Cooking with a Michelin starred Chef

Lobster Carpaccio
Today I just wanted to tell you a bit about our latest event we did with a Michelin starred Chef. His name is Igor Macchia and he traveled all the way from Italy to us in Maldives to cook with us and produce 2 amazing dinners. Igor usually works in "La Credenza" a lovely Gourmet Restaurant close to Torino in north Italy
The Canapes
We have cooked together a couple of years ago and I am really happy to have Igor over again, this time in a different hotel, and show us the art of Italian Fine Dining
Chef Igor and me
Busy Plating
As the hotel is pretty full, it is not always easy for the chefs to make time and come over to Naladhu, the private island, and cook with the master chef. That is why most of the chefs actually took a day off so they have time and invest it to learn something new
Caesar Salad
We started off with a cocktail at the beach for around 60 guests. An absolutely amazing event as we had. We finished off the canapes in a make shift kitchen at the beach, the chef went around to meet the guests and everyone had a great time having some stunning food and watching the sunset. Of course the dinner was sold out within no time and we had 2 evenings with 32 guests each time....booked to capacity.
Lobster Carpaccio
The dinners were great too, the setup was outside, next to the beach under the stars....could not be any better. Igor and the chefs all busy in the kitchen we sent out course by course, accompanied by wonderful Italian wines.....yes, each wine was sent to the kitchen as well for a taster...much appreciated
Wasabi Risotto
Wagyu, Foie Gras and Cherries
I have a whole load of photos, so you can see the food a bit and I will try to post some of the recipes soon, they are absolutely easy to do, especially if one thinks that this is Michelin star level cooking
Pre Dessert
Chocolate Mousse and Spice Cake
So next will be a nice wine dinner with wines from Antinori and then there are another 3 Michelin starred chefs on the program in the next three month....something really exciting...and lots to write about.
