The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort is set to host ‘Stories of the Sea,’ a unique culinary experience with guest chef Shahfi Yusoff. 

For two nights only, Chef Shahfi Yusoff from the award-winning Kayuputi restaurant at The St. Regis Langkawi will visit the resort to serve guests with his special, curated signature menu that showcases an Asian-inspired haute cuisine with a local, exotic touch. 

Under the theme ‘Stories of the Sea’, the menu encapsulates a mix of Malaysian and international flavours, combined with modern French cooking techniques in a seafood-oriented menu that boasts locally sourced ingredients from the Maldivian sea. 

“My cooking philosophy is simple. I believe that the key to delivering the finest epicurean adventures is through the freshness of ingredients combined with modest cooking techniques to bring out their natural flavours,” said Chef Shahfi Yusoff. 

“Inspired by Kayuputi’s eccentric ocean dream design concept by world-renowned Bill Bensley, Chef Shahfi has designed the menu to delight diners with his culinary prowess,” the resort said.

According to the resort, Chef Shahfi will be supported by a team of talented chefs at The St. Regis Maldives, each a master in their own individual culinary fields. 

“Together, they bring you a remarkable culinary experience featuring signature dishes such as the red snapper asam pedas risotto, Alaskan crab umeboshi granita, truffle ice cream with Oscietra caviar, and Langkawi black bee honey.”

“At the St. Regis Maldives, we make the everyday exquisite and welcome guests into our home to experience the extraordinary in an unparalleled setting,” said Vincent Pauchon, General Manager of The St. Regis Maldives. 

“We are thrilled to introduce the latest culinary concept from the Kayuputi restaurant at St. Regis Langkawi. The esteemed chef, Shahfi Yusoff, will be present to personally deliver this concept. It’s a pleasure to combine the very best of our bespoke programs from some of St. Regis’ finest destinations, in the Maldives, and continue to offer luxurious experiences to our guests.”

The ‘Stories of the Sea’ experience will be available for guests at the underground wine cellar Decanter on 12 October, and at The Whale Bar on 15 October. Both events are by booking only.
