Soneva Fushi and Soneva Gili by Six Senses have long been pioneers in their celebration of Slow Life and Slow Life Cooking. Both Maldivian resorts along with their new sister, Soneva Kiri in Thailand, have organic gardens, world class chefs and take enormous pride in offering the freshest of ingredients, sourced locally and cooked to perfection. This year Soneva by Six Senses is launching The Slow Life Cooking ‘Thairi’. Starting with renowned chef, Atul Kochhar – the first Indian chef to be awarded a Michelin star – named chefs from some of the most famous restaurants in the world have been invited to the resorts, to cook for guests but also to judge the existing standard of cuisine on offer. At the end of their stay, the chefs will be invited to award a ‘thairi’, the Maldivian word for star, and an independent panel will be notified with the result. A ‘thairi’ may not be forthcoming, there may be more than one, but the ‘thairi’s’ will be awarded following strict guidelines, with a rating system designed by a jury of independent chefs. To ensure complete objectivity and element of surprise, Soneva Repeater guests will also secretly be invited to cast their vote. The results will be announced bi-annually.
