Epicurean journey: Chef Kirk Westaway brings double Michelin-starred cuisine to The Nautilus Maldives
From the bustling metropolis of Singapore to the tranquil shores of the Maldives, this May, The Nautilus invites its guests to savour an extravagant dinner with two-star Michelin Chef Kirk Westaway, paired with exquisite old world wines at Zeytoun, the overwater signature restaurant at The Nautilus.
Chef Kirk Westaway is recognised globally for his mastery in reinventing gastronomic classics that are as easily received as they are comforting and refined. Born in Southwest Britain, Chef Kirk, Executive Chef of the two Michelin star restaurant, JAAN by Kirk Westaway in Singapore, is known for his deeply rooted passion for natural flavours that are reminiscent of his childhood in England and his philosophy to showcase British dining in a modern, refreshing light, therefore ’Reinventing British’.
The exquisite, limited dining experience taking place on May 18th and 19th, features an exclusive meal comprised of some of Chef Kirk’s signature dishes, including Fish and Chips, Goose Mouse Black Truffle, Beetroot Meringue or The Ultimate Tomato, Buffalo Milk Burrata cheese, Green Basil Sorbet or Roasted Langoustine, BBQ Sweetheart Cabbage, Kristal Caviar and Wagyu Beef Sirloin, and Mushroom Marmalade.
“Through my personal journey with food, from harvesting organic fruits and vegetables in my family’s backyard as a child to becoming Executive Chef at JAAN in 2015, I am now led by two culinary philosophies,” says Chef Kirk.
“The first is to always uphold the integrity of the produce and translate the best of each ingredient onto the plate. The second is that food should be comforting and form emotional connections. It is my mission to present guests with an unforgettable meal that evokes nostalgia through familiar yet elegant flavours of the finest seasonal produce the world has to offer. I have always been attracted to the sea and am looking forward to the tropical and natural ingredients I can use in the Maldives to refine my creations to take the Nautilus’s guests on a refreshing and comforting culinary journey.”
The extravagant gastronomic experience with the Krug Ambassador Chef Kirk Westaway will be further enhanced with a special selection of various types of Krug Champagne.
The Nautilus General Manager, Andre Miethig, says: “Chef Kirk Westaway will enable our guests to join in a unforgettable gastronomic journey with his expertly crafted and comforting dining experience. We are thrilled to have our guests join Chef Kirk for two evenings of adventurous flavours and gourmet art under the Maldivian starry sky that is not to be missed.”
