JOALI BEING has hosted an immersive culinary workshop for students of Maduvvaree school with visiting Chef Patrick Godborg. Some 12 students from the 8th and 9th grades interested in the culinary sector participated to learn about sustainable and organic cooking concepts.
The resort also hosted a workshop to commemorate World Sleep Day with Chef Godborg and Executive Chef Richard Siahaan.
In addition to two workshops, Chef Godborg also hosted a unique dining experience for the resort’s guests. The five-course signature menu featured tastes of Scandinavia such as Nordic-style sustainable fish with pumpkin and traditional Danish cream puffs infused with local ingredients that promote good sleep.
Chef Godborg is the Head Chef of the acclaimed Restaurant Radio in Copenhagen. He found his passion for cooking at a young age. He found that he loved being creative in the kitchen and giving people a good experience. As a culinary student, he worked at several Michelin-starred restaurants, such as the world-renowned Nova.
