A Food Adventure has started

I’m in collaboration with Soneva Fushi. Building the vegan restaurant Shades of Green in their organic vegetable garden. We want to tap into the global movement that places an emphasis on fresh, organic, and local produce as being important for a healthy lifestyle, while also being a climate-conscious choice in keeping with Soneva’s values.

  • Vegan organic plant-based
  • Nordic cooking techniques
  • Cultivating Umami
  • Vegan kitchen

A vibrant plant-based food experience celebrating the Maldivian home grown organic produce of Soneva Fushi, and the flavors of Southeast Asia utilizing Nordic cooking techniques to intensify flavors and cultivate Green Umami. 

Shades of Green Menu

The menu celebrates the garden and the season revolving around colours (red, green, yellow), green umami (the fifth basic taste) or around one vegetable prepared in multiple ways. Exploring ingredients though the colours.

  • Yellow – Turmeric, Yuzu, Pineapple.
  • Red – Beetroot, Pomegranate, Chili
  • Green – Spirulina, Pandana, Morning Glory

Each menu has six courses with dishes falling under cleansing, crispy, raw, grain, fire and sweet. There will also be a cold press of the day, flavoured lemonade, fragranced iced tea, and cocktails. Examples of menu items include aloe vera nam jim, red quinoa porridge, and screw pine fruit lemonade.

The barefoot luxury resort of choice for celebrities including Madonna, Paul McCartney and the Beckhams, it’s no surprise that Soneva Fushi’s dining options are among the very best in the Maldives.

Choices on this private island include sushi restaurant So Hands On, an eight-seat private dining space developed in a partnership with three Michelin-starred Japanese chef Kenji Gyoten.

And then there’s Shades of Green. As the name suggests, the focus is on plant-based cuisine and diners begin their tasting menu by chef Carsten Kyster with a tour of Soneva Fushi’s extensive gardens, where snacks are hidden amongst the foliage.

The bounty of produce surrounding diners is then crafted into five impressive gourmet courses. CNN Travel
