Amilla Maldives Resort and Residence anticipates the arrival of vegan culinary wizards, Kirk and Keeley Haworth: The ultimate brother-sister duo and co-founders of prestigious plant-based restaurant, Plates London.
You can count on the siblings to offer Amilla’s guests the opportunity to dine on delicious vegan dinners at special gala events from the 11th of November to the 25th, they will also hold cooking master classes during their two-week residency at the five-star resort.
Amilla Maldives invited Kirk and Keeley to visit because their culinary and sustainability ethos aligns closely with theirs. The Baa Atoll resort is located on a private island, miles from any cities, but offers a wide range of contemporary international cuisine. It includes Amilla’s groundbreaking Wellness Your Way menus. These menus offer guests a comprehensive variety of wellness dishes at all of the resort’s restaurants, including vegan/vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free and keto/paleo/low-carb. Amilla Maldives also has extensive fruit and vegetable gardens, from which Kirk will gather the freshest of ingredients to enhance his creations.
Kirk leads the kitchen at Plates with unparalleled passion, inspired by his personal wellness journey in addition to 16 years of perfecting his craft in Michelin-starred restaurants around the world. After winning the North West Young Chef of the Year award at 17, Kirk went on to work under the world's top chefs at The French Laundry, Restaurant Sat Bains, The Square, The Quay and The Northcote.
Their team focuses on balance and well-being, without compromising on taste or creativity. Taking all that nature has to offer, he delivers modern, plant-based food with high-end execution only at Amilla Maldives Resort and Residencies.
