The Food Network champion and Author of “The Modern Tiffin” was recently at W Maldives for a Marriott Bonvoy Moments experience that involved a visit to the nearby local farms at Thoddoo island. There, she hand-picked ingredients and built the dishes in her menu around these available sustainably sourced fruits and vegetables. Chef Priyanka also worked closely with Maldivian Chefs at the resort while preparing the menu, including Chef Baka and Chef Rishma. As part of the 4-day activation, Chef Priyanka Naik held a sustainable cooking class for guests at the resort, giving them tips and tricks on how to make the best use of leftovers. The highlight of the collaboration was the unveiling of the year-long Go W-egan Menu with a special showcase dinner.
