Michelin Star Chef Rasmus Kofoed to Hold Exclusive Dinner Dates at Six Senses Laamu, Maldives

Rasmus_hr_Luxury Maldives resort Six Senses Laamu is delighted to welcome Michelin star chef Rasmus Kofoed for two exclusive dinners on 8 and 12 March 2014.

The signature dinners will take place in LEAF, a stunning restaurant perched on stilts above the resort’s organic garden.

It is from here that many of the fresh ingredients for the special dinners will be harvested along with produce from local fishermen and farmers.

Hailing from Denmark, Kofoed is both a chef and restaurateur who won the gold medal at the 2011 Bocuse d’Or. He had previously been awarded the bronze medal in 2005 and the silver medal in 2007 in the same competition.

Kofoed is the head chef and co-owner of Geranium, a restaurant in Copenhagen. Geranium has a lucid, light and dynamic kitchen, focusing on creating meals that involve all our senses – restoring, challenging and enriching.

The celebrity chef received his training at Hotel D’Angleterre on Kongens Nytorv in Copenhagen followed by tenure in the two-Michelin-star restaurant Scholteshof in Belgium.

On his return to Copenhagen, he served as head chef at several top restaurants before opening his first restaurant, Geranium, which was awarded a Michelin Star in 2012 and two Michelin stars in 2013.

Guests wishing to join these dinners should make reservations in advance, or on arrival at the resort through their butler. A maximum of 30 guests will be welcomed at each dinner. The events are priced at US$150++ per person.
