Dine with Michelin-starred chef Johannes King at Niyama Private Islands
Niyama Private Islands Maldives has announced that renowned German chef Johannes King will be hosting two exclusive five-course dinners at the luxury property. Owner of the Michelin-starred Söl’ring Hof, Chef Johannes will serve modern European cuisine paired with a selection of wines in a stunning setting 500m out in the middle of the Indian Ocean, according to Niyama Private Islands.
Chef Johannes began his career at the prestigious Franz Keller restaurant in Cologne specialising in French nouvelle cuisine. He then trained under master pastry chef Karl Schumacher at Vienna’s Konditorei Oberlaa, perfecting the traditional desserts for which the café is renowned. Chef Johannes relocated to Berlin to work at Henri Levy’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Maître, then joined the culinary team at the InterContinental in the upscale Tiergarten area.
Chef Johannes found his passion for fresh, seasonal, locally sourced dishes at Hôtel de la Poste on the Côte D’Or, known for its regional Burgundian cuisine. His experience there inspired him to open his own destination restaurant in 2000. Söl’ring Hof on the island of Sylt commands two Michelin stars and 17 Gault Millau points. Gourmands from far and wide have made the pilgrimage to the island to taste Chef Johannes’ modern textures and light flavours in a surreal landscape.
For two evenings only, on January 29 and February 2, Chef Johannes will bring the cuisine of Söl’ring Hof to Niyama’s Edge. Edge is a modern, fine dining paradise accessible only by speedboat. Set out over the lagoon tinged with the hues of sunset, Edge offers wrap-around seating under a billowing white canopy and sits above the Maldives’ only underwater playground, SubSix.
Across Niyama’s two islands, Play and Chill, guests are treated to one-of-a-kind epicurean adventures, from Asian avant-garde cuisine in the treetops to South American barbeque deep in the jungle. To learn more about Niyama Private Islands Maldives and its offers, please visit niyama.com.
