Chef Michal Konrad of Fou Zoo at Jetwing Hotels

At Jetwing, a simple question is asked. Why eat?

Many would say that to eat is to sate hunger; however what of satisfaction? Culinary indulgence is often overlooked, and frowned upon as well. Jetwing believes different, and seeks gastronomical perfection, fun and playfulness in every dish through flavor and presentation. Having identified such as being integral to a visitor’s experience during a stay, Jetwing is featuring a world renowned chef to cook up a veritable storm-for-your-tastebuds seven course dinner at three of their luxurious properties this April!

Chef Michal Konrad of Slovakia will be featuring his own unique touch to Pan Asian cuisine at Jetwing Beach, Jetwing Lighthouse and Jetwing Vil Uyana, all members of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

Hailed as being revolutionary in his ideas and dishes, Chef Michal boasts a wealth of experience at famed restaurants such as Cocoon, Kyashii, and Chino Latino in London as well as currently being the Head Chef of Bratislava’s premier Pan Asian restaurant, Fou Zoo. Fou Zoo is a novel concept, where ‘Fou’ is the wind; symbolising wishes and desires that are floating free, and where ‘Zoo’ means to create, where life is breathed into all things.

Such a concept is widely praised, with TripAdvisor reviews placing the 84 seater restaurant, number 25 of over 200 others, and many commenting on the exquisite blend of dishes. In addition, one year after Fou Zoo’s opening; they received five stars in Trend Top Restaurant – the most prestigious restaurant ranking in Slovakia.

In his own words, “[the perfect dish] is like all ingredients and flavors would make love on the plate.” Chef Michal will kick off his tour of Sri Lanka at Jetwing Beach, Negombo on 12 April at the exclusive Black Coral, renowned for its fine dining experiences, move on Jetwing Vil Uyana near the ancient stronghold of King Kashyapa on 16 April, and his final appearance in the country will be in the culturally rich city of Galle, at Bawa’s finest creation: Jetwing Lighthouse on 21 April.

 “I have known Michal for many years, and his style of cooking is…different, to say the least! The way he looks at the simple act of eating, and enjoying, as well as his dedication to the perfect mix of flavor, aroma and presentation makes the whole experience one that is to be remembered,” says Jetwing Lighthouse General Manager Robert Claesson.

 “Since Michal will be at Jetwing Beach, Jetwing Vil Uyana and Jetwing Lighthouse, all are welcome to join us at any of the 7 course dinners at our fine dining outlets.”
