New ‘Low Miles’ menu

New ‘Low Miles’ menu

Azara and Samsara, two luxurious restaurants at Jumeirah Dhevanafushi and  in the Maldives, have unveiled a new ‘Low Miles’ menu as part of an on-going commitment to reduce the hotels’ carbon-footprints.

Intent on providing a culinary experience with a conscience, the special ‘Low Miles’ menu has been created by the chefs at Jumeirah Maldives out of a genuine concern for the impact restaurants can have on the environment.

Azara and Samsara are renowned for delighting diners with fresh flavours amidst stunning settings. Now, based on a concept of responsible luxury, the ‘Low Miles’ menu makes the most of local, fresh ingredients to preserve the idyllic surroundings as well as offer a delicious taste of traditional Maldivian cuisine. By utilising ingredients sourced nearby, the chefs are able to ensure minimal air and sea miles are required to bring the food to the resort, minimising the harmful greenhouse gas emissions released into the atmosphere.

The localised set menu offers a truly sustainable, and delicious, culinary experience, with dishes such as Reef Fish Pappillote with Vegetables, Coconut and Chili or Mild Yellow Fish Curry with Chapatti, Mango Chutney and Local Herb Salad. And, for dessert, you can indulge in a Maldivian Fruit Cocktail served with Biscuit and a Local Custard Cream or Fried Local Banana Fritters served with Island made Coconut Ice Cream. At Jumeirah Vittaveli you can also enjoy the menu as destination dining, choosing a private stretch of white sandy beach for a romantic meal or a celebration among friends.
