Six Senses Laamu Welcomes Chef Andersen

Six Senses Laamu has announced that guests will have the opportunity to experience the cuisine of Danish chef Thomas Rode Andersen in January 2013. Since joining Copenhagen’s Kong Hans Kælder Restaurant as head chef and managing director, the establishment has been awarded a Michelin Star.

During his visit to Six Senses Laamu, Andersen is planning two Signature Dinners, slated on January 5 and 10; plus a personal cooking class on January 9. The dinners will be hosted in the resort’s LEAF Restaurant.

Originally hailing from Denmark’s Southern Jutland, Andersen joined Kong Hans Kælder restaurant in 1996. It is set in one of the city’s oldest medieval buildings, which was converted to a restaurant in 1975. As a multi-award winning chef and author of several books about gastronomy, Andersen also recently turned to television, where he has hosted a series with more than 200 episodes over the past two years. Included in this was a culinary discovery expedition of Mauritius.

Just prior to his visit to the Maldives, he opens a paleo food concept outlet in Copenhagen. The concept is also being introduced to the Kong Hans Kælder restaurant, expected to elevate paleo dishes to the realm of fine dining.

Six Senses Laamu sits in isolation as the only resort in the Maldives southern atoll. Powder white sand and turquoise water encircle the tropical island. Sustainably-created villas sit on the beach or stilted above the lagoon.
