Across the Indian Ocean, culinary traditions and styles from the rich mix of cultures come together to create the fusion cuisine that this region is renowned for.
Our chefs at Constance Hotels and Resorts have taken this rich culinary heritage and combined it with classic French cooking techniques to create our own take on fusion cuisine. Using the freshest local ingredients from Mauritius, Maldives, Madagascar and Seychelles, the result is a mix of European and Asian styles.
The exacting standards we work to in the kitchens across our 7 hotels and resorts has caught the attention of many top foodies globally, and we frequently host special food and wine events with visiting chefs and sommeliers, to celebrate and share our passion for gastronomy.
At Constance Halaveli, Executive Chef Jordi Villa (ex-Bulli) recently introduced a dynamic new menu to the new Kaika Sushi Bar. The Creation menu in particular is an adventurous take on Japanese culinary art and traditions, featuring ‘Kombu Chawanmushi’ with shiitake, spring onion and sea urchin, and the Balinese style Yellow fin tuna served with soft shell crab, sweet sour vegetables and mango salsa.
