Soneva Gilli Hosts Famous Chef Paul Gayler
Maldives Promotion House – Soneva Gilli by Six Senses has reported that they will be hosting famous Chef Paul Gayler, this season. Chef Paul will be cooking his signature menu for up to 30 Soneva Gili guests on the 26th September. He will also be teaching them how to make their favourite dish on the 27th and on the 28th he will finish with a Talkers Table dinner with guests where he’ll talk about his culinary journey.
In 1982 Chef Paul left the Dorchester in London and took up the position of head chef at one of London’s most famous restaurants ‘Inigo Jones’ where he gained an enviable reputation as a pioneer for haute ‘Vegetarian Cuisine’.
Frustrated by the lack of interest and imagination shown by many chefs in the preparation of vegetable and vegetarian dishes, he introduced ‘Menu Potager’, a seven course gourmet inspired vegetarian menu.
To this day Paul remains the leader of imaginative vegetarian food in the world. In 1991, Paul was invited to head up the team of the newly opened Lanesborough on Hyde Park, in the heart of London. Over the years the hotel has become a member of the prestigious St. Regis group and has become in a short space of time one of the most exclusive and sort after hotels in the world.
Paul remains to this day the culinary genius, overseeing all food preparation in the hotel with a brigade of 40 chefs all dedicated to producing great food.
Although Paul himself does not like his food to be labelled, he would probably describe his cuisine as ‘Global Contemporary’; a careful blending of flavours, whilst retaining classical disciplines learnt over many years. He believes there are only two real cooking styles – bad cooking, and good cooking.
