Jane Alty

A talented chef and restaurateur from New Zealand, Jane Alty opened The Begging Bowl in London over ten years ago. Her focus on using genuine Thai ingredients and techniques, paired with carefully sourced wines and unique cocktails, allowed her to introduce a true taste of Thai cuisine to a curious and dedicated public. Jane’s passion for Asian food led her to become the Executive Chef for Thai restaurant group Chaiyo Restaurants, where she currently oversees a collection of ambitious restaurants, each focusing on a specific region in Thailand. In June 2023, she will be opening a Northern Thai restaurant at the iconic Battersea Power Station in London, adding to the Chaiyo Restaurants collection and giving more people the opportunity to taste the incredible flavours of Thailand. Despite her formal training, Jane attributes many of the invaluable secrets she has learned to her time spent with Thai relatives on the outskirts of Bangkok. She is committed to sharing her passion for Thai cuisine and cooking with the wider world and is continuously looking for ways to help people understand the complexities and subtleties of the food she has fallen in love with. Jane has created a successful training ground for many incredible chefs, earning her a spot in the top 100 influential women in hospitality.

Sylvestre Wahid

Born in the foothills of the Himalayas in north–western Pakistan, Chef Sylvestre Wahid is inspired by beautiful memories of his grandfather’s orchards, lined with mango, tamarind and guava trees, as well as his mother’s lentils cooked in yoghurt-based sauces, perfumed with cilantro and mint. Wahid’s culinary universe is the essence of French cuisine, using only the finest ingredients and centred on wellbeing, with no added fat, salt or sugar. At the start of his career, he was spotted by the celebrated chef Thierry Marx from the Mandarin Oriental, undertaking an apprenticeship alongside him, followed by another in the kitchens of the Cheval Blanc in Nîmes. He went on to work for Alain Solivérès, then crossed paths with Alain Ducasse, who took him under his wing at Le Plaza Athénée in Paris, before sending him to New York to support Didier Eléna. After becoming head chef at Oustau de Baumanière in Les Baux-de-Provence, he then led the kitchens at Strato in Courchevel – gaining two Michelin stars at both restaurants. In 2015, Wahid took over from Jean-François Piège at Brasserie Thoumieux in Paris, where he gained another two Michelin stars. After announcing his departure in December 2020, he flew to Courchevel to open an eponymous restaurant at the prestigious Hotel Les Grandes Alpes 1850. Sylvestre Wahid will be hosting a series of exclusive dinners at Soneva Kiri.
