie, there’s nothing quite like being witness to a talented chef’s imagination, beautifully presented on a plate, for the first time ever. To give feedback and perhaps have some sway upon whether it appears on the regular menu brings you closer to the experience of being a chef. Minus the stress, sweat and tears, it’s the next best thing.
