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.

Fivelements Sakti Dining Room™ awarded Global Winner for Gourmet Vegan Cuisine by World Luxury Restaurant AwardsWritten by Fivelements team
We are thrilled and honoured to share this most recent recognition as
the Global Winner for Gourmet Vegan Cuisine from the World Luxury Restaurants Awards.
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.
“The most important things in life are togetherness and friendship, whether among family members, friends and acquaintances, work colleagues or with the welcoming of strangers,” says Chicco.
He was speaking after an enlightening discussion on karma, compassion, tolerance and the path to peace, which were the key messages this year from Fivelements. The takeaway messages were gratifyingly fundamental, achievable and universal.
“Sharing experiences and having fun together create unforgettable moments, moments of love and connection,” he added. “Life is about these moments. It is about feeling good, about savouring that feeling and expressing it too.”
