This Eid al Fitr, we at Soneva will welcome acclaimed Dubai-based chef Hattem Mattar to the glittering roster of visiting chefs in the Maldives as part of our Soneva Stars programme. Chef Hattem Mattar, the iconic ‘pit-master’ from the UAE who has made waves in the Middle Eastern dining scene, will showcase his unique style of ‘live fire-cooking’ at Soneva Fushi in the Baa Atoll and at Soneva Jani in the Noonu Atoll from April 20 to 30.
Mattar’s residency at Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani will place a unique island twist on some of his signature dishes including Raw Flounder with garden greens and fingerlime ponzu, Coral Trout Kofta with grape salad, burnt eggplant and fresh pita, and Charcoal Scallop Skewer with hokkaido scallop, citrus herb glaze, red onion and basil. The eclectic menus will incorporate local ingredients picked from the resort’s organic gardens and will emphasise Mattar’s signature open-fire style with an elevated twist to inspire discerning palates. Over the course of his residency, Mattar will host exclusive dinners with bespoke menus, masterfully curated with our culinary teams.
